Hi Seoul train,Just to add to this thread, fkl's advice was spot on. I applied for a student visa, whilst in the EE pool. I was honest and upfront about being in the EE pool. My student visa was approved in 1 week with no need for further information. Anyone using a lawyer that has advised withdrawing an EE profile on the basis that it reduces the chances of getting a student visa should probably look for a new lawyer.
Your post is logical and convincing. I have a specific query.....I got an admission from a B-School and I want to join the school this fall.....before getting admit.....I had already applied for express entry visa.....Since, express entry duration are unpredictable, I am applying for student visa .....can I use the same medical examination report for student visa processing which I used for express entry processing?
