The topic of this thread was simply an attempt to garner more information to build on the vague stuff that I already had in my head. Especially considering that I'm in a serious relationship with somebody in the US who had been studying in the UK previously. I'm sure you understand, yet I appreciate that US border control doesn't deal in sentimentality.
Once again, I appreciate your help and your honesty. Thanks.
Bilingual in the US means that you speak English and Spanish, and nothing else! It'll probably get you an extra buck an hour if you work in a call center at 10 bucks/hour. However, you wont be able to secure suitable immigration status through such a job.....but I give you the info if, for example, you were to marry your gf and come here through that.
