I am currently in Status (F2) and went for the interview at Arlington office more than a month ago.
I have received admission from a graduate school to start in Fall, but I am not sure if I will receive a decision by then. But Since it has been 150 days since I filed my case, I can now apply for EAD.
The problem is that I am not allowed to start my studies in F2 status. I cannot change it to F1 either, since my asylum case is pending. The question is, while the decision is pending and I have received the EAD, can I start my studies holding such status? Or I have to wait until the decision has been made on my case?
