Default Student taking a year out in US

How would a student between high school and university go about spending his gap year working in the US? Is this at all possible?

Hi Irfan,

What exactly do you want to do in the U.S.?

If you want to visit for awhile, just for fun, you may be able to get a B-2
visa. See http://travel.state.gov-
/visa;visitors.html
. However, when you
ask to enter the U.S. at the port of entry, the INS officer will decide how
long a visit you may have, and the maximum time will be 6 months. If you
mention that you want to stay for a year, you will probably be refused
entry, and will be sent back where you came from.

If you are from a visa waiver country (see above site), and you ask to enter
the U.S. without a visa, you will be granted permission to stay for 90 days.

In these statuses, B-2 or WT (waiver for tourism), you may not be employed.
