      Your status of LPR appears to be no longer valid, despite the "validity"of plastic card. If you are still interested in becoming LPR, you'll have to start the application process from scratch.

        Green card holder can stay out of USA only for six monthe without permission and upto two years with permission or the period granted by the INS. IF the alien fails to return within time granted, GC will be cancelled and the alien has to apply again.
        In your case, you have to initiallized the process. You can apply for Student Visa but have to mention the previous status in the application.
