QUESTION: Considering "TN" is a status and not a visa, can I hold an F-1 and TN status at the same time?
ANSWER: No. You cannot hold TN-status and F-1 status at the same time. The status with which you enter the US is the status you are to remain on, unless you apply for a change of status to another non-immigrant status or adjust your status to immigrant status.
QUESTION: If not, can I continue studying full-time just with a TN status?
ANSWER: If you are asking whether you can work according to your TN-status and go to school full time, yes, so long as the studies are incidental to your status in the US. But you cannot be a full-time student and not working, if you are in the US on TN-status. You would need to be in F-1 status to do that.
QUESTION: If I go to the boarder and they reject my TN application, am I still able to hold onto my F-1 status?
ANSWER: You lose your status when you leave the US. So you would have to use your F-1 visa stamp to re-enter the US as a student on F-1 status. Your F-1 visa should not be cancelled based on your request for TN-status at the border.
