Question by Joseph: How can a Canadian student get to a American university?
I’m 15, and I live in Toronto, Canada right now, but I would really like to go to a university in the US, especially one in North Carolina like UNC or Duke. I have relatives who live in Raleigh, NC and I have visited many times with my parents, and I really like it there. I have even seen the UNC campus in Chapel Hill, and I think I would like to go there.
But I would like to know how I can make this possible? I guess I would need a student visa to do that, but when should I start looking into that or applying for that? Should I start all that now, or do I still have time? I’m in grade 9 right now. And if I go to the US on a student visa is it possible to apply for permenant residency once I’m there? Because I want to live there aswell. I’m trying really hard in my work at school so I can get good grades, and I’m not very popular because of it so I really want to make my goal, but I need to know how to start doing that, and if I can stay once I’m there?
I also hear that to get to a US university, you have to be good at sports like football or soccer or they won’t let you in. Is that just a rumor, because some kids at my school have said that??

Lol the sports thing you heard is a bunch of crap.
I have known quite a few Canadians who have gone to school in the USA. And I can only think of one of them that played any sports at all.
Keep working hard at schooling. If you want to do well and you work hard you will succeed and you will live your dreams.
