Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
Your situation is a bit more complex because of the RFE.
In theory you can transfer and not go back to the language school. However, the entire RFE was based on the need to improve your language skills and therefore there is the potential of misrepresentation if you do not "stick with the program" at least for a few months before transferring.
I would suggest beginning a new program of study in January for the Spring semester.
ok I will go to my old school. But can I transfer in 1 month to another language school ?
there is no reinstatement. The DSO has deferred my old I-20. Or at least this is what he says.
Oh, I missed that. Sorry. Excellent.
OK so give it 4-6 weeks.
Ask an I-20 of 3 months.
Then attend 6 weeks before transferring to the other language school ?
Sounds like a good plan.
ok. But why 6 weeks vs 4 weeks ?
There is some requirement ? Or just recommended ?
The schedule from old school (starting very early) is not convenient for me.
I can do 6 weeks. I think I will do that before transferring. After all, I could not make it without your recommendations.
Just the schedule is tough (school far and schedule starting very early).
