Overstaying J-1 visa

Good day!

So I came here in the US under J-1 internship visa and my visa expired June 01, 2011. I'm about to be finished with the 30-day grace period and I don't want to go home yet. I have the 2-yr HRR too so that adds up to my problems.

My question is, what are the visas I can adjust to while here in the US to be able to be legally present here. Please don't give me answers about getting married to a US citizen. I'm thinking about studying maybe?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

None. You can apply for the admission to a university but you will still have to go home for the F-1 visa. Here's the thing - you really do NOT want to overstay - DOS tracks it and come the next time you apply for a visa they will see your overstay and deny it.

Visas are granted outside the US. So you would have to apply at a US embassy. You can't adjust status to another visa. Any overstay will impact your visa application. Choose your next step carefully.

I guess I don't have any choice but to go home then.

Not neccessarily.

You also could apply for a waiver of the HHR:

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
