I am currently studying abroad in a masters program in Spain (under a tourist visa as the program duration was under 90 days and I can legally be allowed in the Schengen area for up to 90 days without a student visa).

However, I have decided to stay in the masters program here from which would last from January 10th to June 15th.

I have an appointment with the Spanish Consulate in the States on Jan. 3rd, but have to be back in Spain by the 10th...

Is it possible to leave my passport with the Spanish Consulate, fly to Spain under an emergency U.S. passport, and then have my parents mail my passport when the visa is processed?

Or how can I go about staying in Europe without breaking the 90/180 day rule?

For the record, these are my dates in the Schengen area:

June 4th-7th
Sept. 25th-Oct. 7th
Oct. 9th-Nov. 4th
Nov 6th-Dec. 16th
Dec. 18th-Dec. 22nd

AND possibly
Jan. 8th-June 15th (with some U.K. breaks in between)

That is exactly how secondary passports are often used. If you wish to stay in Spain over 90 days within a 180 days period, you will need a student visa, or a permanent residence in Spain.
