Questions about college?
So I have to get a F-1 visa (a student visa).
Well, here's my situation just in case you need the details:
My dad got a H visa, so I moved to USA in 2005, when I was 9. We filed for green card, but something went wrong (not sure about details since my mom won't tell me), so it's taking longer to file one. It was still in the process but my dad passed away in 2011. My mom got a F-1 visa so we can stay. The thing is, I want to go to a college about 2 1/2 hours away because I hate my family now (except my sister).
Here are my questions:
- I don't have to take TOEFL since I lived in US for 9 years and as long as I submit SAT scores, right?
- Do colleges "kick you out" of dorms during summer?
- Can I rent a place and get a on-campus job during the school holidays so I have a reason not to see my family much? Keep in mind that I'm an international student.
