Though no exp, I guess a B1/B2 BEP Visa would do just fine, according to it, they are not dependent on you (unlike a spouse visa), so it should not be a problem.

1> do i need to be on H1....is F1/Opt good enough-------> u dunt need h1. f1 visa is enough

2> we have a i20 to determine financial need....what about parents on B2, any guidelines on the amount of funds per person per month-> they will sponsor themselves. u need to get a letter from Intl student office stating that he is a grad f1 student @ so and so univ etc. It will act as an invitation letter. its sorta letter of certification that u r a valid F1 student.

3> is it better if I sponsor them or they sponsor themselves....-> they can sponsor themselves.

I second wordbot.

You will increase pain if you show you are sponsering.

Also, when you go online you to book date have to select applicant (say father) and co-appliacnt(i.e. Mother) so => one visa appointment and the same visa counter. Smile

d.Shaloam: Yes to the first question and no to the second. Ask your parents to keep all possible documents handy with them, including copies of all your documents (copies of your passport, visa, I-20s, OPT card if applicable). But do not volunteer information not specifically or before being asked for, that rule goes for them too as much as it does for you.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix. Also, before requesting for profile evaluations, please go through this excellent post.

2) Please take some time out to read these three threads in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.

I love to read, and then I regurgitate. I write - a lot - as my posts here and on other outlets would show. I do not make apologies for what I write (and how long it is). I do not sugarcoat things either. I don't tolerate vague questions, for any reasons - ignorance arising out of an inability to locate information when the necessary tools to do so (i.e. the internet, libraries, university websites, other forums/bulletin boards, etc.) are readily available, is not any kind of an acceptable excuse.
