          Is Day 1 CPT still an option after the expiration of STEM OPT? I have heard people saying USCIS has abolished Day 1 CPT and it's not a good idea to enroll in such and could cause a problem during H1B. I, however, could not find any resources online regarding this news and would like to confirm how far this is true.

                            There are several universities in the United States that offer Curricular Practical Training (CPT) from day one. However, it is important to note that CPT policies may vary among universities and programs. Therefore, it is advisable for students to thoroughly research and confirm the CPT options available at their preferred universities before making any decisions.
