I am on F1 visa now. The most important thing is the finances + prayers! Muntik na ako ma-deny dahil sa finances. If you have a sponsor, make sure you have the Form I-134 (Affidavit of Support) completed with all the evidence of finances attached.
It took the Visa officer more than 15 minutes before she said yes. She even excused herself and consulted her colleauge about my situation. Since I have a B1/B2 visa din, she said she has no choice but to grant me a visa because I can fly to the U.S. even if she will deny me with F1 visa.
When she excused herself and consulted her colleague, wala akong ibang ginawa kundi magdasal. Halos lahat ng naghihintay sa upuan sa embassy nakatingin sakin at inaabangan ang result. Nagngitian sila nong sinabi ng officer na YES.

did the VO cancel your B1/B2 visa nung binigyan ka nya ng student visa?

you can change your status while you are in the US. But I think there is a time frame from the date you arrived to a certain date before you can change your status. The problem with changing of status, though, is that you may have a hard time going out and in of the country, coz technically you don't have the actual visa but a legal document saying that you are now on F1 visa. If you leave the country and enter again, you may need to have a consular interview done at a US Embassy so you can have the actual visa. Which is kind of risky.
(I may be wrong on this one, but I just applied the rules given to non-immigrant applicants)

dude, hindi yan pwd gawin. bawal yan to change status as a toruits then to a student. pwd ka maghanap ng school mo don then pag natanggap ka, hingi ka ng letter of acceptance sa kanila then babalik ka sa pinas for your visa. show money and the letter of acceptance from the school. un ang ginawa ko kaya may F-1 visa ako. pinagawa ko *** visa ko kaya wala ako hassle. documents lang ang required the rest sila na bahala. http://bit.ly/cmnHiZ
