a student F1-visa. Typically if you have an I-20 with aid although is not the university you want to attend,it's best advised to
appear for the F-1visa with that particular I-20.

for that particular graduate school. The student then can come to the US on that particular F1-visa
and once they enter US should report to the graduate school.
