F1 rejected applying for F2 and then change status

Hi, I have applied for F1 visa in November 2012 but it got rejected. So Iam planning to apply for F2 visa as my husband is already in US on F1 visa. Will there be any problem in getting my Visa for F2? Once I get F2 status can I change it to H1 ?

F1 rejection as such may not matter much.

But getting F2 depends on on Yr and husband’s ability to demonstrate adequate funds to support living and other expenses of yours while in USA during entire duration of husband’s study period

ok thanks for the answer and we shall plan for the adequate funds!!!
