Okay, it seems that my green card process is going to take a little longer than I anticipated. So I am now seriously considering postponing the MBA applications till next year :(

Actually my wife was born outside India, so we fall under EB3 - Rest of the World. We have prepared our I485 application (Planning to send the application on the first of July).

So hopefully we should get the EAD in 3-6 months. But I am worried that the actual green card might take a long time (Because the whole world is going to file the I485 in July). Now I am not sure how I can go for studies on an EAD. Maybe I should post this question on the b-school application section?

Do you have any suggestions for me?

You are safe. You can pursue an MBA as long as you are legally present in the US. A pending 485 makes you a legal resident.

if any RFE comes while you are not on H1b(while pursuing an MBA ) --Can be Risky

If your Spouse can file for a Greencard independently, she can always add you while filing the I-485 , which means you can get a EAD and keep working till the GC process continues

i have a similar problem but not planning to delay the Apps..as i am older applicant compared to the Young turks that are attacking the MBA now

Thanks for the response, guys. I've posted a more detailed question in the B-school application section.

ncprasad, will I continue to have a pending 485 if I have quit the job for an MBA? Please give me some more details about what you said.

Ozmba2006, my wife can't get a green-card process started for her (Not in the near future anyway). You are in a similar situation? Would you mind informing how you are tackling the situation? I am also moving towards being an older applicant. So I also want to not postpone my MBA application.

Good question. Technically, you can leave the sponsoring employer after a 6 month period after your EAD. I have not seen official endorsements for this statement but know a couple of friends who did this(They changed jobs, did not go to school.) I believe you can go to school provided the 140 was approved and 485 is pending.

The best course of action for you is to get some expert legal advice from an experienced attorney.

Guys, I have decided to go ahead with my applications without worrying about how I will get a visa to be able to attend the program. If I do get selected in one of the 5 M7s that I am applying to, then I am sure I'll be able to find a way to sort out the visa mess.

Okay, time to focus on the essays now :)
