    Re: Is a Driver's License a dealmaker/breaker?

    The coordinators who used to post here more or less said the license thing doesn't really affect your application much unless you're an alternate. If a BOE is looking for someone with a license,...

    Re: Moving House

    I guess where I'm confused is, are you changing your schools in April or August?
    And is your town such a hot real estate spot that someone is going to snap up your place as soon as you leave? And...

    Re: Moving House

    Re: Criminal History! Major Crisis!

    You said it was dismissed, so why don't you order an FBI background check and see if shows up (I think it will, but why not see for yourself what your record says)? If it doesn't, then it's over. ...

    Re: Visa expiration question

    Your visa is automatically extended two (?) months once you turn in the application for processing, so it would probably be okay, but only immigration can really answer that question for you.

    Re: US Applications - Megathread

    I can't look at the application, so from what you're saying, I think you've done the best you can. It's worth shooting an email to your consulate if you're worried about it. To me, I would think...
