    Potentially out of F-1 status, what are my chances of F-1 visa renewal?

    Hi, I need some advices regarding an urgent matter.

    After my OPT start date, I failed to report employment details to my school within 10 days. However, my SEVIS was still in 'active' status so the school DSO was able to update the details and issue me a new I-20.

    But, the school warned me that I may be violating my f-1 status and potentially accruing towards 180 days of unlawful presence. In order to avoid the 3 year bar entry, I'm trying to leave and re-enter the states. But my f-1 visa stamp was expired a few months ago so I need to reapply in my home country.

    Considering the fact that my SEVIS is still active, I-94 effective date still shows as D/S, and I received a new I-20 with updated employer information, what are my chances of getting my F-1 application rejected by the U.S consulate?

    Getting you F1 visa renewed just for OPT or STEM (basically after degree completion), the chances are pretty grim.
