    Stem extension denied

    Hi, I got an RFE asking complete employment history for OPT STEM extension on June 3rd 2013 and opt expired June 24th 2013. My attorney addressed the RFE on my behalf with all the timesheets, certificates received during the 12months and my pay stubs in august. I came to know about STEM denial 3days back and I do not know the reason yet. I was unaware of the 60days grace period before my denial status. My DSO said my SEVIS is complete, what does that mean? 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

    Hello Sir,
    Have you received your Denial letter. Can you tell me what it states. Were you working as an unpaid intern in some consulting firm. Can you explain your employment history. So I could help you out

    As your sevis is complete, u hv to take a new admission n also to activate the new sevis, you have to go out of US and come back

    If your extension is denied, you have 60 days from your denial date to do the following:
    1. Join a school and get a new I20 issued. Your classes do not have to start in that 60 day peroid, but can start within 5 months from the day your 60 day peroid ends.
    2. You can file for mtr, which is basically a motion to reconsider. Not sure, how that works though.
    Again, I am not an attorney, so please try to confirm with your attorney.

    Please make sure to come back and update. Cheers.

    Can we apply for change of status after OPT extension denied?

    Hello sir,
    I understand we'll have 60 days after OPT extension denied. During that time, can we apply for change of status (to F2)?
    I will sincerely appreciate your response on this.
    Many thanks,

    find a univ which alows you to work on cpt right from first day. with that option u can still continue working n go for h1b next year. if u browse through the page search for related posts and u can find some univ name as i am not sure abot those names.
