For an employee who is lawfully in CPT status around 2 years, will it benefit to file H1B petition with consular processing? If its filed in regular request for COS there will be a chance for a H1B approval and denial of change in status sometimes and that would be still a better option.
or rather convert it into consular processing if there is an RFE related to maintenance of status or related? Any inputs will be appreciated.
Thank you
