You did not tell us whether or not your adoption too place in Georgia, how old you are, or anything we would need to learn about your situation to provide help. However, what you are asking is not really the type of thing this forum is for - a specific fact scenario doesn't really seem to be the appropriate kind of question to put to avvo lawyers!

I believe you are saying that you were born in there and adopted here in Georgia. Now that you are a US Citizen through your adoption, you want to know what your status would be there. If that is the case, you should consult with an immigration attorney, as I believe you will be looked at as any other US Citizen looking to study there. You may get a better answer directing your question to an immigration forum and giving a few more details as the other attorney suggested.
The above information is general in nature. In order to obtain more specific and legal advice upon which to base your important decisions, please contact our office directly for a free phone or in person consultation.

Whoa, Nelly! This is more of an immigration question than an adoption question! About which, I just told you everything I know!
I have no idea what "the Embassy" will do (if that's what matters!). Only been in Georgia for a week and a half --- meaning, the adoption didn't occur here? You're originally from the Philippines? American citizen?
Frankly, I don't think your adoptive status has anything to do with it.
I hope you're also asking this question in the immigration forums!
