Re: The process of becoming a legal immigrant is difficult
Best way to go is to get a green card is to get your masters and then pray for a work visa. If you are one of the lucky ones and get it then your job can file for the green card papers, which usually takes about a year to process if you have a masters. If you are working with an undergrad it can take 3-6 years. Tell your boy its all about connections, but if he's trying to stay he needs to put the work in.
