anod our solution to that has been to look at cities with numerous law schools and med schools (NYC, DC, Boston, Chicago mainly). I'd really like to stay down in the states after graduation (coming back to Canada to practice is a huge pain).I just spoke with her, she's obviously not too happy about this. Really at a loss as to what to do, she's even talking about giving up on medicine and writing the LSATs and going in to law (would not suit her at all). This is not making me happy at all...
Her studying for the MCATs full time would be good, but it would also be a giant pain in the ass in that she'd be totally broke. I'm almost certain she could get a work visa in Palm Springs, but there are no law schools nearby. I'm not delaying a year, not a chance of that. How hard would it be for me to get American citizenship once I have my student visa?
Furthermore, the problems I see with the Uncle thing:If she gets an H-1 visa to work with her Uncle, and then STOPS working there, her visa expires and she has to go back home. So the H-1 from the Uncle is most likely NOT going to solve your problems. (Of course, you could have here work there while she's applying to Med School, etc, but she couldn't stop working there until her change to F-1 comes through.)
If money is not a problem, she could just take 6 credits per semester (1/2 time) at any college and that would qualify her for a student visa. She could take classes at a community college or a uni that might help serve as prep for the MCAT. When she eventually becomes a doctor, she'll have a much easier time getting a green card, since just about any job in the medical field is eligible for a green card due to shortages.Speaking of which, can lawyers from other countries easily get work visas/green cards? I've never heard anything about this.
