If your really interested contact your local Universities and find out. You will be pleasantly surprised.

A lot of science and engineering PhDs are "free" at prestigious schools.  One of my best friends did his PhD program and made like $20k/yr while doing it.  It is because they are research assistants and basically some professor's bitch.

You'd never know she wasn't born here. She was an excellent student, went to prestigious colleges, and has a masters degree in a legit field. She has employers willing to sponsor her, yet she can't get a permanent visa and is going to be deported. She's from a secular country with a Muslim majority, too, not somewhere like Saudi Arabia.

Stuff like this doesn't get any press, though, so you'd never know it.


What's funny (not haha funny) is just 4 years ago, the Repuiblican candidate was saying "we should be stapling green cards to their diplomas."  How the platform has changed...

Is that like full tuition +20k? Or 20k to cover a part of the tuition. (Because I know over here USC/UCLA are 40-60k/year for masters)

Poor Medwed doesn't seem to understand what the term illegal means. If a person is enrolled in a university and has a student visa then he/ she is not illegal. All that crap about taking some else's spot is just that: crap.

All master's programs are not created equally when it comes to candidate support.

Full tuition.  Plus like $1500-$2000/mo to cover living expenses.

Student visas for the whole family , yea right . Sorry if your story does not make much sense in a context of US immigration rules.
Tell a better story next time.

You have no idea what you're talking about. You're just making shit up to fit your narrative. You have so many facts wrong, I don't even know where to start, and it's not even worth it because you'll just continue to make shit up.

If you have a visa, and have had a visa the entire time you've been in the country, you're a legal immigrant. How do you not understand this basic fact?

Ohhh fuck , you teeny boppers . That is why I have to explain everything 10 fucking times because none of you have enough life exp. to understand WTF I am talking about. Here is scenario for you that applies to your sob story about the good muslims: Come to US on any temp visa, overstay it. = become Illegal. But, wait in US that does not prevent you from enrolling all your kids into school. So what? Enrolling kids to school gets them US papers that allow them to apply to University.
As I said tell a better story next time.

That's a complete non-sequitor to his story.  The woman came here on a student visa as a student and stayed here through her entire education.  Then she tried finding a job to stay, but couldn't get sponsored, so she has to go back (so she did).  Explain to me what immigration laws were violated because you seem to be an immigration law expert.

None comes on a student visa with kids , try again.

I'll take false assumptions for $1,000 Alex.  Enrolling kids into school does not "get them papers". And once one overstays a visa that person is not eligible to obtain a student visa

Proof you don't know what you're talking about:
 

Quote:
An international student may be accompanied to the U.S. by his or her dependent(s) at any time. Dependents are defined as spouses and/or unmarried minor children. Children over the age of 21 are not eligible to enter as the dependent of an international student (F-1 or J-1 student). An international student’s dependents may apply for their F-2 or J2 visas at the same time that the international student applies for an F-1 or J-1 visa, or they may apply for their F-2 or J-2 visas at a later date. If they are granted the visa, they may enter the United States when the international student does, or they may enter the U.S. at a later date.
