Hi, A decade ago I moved to the US for a MS program; then stayed on in H1B. Employer started GC processing and I-140 was approved (now lying dormant). Then I quit my job and moved to home country (India). Have been in India 2 years. Now, I want to return to the US on F1 to pursue my MBA. (a) I understand that my immigration intent will make my F1 visa app tricky. But how tricky? Do visas normally get rejected under such situations? (b) What strategy/approach should I use to maximize my chances? Any tips? (c) The fact that I gave up GC processing and moved to India - does it help? (d) I'm going to Cornell for my MBA. Will the Ivy League brand name help? Thanks very much in advance for your inputs.
