Hello, I am currently a high school senior and am starting to apply to college.
Unfortunately i am one of the unlucky ones that was born on the wrong side of the border . With this stated, i would like to ask advice from other people that have already been through what i am going through. My question is; When applying to college and you are asked what your citizenship status is you regularly have three options, a) citizen , b) alien non-immigrant to US, c)alien permanent resident of the US.
If i choose A i'm not asked anything else.
if i choose b i am asked to use the international student application and send visa information.
if i choose C i am asked to send a copy of my visa or a copy of the back of my green card.
I can't give what they ask from B and C.
So what do i put on the application? A? will i be asked to submit other things afterwords? In other words, do i have the risk that i will be accepted and then be asked to provide proof of legal status?
Also, at the beginning of the application i was asked to fill in the blank with my place/country of birth. i have not submitted the application yet so i do not know if a flag will come up when i try to submit it if i select A yet i put down that i was born in a different country.
What have you guys done or what do you guys suggest i do?
any help would be greatly appreciated!
