    Exclamation F1 about to lose status and Re-entry

    Hello everyone!

    I am an F1 student with 2 semesters of courses still left in my degree. I am about to go out of status because I dropped 1 course without approval from the DSO.
    I am not filing for a reinstatement because I was told I don't have a strong case.

    1. Can I get a new I-20 and re-enter the US from Mexico? Or do I need a new F1 visa from a Consulate first?
    2. How long do I have after termination of my status to leave the country? Am I allowed to wait until I get a new I-20?

    My current F1 Visa was issued till 2021 and I think the reason for my termination will be "Unauthorized Drop Below Full Course".

    Thank you for your help!
