Mr. Guillermo. I contacted you yesterday regarding getting

Hello Mr. Guillermo. I contacted you yesterday regarding getting an F-1 Visa with a criminal case still open in the states. I have a followup question to that:You said there can be two outcomes either rejecting until case is solved or giving me F-1 Visa with Parole, given that I check with the authorities once in the States. So my question is: Is there a way I can push for the latter outcome? I am asking this for two important reasons: resolving this abroad is very difficult as I have no original document pertaining to the case with me, i.e. if I need to mail anything to a hired Criminal Lawyer I need to be there to mail any required documents. Second of all resolving this might take months and I am a Senior with one semester or two semesters to graduate and missing the fall semester while waiting on court dates will cause a lot of problems for me.

I'm an international undergraduate student. My friends and I

I'm an international undergraduate student. My friends and I were caught with Marijuana possession (small amount) in April 2014. The case is still open as I am trying to prove that the drugs were not mine (no conviction). Long story short, I traveled abroad and need to get a new F-1 to go back. My quest is how much would this history would negatively affect my application? I know that controlled substances are grounds for inadmissibility, so is it very difficult or outright impossible? How can I improve my chances?finally, we were detained then released, does that count as arrest? In other words would I need to disclose this in my application?
