Hi there.. I'm on F1 status right now and I am all clear with the immigration. However, I want to go for something higher and become a permanent resident. I've read numerous pages on the immigration website and I know that I can try a worker visa after I graduate. But I am not really looking forward to work for somebody else. I have some plans to start my own business here. My question is: can I apply for a green card right now? I am not married to a US citizen, don't have any family ties with US citizens.
