  • Stem extension requested but start date is adjusted to oct-1st

    Hi all,
    My employer applied for H1-B this year and i got a RFE, my employer is in process of replying to USCIS. My initial OPT will be end on July-3rd.
    So, i have requested my school for OPT STEM Extension I-20 but it shows CAP-GAP period up to October 1st and my STEM extension start date is moved to Oct-1st instead of July-3rd.

    1) Can i apply with these recommendation or it needs to be corrected before
    2) Can i apply for STEM, will it harm my H1-B that is in process.
    3) I know that CAP-GAP will be terminated if H-1 withdraws/denies, if it happens what will be my status between July and October.
    4) If any one are familiar with this or in same situation, please let me know what to be done.

    Thanks All.
