    Things to think about

    International student is expensive you have OPT which as you mentioned is only got 12 months and you must get a job with OPT quickly when graduating otherwise you can't use it.

    Depending on where you was born will depend on how long you have to wait for immigrant visa. Currently if born in India you have a 10 year wait and if staying in the US you will have to maintain legal status somehow which may be difficult
