    Not sure if you've booked your flight yet Luke, but if you haven't, I've flown Gatwick - Chicago via Norwegian a few times and then had to make my way to Michigan! The price difference between Chicago and Detroit is definitely huge, so if you really want to spend as little as possible it is a great option. Not sure where in Michigan you have to get to, but there are a few possibilities to get there without the need to drive the gruelling 8 hour round trip or renting a car: Amtrak You can take the subway from the airport to Monroe (Blue line) From Monroe it's less than 10 minute walk to Union station Once at Union station you can catch the Amtrak Wolverine service which will take you to a number of cities in Michigan (I went to Ann Arbor) https://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak https://www.amtrak.com/content/dam/projects/dotcom/english/public/documents/timetables/Michigan-Services-Schedule-071618.pdf Southern Shore lines If you're heading somewhere on the west side of the state, or your fiance doesn't mind driving a distance, you can catch the service from Union Station. Unfortunately this only goes to Michigan City, IN. So you have to make your way to Michigan from there... https://www.mysouthshoreline.com/ Greyhound/Megabus Admittedly, I've only taken the Megabus into Chicago once (again, from Ann Arbor) but it was a pleasant enough experience for the price you pay! https://www.megabus.com Hopefully this helps you a little bit, sorry for the delay in my response if you've already booked your flight!
  2. Keep my fingers crossed, keep us updated when you know anything! 😊
  3. Thank you so much, we're both so thrilled! Hopefully not much longer before your approval, keeping my fingers crossed! ☺️
  4. What I meant to say is that most of these schools are accepting applications between now and end of May (some even up to first week of June). Wrong terminology used on my behalf. I'm looking at both integrative physiology and pharmacology. But I'm leaning more towards pharmacology, as physiology shares very similar content to my undergrad. However, I would be looking at attending a single institution, I don't really want to transfer credits from one place to a other.
  5. Oh dear I probably misread something! But California sounds equally lovely 😊
  6. Although I did not apply for a B2 and K1 simultaneously, I have previously applied for a B2. I provided documents such as: - Letter from university confirming that I was a paying student, and stating the duration of my course - Letter from my employer - again stating how many hours a week I work etc. - House contract for my house rental As others have mentioned, it might be a little more difficult with a pending K1 visa, but probably not impossible.
  7. I think the USCIS works in mysterious ways, and one can never know how long it will take! Your applications is still within the normal 6-8 months range, so hopefully you will receive something soon enough. It is possible that it is taking a little longer because of the K2, I guess there are additional checks associated that they have to carry out. Stay patient, your application will arrive when you least expect it! Keeping my fingers crossed for you ☺️ Also I see that you're moving to Charleston. Such a beautiful place, very jealous!
  8. Thank you so much, and congratulations to you too! It's such an overwhelming feeling ☺️ wish you guys all the best! Thank you very much! Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys! Hopefully everything arrives soon ☺️
  9. Thank you so much! Same goes to you guys, keep positive you're approval is on its way ❤️ Thanks you! Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys. ☺️ Yes, we received an email that there has been an update to our case, and once we checked the new website, we found that we were approved.
  10. Ecstatic* apparently I lost the ability to spell too. Haha
  11. Thank you so much! Waiting for your approval, hopefully it's coming any day now!!! ☺️
  12. My hands are still shaking, but I'm extatic to say that we have been approved!!!! Our approval came yesterday on the new website! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for each and everyone one for you still waiting for approval. Good luck in the rest of your journey ☺️
  13. Fantastic, I wasn't aware that I could do that! Thanks a lot. I'll write that down as another question to ask the admissions office!
  14. I'm not sure I fully understand the point about transferring credits. I will have finished my degree and graduated before I make my move to the US. So do you mean I can use my preexisting credits from my completed bachelor for a masters degree? I'm a little confused sorry!
  15. Thank you so much for your response, I'm glad to have found someone who was in the same situation as I am currently! I found a few programmes I like the sound of, so perhaps I'll follow your advise and contact some of them to enquire about all your aforementioned point. But it's beginning to look like I might either have to wait or attend some for of a community college in between. I didn't think of checking that, so I'll definitely plan on asking if there are any scholarships available for some of the programmes I looked at!
