        1st OPT->Aug 5 2013 to Aug 5th 2014
        STEM Extrension -> Aug 5th 2014 -> Jan 2015
        So you have two chances of Applying for H1
        1. April 2014
        2. April 2015
        It depends on your personal Interest
        Some people choose to apply first as If you apply for GC after H1 you will be one year ahead. Some people use max of OPT to exempt from Taxes.
