  • Extended review in OPT

    Hi i graduated in summer this year with masters in computer science. Filed for OPT in june at texas service center with receipt date 20 June 2013. with 90 days over it is still in initial review. I filed a service request and an expedite request as well during first week of sept. I received a reply yesterday that my application is under extended review and thats why the processing is delayed. It would be great if someone can share any information about what is this extended review and how long will it take. Also I took 20 Aug. as start date for the OPT but now since its so long will all these days after 20 Aug are counted towards the 90 days unemployment period?

      Oh thats sad.. But dont worry when the status changes from intial review to card production that would be your start date not the date you specified.

          It is sorry to hear that you had to wait for a long time and loose your OPT period. To benefit others, Can we create a new post on our facebook page with your experience so every one is aware of loosing OPT period, if things get delayed?

                    Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. From your experience, what worked and what didn't work for expediting your OPT card (eg: Info Pass, Calling USCIS, filling extra forms, etc)
