I am currently on my STEM extension which ends this end of November. I have applied H1B this year under regular processing and haven't got a receipt yet.

1. Is there a chance still?
2. If not, apart from finding a CAP EXEMPT employer, and enrolling in PhD, what are my other options?
3. Is enrolling in an university which gives CPT from day 1 good? Does it have any pitfalls? Various online articles say it might be troublesome in future and also has restrictions like, one cannot work too far from the university.
4. Can you let me know of some universities in the SF Bay area which offer CPT from day 1?Should I join in Fall?
5.Can I apply for Green card directly?
