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.

This was a couple...

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?

If you are planning to settle in the US long-term, I would recommend pursuing your graduate studies in the US. It's not all sky-high fees, especially when it...

Re: About to start O1A application - again.

Boiler actually answered your question. They are valid for a 3-year period, so you can enter at any point in those three years. Upon arrival, the PoE officer will admit you in O-1 status, with...

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: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

I have a friend who swears by Mosquito Bits (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Mosquito-Bits-30-oz-Granular-Biological-Mosquito-Control-117-6/206940251) for all the tiny flying soil critters. I use...

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...

re: President Trump.

I have to wonder how many among them are just trolling for shits and giggles? I think back to the forums I frequented in the early 2000s and the grade A, "class clowns" who could troll for their...

Re: Question about British Qualifications and working in America?

This is exactly what I had in mind. I assume the Masters won't be completely free in the UK, so once you factor in any conversion headaches/expenses, it might not cost much more to just do it in the...

Re: Question about British Qualifications and working in America?

If you are planning to end up in the US, why not do your Masters in the US? That would not only get you over here quicker and avoid any qualification transfer headaches, but also add the extra...

Re: Who else is concerned about trip to UK for Christmas with family?

Yup, exactly. I live on my own and have seen three friends total since March (only one indoors). That time has included two funerals I couldn't attend, one near, one far.

Re: What to expect from an employer

Good call.

Though to be fair, that is exactly the kind of shitty deal US employers put forward all the time. So it's kinda-sorta culturally appropriate :starsmile:

Re: Applying for US residency

Welcome to BE ;)



Good luck. Am I right in thinking that you are obliged to go wherever you are matched? If so, I would strictly limit the research you do into any particular location. I...

Re: 2020 Election

No no no, not a hotdog. It's a sausage sizzle! You get a (grilled) sausage in bread with tomato sauce. Fancy people might hit the onions, but it's generally about simplicity. It's a cheap as piss way...

Re: British vs. American spelling

This one goes according to country of origin of the spirit, so both can be right in the same sentence. The rule of thumb is that if the country has an "e" in it, use whiskey (e.g., US, Ireland) and...

Yes, I feel like my time as an expat is definitely helping me -- I have lots of practice at missing Christmas, birthdays, weddings, etc. I'm glad to hear you are making the best of it :)

Re: 2020 and the joys of N400 waiting

They do? I'm pretty sure they didn't take my photo on my interview day. I don't actually remember if they took fingerprints -- maybe when checking in?
