I'm a Spanish citizen who just finished his studies in Germany. Soon I'll be moving back to Spain, but I'm planning to spend some time in the US during this and next year visiting friends and applying to some universities.
My idea was to fly to the US in September with the Visa Waiver Program and stay less than 90 days, then go back to Spain for about 2 months and apply for a B2 Visa, and then stay again in the US for 5 to 6 months.
I spent 3 weeks in the states last March, and a month on August 2013. I'm worried about not being let in when I arrive in September because I was there not too long before, and/or not getting the Visa because of the same reason.
I'm not planning to do any kind of paid work and have never had problems with immigration or done anything illegal while in the US.
Should my plan work?
