This is probably a stupid question, but has anyone actually done this and SUCCEEDED?

    Do you know anyone that wanted to get into a Grad School into the United States so bad that they became U.S. Citizen and then apply?? And they actually got accepted??

    I would venture it's harder to become a US citizen before entering grad school than to actually get admitted :)

    Unless you had an easy way to gain citizenship (like already married to someone who's a citizen), becoming a citizen is probably much harder than getting into grad school.

    Becoming a citizen is not hard. It takes years. For a marriage, about 3 years you can start applying for citizenship. My friend's sister just got married to her boyfriend. They have been together as lovers for like five years already, and she was a foreigner.
