I have applied from H4 to F1 conversion to USCIS and they received my case on Nov 27th, 2015. And today I called USCIS to know the approximate time for the process completion. They said that right now Nov 29 , 2014 cases were going on, and the approximate time is 11 months.
Is anybody having any clarity regarding this? (approximate time frame for approval)
Is there anybody who applied for same such conversion after Nov 2014 and got their process completed?
Please let me know your current status, so that I would know the approximate time frame and could take a better decision.
I applied to change the visa status for my wife to F1 and the Vermont Service Center received the application on 07/06/2015. It's been more than 6 months that her application is pending. I checked the processing time and it says they are processing the application of December 1, 2014. Is there anyone having the similar kind of situation?

Graduated high shool, applying F1 for UG in community college. Help?
I graduated from high school in June 2015. As I hadn't taken the TOEFL and SATs earlier, I took them after high school. Also, a few family issues occurred. Due to this, I didn't attend any college for Fall 2015.
I applied to 5 normal-ranked (Times Higher Education #150-200) universities and got accepted. But, I've decided that I wanna attend community college in California so that I can save up and improve my grades and then transfer to UC Berkeley, as I'm a CS student. The only step left is my visa interview. I'm worried that I might get rejected, and since I do not have time to make second attempt, I might miss my chance to go to community college.
I need to be in the U.S by November 26, 2015. Yes, I know its late, but I do have an emergency appointment approved. All that's left is trying to be confident and not get rejected.
I've probably not explained myself clearly, but if you can understand, and give any suggestions to get approved a visa for community college, it would be a great help! Anything at all.

Me: No (loud voice since I did not expect this question and I have never been to Liberia)
VO: Whats your plans after course?
Me: I will return to India and work as a Project Lead
VO: Who is your sponsor
VO: Typing seriously in the computer. After 5 minutes, took blue form (I am rejected - my mind voice) wrote one case number and told "Your application will be put in administrative processing and it will take 2-3 weeks)
Me: So is my visa approved?
VO: I can't say anything now since we have to look into your case. But you can track online. Gave blue form with 221g

I am a prospective student at NYU. They have two options, On-Campus and Online and since I am an international student and New York is a very expensive, I was wondering if I qualify for any of the J1 visa programs to work and pay for my studies while in New York. I also thought I could do the Master's online and visit the U.S. for the Summer Travel Program if I qualify.
