My dad is going to visit the college this week, and discuss all the options available. We have chosen a course so I guess they just need to accept me and go from there.
By live with my dad I mean actually live in the same household as him for a while, I'm not entirely sure whether I want to live in the US permanently forever. Hence the non-immigrant visa.
As another point of enquiry, if I do decided I like living there, my dad will be applying for citizenship very soon apparently so could I switch from a visa to say a green card while I'm still there, say like a year in on my 2 year visa?
