So i got my visa for University of Bridgeport last month, and days after i got my visa, i got another i20 from a University of New Orleans and now i want to go to New Orleans. Now can i transfer my university, when i talked to UNO, they told me to go to Bridgeport first and then get a transfer letter from them, and then i can go to UNO. But i'm not sure about this whole process... is UB going to be okay with that? Will they do the transfer easily? I'm not sure.. what if they don't? I'll be stuck then.
Can anyone help me with this if you've had a similar experience...

Have you officially matriculated yet to either school yet or just have received two admissions? If you have put your deposit down but not officially started school, it seems like you could just potentially renege on your admissions offer. Ultimately you will need to discuss with UNO how to handle at this stage to make sure you are following protocol

I haven't paid anything accept the sevis (which i think is transferable). And i have talked with UNO, they want me to enter the US first and goto Bridgeport and get a transfer letter from them. But that would be too complicated for me and i was wondering if there's a way i could go directly to New Orleans.

They would have to let you go directly, not sure why UNO is concerned with the process of another school. Only if you are officially enrolled and/or their enrollment period at UNO has passed this semester would a transfer seem to make sense. Unfortunately you will have to follow the protocol at the school you want to attend here. Just make sure you are clear with them why they are asking you to transfer instead of directly enroll

Its because my passport has been stamped with University of Bridgeport, so they wont let me in at the port of entry if i goto New Orleans.

In those cases, do not waste your time and go directly to New Orleans department who has deals with International students. Those people know the process and documentation well and give you right direction.

I just applied for a fresh visa. The process UNO told me sounded very complicated to me.
Will update after my visa interview.
