Hello. I came to the US on a J-1 visa and then i changed my status to a B-2 and afterwards to an F-1 status. I understand I am not allowed to leave the US until I finish my studies. How would I be able to get an F-1 visa?
My plan is to go to a third country for example Canada and apply for an F-1 visa at that country. I would also like to know which countries I could go to get this done? I am Ukrainian.
My question is what are the chances of getting my F-1 visa and if I fail in getting an F-1 visa would I still retain my F-1 status?
Also if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can go about getting an F-1 visa another way or while remaining in the US I would greatly appreciate it.
