Visit a Finnish embassy abroad even if you use e-service
If you have submitted your application via e-service, you need to visit a Finnish embassy to verify your identity and to present the original copies of any supplements needed for the application.
An application cannot be processed until you have visited the embassy.
I read something on the University website about fingerprinting, but haven't found anything about that on the Finnish Immigration website.
Passport, photo and fingerprints
Take your passport and passport photo with you to the embassy. Make sure that your passport is valid for your entire stay in Finland or longer.
At the embassy, you will also be fingerprinted for a biometric residence permit card.
Does submitting everything in person to the Consulate mean that I have to go to New York City to drop off forms, or is that something these so-called "honorary Consulates" I find listed can do?
However, you should first bring your application with the attachments to the Consulate General in New York or Los Angeles or the Embassy of Finland, Washington D.C. depending on your jurisdiction. Applicants will also be fingerprinted at the time of filing the application.
3) In terms of showing necessary income, if I am applying to live for 2 years in Finland, do I need to show available funds for both years (e.g 12,000 Euros instead of 6,000?). Would my application be rejected if I don't?
4) Is there a plan B) if something happens where this doesn't get done in time? My sister suggested I try to get a temporary student visa, but I'm not sure if that's possible or not.

Not sure if this is because it's a debit card or for some other reason.
