I have few questions about changing status from J1 to F1.I'm currently on J1 visa and wanted to change it at the end. How long should I apply before my program ends? How does it works with insurance? Since I'm gonna apply for schools,and that's why I need F1,am I allowed to work during my school? And if I do, does it have to be part time? My program ends at May,3rd and I would like to go home for 15 days before school,am I allowed?
Thank you very much for you help
