Hi i read through the checklist for seeing if your qualified to be a us citizen and i read a check box saying i have not entered the us under any status until after my 26th birthday.and its starting to freak me out so i was wondering if i entered the us as a tourist with my family when im 16 means i cant qualify for citizenship if i enter us after 26?

I recently applied for citizenship and did not see anything like this. I think you have it confused with Selective Service, which is a requirement to register for military service. That's the only place in the application where the age of 26 is mentioned.

Your fine. Nothing to worry about regarding entering the U.S. as a tourist when you were 16.
