I was granted asylum status as of 5/8/2012. I subsequently applied for permanent residency just over a year later and received my card in August 2013. The green card shows 8/16/2012 as the "permanent resident since" date. I would like to apply for citizenship and I'm wondering what date to count the 90 day window from. Is it the 90 days from 5/8/2012 or 90 days from 8/16/2012.
