\im not too sure... but ive read similar posts... if u do a search or look in links of interest to foreign dentists... i think ull get ure answer....
anyway as far as my knowledge goes if ure on a H4 and applied for green card means that u want to settle down here and become a permanent resident.. if u convert to a F 1 mean its a student visa , just to study and then go back...( non immigrant visa).. so its a kinda conflicting situation...
i think u can study on an H4 , u dont have to convert to an f1...
