I am applying to graduate schools in USA in EECS, after a few years being teacher in France. I am married since december, 2nd 2006, and I would like my wife to come with me in USA. She is currently completing a MBA in international trade, and she wants to work there. If I chose a F1 visa, she won't be able to work right ? So, what should I do ? is it true that with a J-1 visa (which would grant my wife the opportunity to work as a J-2) I would have to come back immediately after completing my PhD ? What are my other options ?
