Plus, it may be difficult for him to re-enter the US again on an F-1 visa
once an immigrant petition has been filed on his behalf...

He'd have to maintain lawful status on his own as an F-1 or some other nonimmigrant classification until the immigrant visa becomes available. It could take over 20 years.

It's 4th preferrence which is the lowest of all.

Check my timeline for wait. It was a long wait, but worth it in the end. We used our time wisely and saved, saved, saved.

Best of luck.

It didn't used to take as long as it takes now for family 4th category.
