I have a 5-yrs B-1 visa....should I change to F-1?
I'm a prospective grad. student in one American college. I currently hold a business/tourist B-1 visa (for grad. visit purpose on March 2012), I got it for 5-yrs term (which is surprising).
My concern is do I need to change it to student visa (F-1) when they send me an i-20? Because the process to get another visa is really lengthy and I HAVE TO pay a non-refundable $100!
I'd rather save the money to buy other things if I actually don't need to change, since the purpose of visa is to let non-US enter America legally, and I alrdy get 5-yrs entry!
Can anyone pls give me suggestion on this issue?
