Default Moving to the US

When I graduate, I plan on moving to the US and going to university down there somewhere; probably Virginia/DC, Arkansas or New York.

How much hassle is there changing citizenships or whatever you do to become a resident of another country? Any info will be appreciated? can you be a resident of Canada and the US at the same time?

You need a Visa and all the crap. You need also to be cleared of any stuff you have with Canada. It's not easy, but doable...and why? You've been ranting bloody times!!! Now, you're going over there!

Ranting? Visa? Huh?

Edit: I knew I'd get some anti-US posts. Put it this way -- I'm not fond of any of the Canadian provinces besides Quebec and Alberta.

The only (correct me?) university in Newfoundland is Memorial University of Newfoundland, which I know lots of people that have went and hated it. College of the North Atlantic, same thing. The only city that's any good is St. John's, with a population of 100,000 ish people. Smaller than Cambridge, ON, which someone from Cambridge who came here called a "small city". I'm a city person, by the way.

Edit 2: http://usembassy.state.gov/ Under the Americas, wtf? The three northern provinces (NWT, Nunavut and Yukon) have offices yet none in Atlantic Canada? There goes my dream of getting a Visa. Travel to Montreal, Quebec or Toronto, Ontario??? Hmm... http://canada.usembassy.gov/

Edit 3: http://canada.usembassy.gov/content/...ulates#halifax There's one in Halifax. Oh joy, 6+ hours to get out of Newfoundland, a long ferry ride and another few hours to Halifax. Come on. The Northwest Territories gets one and Newfoundland doesn't?

United States - Canada Relations

The relationship between the United States and Canada is probably the closest and most extensive in the world. It is reflected in the staggering volume of bilateral trade--the equivalent of $1.4 billion a day in goods, services, and investment income--and people, more than 100 million crossings of the U.S.-Canadian border every year. In fields ranging from law enforcement cooperation to environmental cooperation to free trade, the two countries work closely on multiple levels from federal to local. In addition to their close bilateral ties, Canada and the U.S. work closely through multilateral fora.

If the relationship between the US and Canada is so strong, why leave out Newfoundland & Labrador?

Why are members so far querying LGG's intention to the US?, is it a "them & us" situation?, sometimes I see that US citizens are a little guarded about Canadians moving across the border to take up residence, I have friends in Canada who thought of moving, & they found a fair amount of hostility from potential neighbours when looking round houses when they remarked where they were from, eventually they gave up & moved to New Zealand where they were welcomed with open arms.

Not all American's are bad, some are just mis-understood...

Us Americans are just stereotyped to be retarded inconsiderate fools...

Anyway, I don't know what you're grades are like, but the University of Buffalo by me is a great school. Not really for the geniuses, but if you've got mid to low 90's you may be able to get money there. You probably need at least 80's to get in in most cases (not including sports).
