    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . No, a student visa does not lead to a green card and if the consult knew of your desire he/she will pull your visa.

    Answered . No, you can not convert a student visa to a greencard. But, if you are a good student and get good grades, after you get your BA/BS you will get a 1 year work permit. If you are lucky enough to find a good job, your employer can sponsor you for a greencard.
