I having a hugh problem. A couple of schools that I have applied to have rejected me due to the fact that I currently do not hold a permanent residency card. I have been in the U.S for more that 5yrs...just graduated here as well. I have applied for the green a long time ago but the incompentent INS misplaced my files...it boiled down to me applying again this year(but the normal process takes a whole year to get the card!!!!) As a refugee status, I have indefinite stay and work authorization. I am able to get federal loans and stuff. But What can I do to convince these medicals schools to aleast consider my application (which would include getting an interview). I need serious help here guys...THe INS are unresponsive and I do not want to stay at home for a whole year and go through this process of primary app.. and the rest of the headache. your are the last hope here .....What to do? or What can be done?
