I was expelled from my old school due to a misunderstanding, which led me to loose my students visa status (Nov.1st 2011). However, right after I got expelled from my old school, I applied for B-2 visa and it got approved. With my new valid visa status I got admitted to a new school, so I was put under International Student category, but now my B-2 is expired (Apr.14th 2012) and it is too late for reinstatement; moreover, I don't want to risk going back to my country for reentry. Since I was admitted as B-2 visa holder, I cannot register for my classes until I show to the school my valid visa. In addition, I graduated my high school in Montana, and I have been living in Illinois for almost 5 years now.
It seems unlikely that you can get reinstated, but you may have other visa options to consider. This gets very personal and is not something that can be reasonably discussed in detail on avvo.com.
This is why I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Our offices are also in Chicago.

I can understand your inability to speak with the international student adviser--Please contact an immigration advocate to discuss other possible options.
I agree with my colleagues. You should meet with an experienced immigration attorney.

Since you have overstayed by only a few weeks, you should be able to get a student visa abroad by returning to your country and applying. If you worked without permission, there may be problems.
