Default Student-Athlete wanting to stay in the USA

Applying and being accepted into Graduate School has not been an easy task.
Are there any other ways I can stay in the USA? I am a student-athlete wanting to work with Adapted Physical Activity and Special Needs individuals within Exercise

If you fall under any of these categories, then yes, otherwise graduate school may be your only option.

No problem. That has all you need to know. The USA is a very hard country to get into unless you're in some way related to a citizen but there is also a lot of misleading information out there too. Pulaski's Ways are the only ways that it can be done.

Marry a local, or go for further education, everything else will be slim pickings...unless you're a very good athlete, OxBridge rower kind of good.

Good luck and welcome to BE

If you have a strong background in performance/coaching, have you looked at either a coaching assistantship, or a teaching assistantship in whatever department/school delivers the general ed physical activity/sports classes? That can help cover a lot of expenses.
