Notes for studying in the United States

In recent years, the popularity of studying abroad is growing steadily. More and more people are going to study abroad, and many of them choose to study in the United States. Many people will think that the United States is a free country to study in the United States, but this is a one-sided understanding, so what should be noted to study in the United States? Let’s find out.

School requires the f-1 students to provide proof of medical insurance during each school year, otherwise they cannot register. In other words, the insurance for international students (also known as 留学生保险) is mandatory. Insurance is a really important thing for Americans. It’s a necessity! There is a saying that “you can’t afford to be sick without health insurance in the United States”. This statement is not exaggerated, because it is really expensive to seek medical treatment in the United States. If you don’t have insurance, you won’t be able to see a dentist in America (also known as 美国看牙).

There are also some problems to pay attention to when looking for a job after graduation. Most American companies hire locally when they hire, which means that if you’re a student in New York, it’s probably best to do an internship in New York (also known as纽约实习) or find a job in New York (also known as 纽约找工作), or you might get turned down. American companies think it is easier for them to find out about the situation at the nearest school and the job fair is more convenient.

Finally, there is the question of legal identity. F1 student status is invalid after graduation, so there must be a suitable status for us to continue to stay in the United States legally. In addition to h1b, o1 and some other work visas, it is a good choice to apply for a green card, but it is difficult to apply for a green card, and the green card schedule (also known as 绿卡排期) is very long, you can choose to ask an immigration lawyer (also known as 移民律师) to help you apply.
