alright guys, someone help: selective service thing, does that apply to women too?
The selective service thing DOES NOT apply to women, since you have to be a male, aged 26 or less by the time you become a permanent resident to register. Although, in one forum I did read one of the adjudicating officers hassling an petitioner for a SIL (Status Information Letter) when the petitioner was a woman. I think that's certainly the exception to the rule, but since the letter is free, you could probably just request one to be safe -- It's not something you need to worry about because it's ridiculous to ask for selective service registration from a woman.
