Re: Moving to US (pending Covid)

Listen to these posts! If you're going to be based in LIC, in will only be massive pain to live in Manhattan or Brooklyn. Queens is definitely your best bet. I am in Astoria, which is great!...

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

No doubt part of it, but at the same time, the two hesitators in my sphere are both intrepid travellers. The kind who have trekked through inner Mongolia, after getting all the recommended jabs......

Re: Off topic Political Posts moved from Coronavirus thread

Re: CORONAVIRUS PART II

What I want to know is how many doses are being wasted in this walk-up system? Don't doses of Pfizer and Moderna need to be thawed well ahead of time, with no potential to refreeze them? I hope I'm...

Re: N400 interview - getting worried

I had brought both mine, but was only ever asked for the current one. A friend was asked for his expired one, but didn't have it -- I don't think he had to go back with it later.

Re: I-130 information

Okay, thanks for the explanation.

At the risk of being nosy, what exactly is it you plan to do when you get to the US? Do you have a career path in mind? Depending on the field, that may offer its...

Re: I-130 information

FOUR year Masters? Is that part-time?

Re: Covid-19 Vaccination -- Have You Gotten It?

First, I agree with everything else you said. But I think it's important to keep the conversations about the potentially unpleasant effects of the shots right out in the open. Discussing them in the...

re: President Trump.

I'm not saying people aren't totally on board at this point. It's more a question of how much of the narrative has been a plant? I can think of some specific forum handles (back in the day), who...
