    Hi, I was an exchange student 2016 Jan~2017 Jan and after the exchange student program, I moved to the different state with my parents. and I wanted to continue my high school career so I applied for change of status I-539 form in January as soon as I moved in. and I started attending a private school end of January. I got I-20 from them but I had a problem paying SEVIS fee and international student administrator so after that year. I changed my school to different school and I got my I-20 and this time I also paid SEVIS fee.
    I got a mail from USCIS 2017 November that I need additional evidence for my case so I sent them I-20 and SEVIS record from my new school.
    and today I checked on the USCIS website and it says my case was denied. I haven't gotten my mail yet about why it was denied
    I'm 17 and I really want to stay in the US.
    and also I applied for permanent residency when I applied for changing the status because one of my parents is a permanent resident. How long would that take?
    I've been panicking for a few hours now.
    For now, what should I do?

    You should wait for the notice from the USCIS. It should explain why they denied your application. What do you mean by applying for permanent residency. Did you submit Form I-130?
