<p>I am posting here because I don't know which other forum can address my question.</p>
<p>Will I be considered a permanent resident?</p>
<p>I have been waiting for the green card approval for five years. Six months ago I've had the final interview and a month ago I was asked to send my passport to the embassy. I understand that whenmy passport returns I will have six months to arrive in the USA and get the actual green card.</p>
<p>Now meantime I want to apply to a college but I'm afraid that I will not receive the green card on time to be registered in the school as green card holder. </p>
<p>How much time does it take to receive the actual green card once I'm in the states?
Do you think that the approval from the embassy is enough for college\FAFSA to consider me as a permanent resident?</p>
