Hi, I have been working here in the States from Oct 2013 with H1B visa. My current company is willing to apply me a greencard However, my lawyer have warned me that the wait for the greencard is about 7-10 yrs now giving that I only have BS degree with less than 5 yrs experience. She suggested me to go on and get a master degree so the wait will be much shorter.
My questions are,
1. Can I go back to school as a part time for master degree while I work fulltime in my company. (without changing my status back to F1)
2. If I can do so, Do I quilify for residential tuition rate? or I still have to pay like international? (note that, I have obtain H1b and stay in the States for more than 1 yr now)
3. Once I graduate my master degree & my company apply a greencard how long process will take
