Your best options for airport arrival is Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Chicago Midway International Airport, or South Bend International Airport. Keep in mind that you are allowed to arrive in the U.S. 30 days before your program start date. J-1 students may stay in the US 30 days after the program end date. F-1 students may stay 60 days after the program end date (this will be indicated on your DS-2019/I-20).
