You have to have 3 years total. So 90 days before the 3 year anniversary you can apply for citizenship. That is what we are doing too, when the time comes.

If you are still married to the spouse who petitioned you, then 3 years total from being issued GC. If not, five years.

Approval of ROC is not a requirement for Naturalization application. You could apply for N400 as soon as your eligibility begins whether the ROC is approved or still pending at that point. Currently, most CSC people will have their ROCs approved before their N400 eligibility begins. VSC on the other hand is running more than a year behind on I751, hence a lot of VSC people would become eligible to apply for naturalization before their ROCs are approved.
