  • STEM extension denied, OPT expired 3months 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
    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?

      Message from reader: The only option he has is to take that I20 and leave the country and come inside USA. Thats the only option he has now. Even I am same par with him.
