New Student-Visa Data Paint Optimistic Picture For Law School Fall International Student Enrollments

Chronicle of Higher Education, New Student-Visa Data Paint an Optimistic Picture for Fall Enrollments:

As U.S. consulates around the world reopen, student-visa issuance is returning to pre-pandemic levels, bringing relief to American colleges that had feared yet another semester with many international students stranded overseas.

American consulates approved almost 117,000 F-1 student visas in May and June, or 93 percent of the number of student visas issued in the same two months in 2019, according to a Chronicle analysis of U.S. Department of State data. More than 143,000 F-1 visas were authorized from January to June of this year, 83 percent of the number issued during the same period two years ago.
