UK Visa before Schengen Visa?

19 Nov 2012 Tian asked


I'm studying abroad in the UK in January but haven't gotten my CAS number to get my UK visa yet. In the meantime, I was wondering if it would be ok to get a Schengen Visa without getting my UK visa yet and just saying I will be arriving from the US.

I also don't really know which countries I will be going to yet so if I put in a timeline of January 1 to January 7, would my visa only be valid for 7 days or do I have to put in Jan 1 to like April 1? I will most likely be applying to the French Consul in Chicago
