    what did you tell the consular officer on your application or interview about how long you wanted to stay in the US? More and more INS officials are contacting the embassy when someone requests an extension to see what that person wrote on their application....if you wrote "two weeks" to visit some long,lost aunt and now want to stay not only six months, but more, well, what happened to that great job you claimed you had? Or that university that you had to return to?
    IN the current climate, extensions are placed under more of a microscopre than before. And I promise you that if (or when) you apply for another tourist visa, the consular officer will wonder why you said "two weeks visit" (or whatever) and then decided to stay 6 months to year.
