    Hey guys,

    so I have a european passport and I wish to stay, work part-time and study in the US.

    I have just finished my A-level so I want to go to US to study.
    Now.. its still undecided for me which College I will go to.. and I have no clue about VISA or anything..

    With my passport, I have 90 days VISA FREE STAY PERMIT for USA.. but how and what do I do now?

    Should I apply for Visa now, or can I go to the US and apply at colleges and they will provide with student visa?

    What grades for O-level and A-level do they want for Colleges?


    Please help me out here.. I am really confused.

    Thanks

    I would apply for the Visa first, you should be fine, it's just for your protection because if your in the US and the visa is rejected you may have wasted money/time

    Applying Visa for the USA is HUGE TROUBLE..
    But I hear that colleges dont look for visa, they will the ones to provide the Student visa.

    I am really lost what to do.. only have 3-4 weeks time till I can go to the US...

    can't you just contact the american embassy in your country and ask them what you need to do? They'll probably know everything about it and are always willing to help.

    Its a big hassle bro [​IMG].
    They dont even have a direct contact number. The number they have for questions, calling costs about 2 pounds a minute.. and god knows how long I have to stay on the line to get in touch with them.

    well you could at least send them an e-mail, explaining your problem. They always reply within a couple of days.
    You could also contact the ministry of foreign affairs.

    well, i'd apply right now if I where you, I found this maybe that'll help you.
    Good luck, and i hope you're allowed to stay in the US [​IMG]

    You could also contact the school. I am sure you won't be the first student visa scenario they have ever had.

    I think you better decide what school you want to go to before coming over, then get in contact with them. I sure they know how to go about getting a student visa.

    You'd probably have to do SATS and those entry tests, whatever they call em.
