It's interesting. I don't know how people on those work visas will be able to get the time to be in the military as well, when they're required to maintain their jobs to keep their non-immigrant status.

I think a whole lot of "F" visa holders will be applying for the military now in order to get a fast-tracked green card (and get to practice their nursing once they graduate).

Regarding army requirements, you'd have to check the army website.

I thought you must have at least a GC to be in the military, no?

Well no, not any more. That's the whole point of this thread.

Hello,

How long do you think this program will last? I read on the linked website that it will last for one year but do you think it's possible they'll extend it indefinitely?
