My fiancee was denied K1 visa 3 weeks ago because of section 212, the 2 year rule. We realized we don't really need a K1 visa because we'd just like to stay in the US for 1-2 years of graduate study and then return to China. So we were thinking about getting married in China and then applying for a F1 student visa for her in September. Would her prior K1 denial influence her being able to get a student visa? What are the odds she would be approved for the student visa?
