From reading this forum for a while, I expect they would be just as helpful.

Making an unfounded suggestion that they would not be as helpful, though...

The OP had asked about coming from Europe. I have first hand experience with that. I do not have experience with someone coming from China or India and most likely would not have said much, other than mention of the USCIS website.

I don't think the OP gave an indication of race, did she?

Looks like you're trying to kick up some dust based on speculation. You should read through the forum and get the real picture.

So now I'm a racist?
The OP mentioned they were coming from Finland. I happened to mention that I knew of a Finnish club in Anchorage. If they were coming from China or India and I knew of a social group that reflect their heritage, I would've mentioned that, or even done a little bit of research to see what I could find for them.

There's been a lot of discussion, good. If it helps anyone, I am "pure Finnish blood and flesh".

What about a student visa? That may be a possibility if you are not able to get the other kinds. Also, you would have a chance to see if you like it.
