Filling up DS-230

Hey, guys!

I know it may be stupid but I'm struggling to answer question 23 on the form DS-230 properly. The problem is that they ask for ALL educational institutions attended, and I've attended several universities but didn't graduate. I'm not sure if I should include all universities I started but did not finish... Should I only put the one I'm attending now and my high school?

This is not very common, I think... Well, I started getting a bachelor's degree in Business in 2003, and after a year I dropped off because I moved to the USA (2004). When I came back to Brazil last year (2007) I had a whole different perspective of what I wanted to be and I started studying Communication (journalism) in a private university, but 6 months later I was approved to study at the Federal University (public, free and better quality) with a different major (Foreign Language - English). Of course I switched to the better and free university. So in the end I have attended 3 universities but didn't get any degree yet.

Should I write all of them on the form or should I only write the one I'm currently attending?

If I write all of them, how should I specify the degree or diploma? I was thinking about something like: Bachelor - not finished.

I don't know :wacko:

I appreciate any help.

Monica

Put down all of them with the appropriate dates. There is nothing wrong with attending several education institutions, besides, you have to be honest with all the info in your paperwork just in case a related question comes up in your interview.

Hi everyone,

I am confused now.. On the DS-230 form; my attorney said I don't need to write all the schools that I went. I wrote only university, high school and primary school. but I went to a few language schools in the State too. My atttorney said I don't need to put them.. I am confused now!

Also Question 22- there are only 5 lines.. I thought it would be enough to write only my last 5 employments.. Do I have to write alll of them??? In this case where can I put more information because the space is not sufficient.

Thank you so much!
