    I dont think you can go for new visa interview until your existing visa expires.

      If you go for a VISA interview.Two things can happen.
      1.You will be given a VISA so old VISA is scrapped and you will get a new one with name of new institution.
      2.Unlikely, but you will be denied and your VISA will be scrapped too.
      You dont have to apply for a new VISA.Just come back.Join the other institution and they will give you a new I-20.Understand that VISA is required only to enter US.Your legal status here is determined by a valid I-20 while you are on an F-1.
