Michael asks…

Can I just apply to a university just to be accepted?

So I want to apply to the college I want to attend. But I will be leaving for a 2 year mission. If I apply and say I choose the option to attend Fall 2014 semester, would it be a problem if I didn’t attend until after my mission? The university I want to attend is Utah State University. Can I just apply to be accepted and attend later on? Or would I have to attend Fall 2014? Please let me know.

admin answers:

Most universities will give only a one-year deferment of enrollment if they give deferments at all. You can ask the admissions office if they will give a two-year deferment, which they might, as in Utah your situation is not unique. Otherwise, you will need to apply during your mission and I hope that your mission will include facilities to make application not too burdensome.

If you need letters of recommendation for your university and will not be applying during high school, tell your counselor and teachers that you will need letters in two years and ask if you may request them to write them then. Give them stamped, properly addressed envelopes now and ask them if they would like you to give them summaries which will make it easier for them to remember you when they write the letters. Take the SAT/ACT now if your university requires it. Best wishes.

Paul asks…

Can a Diplomatic Mission refuse to even accept a visa application?

i will be grateful if some immigration lawyer or diplomat or someone with knowledge responds to this query in details- my job is in danger- so please help me.

I know that a Diplomatic Mission can choose not to give a visa. That is OK. But can they refuse to accept a visa application. My boss had to go to country X after attending a meeting in country Y. the embassy of X in India normally takes 4-5 days in giving a visa. But as my boss was travelling and had to also apply for a visa for country Y, we submitted the visa application 2 days before travelling. The embassy refused to accept the application. So i want to know can the embassy do that. I am sure that there is an international law somewhere that states that the everyone has the right to apply for a visa – the host country may choose to decline the application but not even accepting is not fair.

Is there is some sort of a directive from the UN or some sort of agreement betweent the various cou ntries to this effect??

can someone pl guide me urgently on this as my job is on the line of fire. So pleeeeeeease reply.

admin answers:

It’s entirely up to the country of that embassy to decide what its rules are for accepting or issuing visas. There’s no international law that gives people the right to apply for a visa. And for what it’s worth, most embassies have consular sections. Consulates can also have them
