Nice to meet you pearl. and I was accepted into PhD program
My name is***** and I was accepted into PhD program in Purdue University for the spring 2021 semester and my PUID is *****73. I am writing today to seek some advice on the change of visa issue. Could you kindly give me some advice about what to do next as it is very important to determine whether I can enroll the spring semester courses or not. I came to US on 13th Jan 2020 on B2 visa and then pandemic broke out. Due to skyrocketing plane ticket price and the safety concern , I applied for the extension of B2 visa on 6th June 2020 to 12th January, 2021 which is still pending until now.The case was received but hasn't been approved yet. During this period , I applied for your doctoral program and received an offer letter from your school to start my study in the spring semester of 2021. Here are three questions I would like you to help me with. 1. Can I apply for change of status from B2 to F1 now if I want to study in spring when the previous application of extension is still pending ? 2.Or do I need the approval of first extension case before submitting a second extension of B2 and at the same time, submit an application to change my status from B2 to F1? Since it usually takes a few months, I have to enroll courses in fall semester ? 3. Concerning my circumstances, what can I do to change my status without going back to China because US embassy stops its issuing new F1 visas right now. … read more
