Poland's National Visa (student) - how easy is it to get rejected?

To give you a little background, I'm from the US and I just applied recently for a National Visa to study in Poland in Warsaw. I handed in all the correct documents and now I'm waiting. From your experiences, how easy is it to get rejected? I hear stories about rejection but almost all come from kids from countries in Africa and the Middle East. I'm not trying to imply anything but obviously there's a little more concern about that area.

Basically I just want to ask, if anyone has gone through this process and if they got their visa. I'm just asking because I'm paranoid haha. I need this visa to graduate from school in America so you guys can see where the apprehension comes in.

It should also be noted that I was a student at Jagiellonian last summer for one month and the consulate knows that, if that matters. Anyway all input good news or bad is welcome.

Thank you

What school in America requires a Polish visa to graduate ?
What curriculum are you on that you would need a Polish visa to graduate ?
Just asking..........

I don't need the actual Visa to graduate haha. I'm sorry I should've been more specific. I'm a history major specifying in Eastern Europe. My minor is the Polish language. Unfortunately I need 18 credits of polish but my school only offers 12. I took the class at Jagiellonian last year and 3 semesters at my school but I still need 3 credits. I can only get the remaining credits by going to school in Poland. My advisors and school will not make any acceptions regarding credit. So I need the visa because I need the classes in Poland. I also need eastern european electives I can only really find in Poland.

Sucks but I chose that major

Some how this doesn't sound right to me.
What college or university in the U.S. requires you to go abroad to obtain a degree in European History ?
This is the first I have heard of such a thing.

I'm failing to see what is hard to comprehend. The school does not require I go over to Europe to do anything. However, I chose a minor in a language that my school only offers 4 semesters in. I need 6 more to graduate. Since I need 18 credits in Polish and the school offers 12 I need to go to Polish classes in Poland since that is simply the most convenient and worthwhile thing to do.

It seems very weird that they'd let you do that. You'd think they'd offer an independent study for the semesters they don't offer (if a willing instructor can be found). That's what I did when I needed something more advanced than first year Polish. But in my case the instructors were happy to play along as they got tired of just first year students.

I can fully understand that you might not want to do that and would _rather_ come to Poland for the classes, but it's odd that that's your only choice.

Ya it's rediculous. Our Polish teacher is top notch and is willing to do what you just said. However, the school mandates atleast 6 kids per class with no acceptions and no independant studies( they need their money).This would be my second time going to Poland for a language course.

no acceptions

exceptions

independant studies

independent

In my case, the classes were on my schedule and I paid for them (at the usual rates) so they'd be getting more money from you doing that than you doing the classes in Poland.

Are they by any chance pressuring you into taking classes that they do offer?

Haha thanks. Usually I don't make those mistakes. My apologies.

My school won't offer independent language courses. They told me it's a waste to only have 1-4 kids in a class trying to learn a language. Basically, a total mess.

They're not really pressuring me into anything. It's hard to explain but my college tends to have more of a "we don't give a sh*t" attitude.
