    Laid off During STEM OPT is still in process?

    I am currently working at a firm through which I had applied for my Stem-Opt back in mid June. However, I will be leaving the company on 15th of August during which I will still not have my EAD card in hand as the application is still processing. So, I will definitely be unemployed for a few days. During this period am I allowed to use my remaining Standard OPT unemployment days even if I haven't received my Stem-OPT card? Please let me know if I can use it or else what other option do I have.

    I would recommend against quitting with nothing lined up (I think you'll only put more of a burden on yourself with the stress of trying to get another job, although if you're willing to wait the job market out then maybe you'll be fine), but maybe have some good contacts to leverage?
