What do you mean by that, would you mind explaining to me? I don't seem to have any other options, so I'm just trying to figure out what is the most preferable in my case.
You should not be overstaying, period. Full stop, When you do, you violate the laws of the country that hosts you. Talk to the DSO and see how you can make your case strong.
I overstayed for medical reasons and because I wasn't aware I was out of status. I can't make my case strong because I'm enrolled in a short term program and I'm about to graduate, and I applied for the reinstatement late. Here I'm just seeking advice because I made a mistake and I want to fix it. I'm looking for help, not criticism.
The only good advice we can give you is to leave as soon as you can because staying here out of status is a one way path to nowhere in terms of any future status in this country.
