I got a very low variable loan for b-school (prime less 25bps) through Wells Fargo. This was 3 years ago when I had an 800+ credit score. Shop around though...

Yes a GC holder can co-sign. I have done it for one of my friends

I am on H1B visa and filing DS160 for my father’s visitor (B1/B2) visa. There is a question that says Relatives status , in this case my status and the options are 1. U.S. CITIZEN 2. U.S LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENT 3. NON IMMIGRANT 4. OTHER/I DO NOT KNOW.

Not sure if I need to pick option 3 or 4 here. Any help would be appreciated!!

What do you all use to file for taxes after switching to h1b?


Filed green card application in Feb 2018 in EB1. Just received a notice for my interview next month. I know the priority date currently is Feb 2017 currently but do they keep doing interviews?


I’m scheduled to join PwC (Chicago) in May. My compensation offered is based on Chicago’s COL. Currently, I’m based out of TX and plan to relocate to Chicago in August as my TX apt lease expires end of July. My LCA was certified with two work locations: (1) PwC Chicago Office (2) My TX apt address. Also my H1B COE with PwC is approved.

Can I legally work from TX until end of July given my compensation offered is based on Chicago’s COL. If yes, will my tax deductions be based on IL or TX?

If I'm on H1B and start an MBA program in Fall 2018, can I quit early and take the summer off and stay in the States? Or would I have to go back to India for that period? OR is it better to keep working until the date on my new I-20? Purely from a legal perspective, not financial.

Deloitte told me that I need to be on a one year project when they file for your green card. A lot of consulting projects are not even a year. How do you guys achieve this? #worksponsorship

Is it ok to register as a direct sale consultant while on H1b? Like scheme pyramid type of sale (Avon,etc), while registering, they are asking for ssn. Really just want the product vs selling and making money on it. Thoughts? Couldn’t find anything on google.
