    STEM extension denied, OPT expired 3 months back
    Hi ,I came to USA in dec 2009 on a student visa to a ABC University. I finished my Masters in May 2012 and applied for OPT.
    My OPT was going to expire June 24th 2013 and so I applied for STEM extension in March last week so that USCIS recieved my packet on April 1,2013. June 3, 2013 I got a letter stating RFE for complete employment history right from day 1 of my OPT approval.
    My employer decided to take the help of an attorney for the filing of RFE where the attorney addressed with my timesheets, training schedule, roles learnt, certification I recieved and also the pay stub when I started
    working. The packet was recieved by USCIS on AUG 16,2013 and sept 4th 2013, it was updated on the USCIS website that a denial notice was sent, which I have not recieved yet. After reading a few blogs etc I came to know about
    something called grace period and as per them I am out of status as the grace period completed 60 days after my OPT expiry (i.e Aug 24th 2013) which I was totally unaware of before.I have a valid visa till Nov 2014. I have never violated the F1 status ever before. I applied to a new school ([B] university) immediately and they said I would be getting a new I-20 soon. What are the chances I ll re-enter without a problem and within 2-3days?

    Case 1:- My OPT is going to finish on this may 10th 2016, I don't have extension as i am from MBA i will have only 1 year OPT and i am not eligible for extension. In this case i have applied for H1 but result was not yet reveled so i am thinking to join in any coll and want to do MS. As i am done with my OPT previously do i get OPT again ?

    Case 2:- Do i also get extension as i havent taken it previously.

    CASE 3:- I came with bridge cource i.e 1 year in india and 1 year in abroad program so for this no need to write any GRE or TOFEL so when i am appling for new university do they ask any GRE or ielts score. As i dont have i need to write any exam here.

    Kindly let me know your opnions..

I still have a valid visa till end of next year. I am trying to get an admission into a univ now and probably I will get an I-20 next week. What are my options for legal stay in USA? I am terrified . please help me. No one is telling me my options clearly. Anyone who had this problem or know abt this prob, please take time and respond, I will be so grateful to you. Pls
    Hi, Can you please help me provide the name of the school you took admission into? I have the same issue and wanted a list of universities that I can apply in to save my status. Please let me know. Thanks!

    Hi,

    My name is Juan and I wanted to ask you for an advice on my OPT situation. I am an Electrical Engineer, I graduated from the University of Puerto Rico on Master's in Electrical Engineering. I have been working for a year in Puerto Rico under my OPT, which expired on June 12th. I sent all the documents for the OPT extension in April of this year, a month ago I received a RFE which I filled with all the information they asked me about. Yesterday I checked the status and it says that my I-765 has been denied and they will send me a letter with all the information.

    My situation right now is that i'm working on the company. Before receiving the denial, I was planning to return to get a PhD degree on August and I only need to work for 3 weeks more before starting the university. I know that i'm inside the 60-day grace period and I could ask for an appeal caller MTR. However, I'm not sure if i'm able to keep working if I do the appeal work. If I cannot keep working, since when it is supposed I should quit on the company?. Please help me, I'm worried about screwing my Visa when I renew it next year.

    Thank you so much for your help

    Did you filled I-983?

    If it is denied, u can apply for mtr but u cant keep working during the mtr process. As you want to go back to school soon, i would suggest stop working asap or when u receive the letter. You dont want to jeapordize your visa status for just a few days of work so stop it asap.
