  • OPT Denied, what are my options now?

    I applied for OPT by anticipating that I will complete my research before graduation date and I received my OPT before graduation. But I was unable to complete research on time, that led my SEVIS terminated. I applied for cancellation of my OPT 20 days before my OPT start date and my OPT card was destroyed by USCIS after my OPT start date. Also I applied for re-in-statement of SEVIS and It got approved after 8 months. Mean time I did couple of courses extra and i continued school with second masters. I graduated with first masters in Spring 2013 and second masters in Fall 2013. When i applied for my OPT with second masters degree, i got denial. The reason for denial he wrote as, "one of my I-20 shows that I was granted OPT once in 2012. Therefore the record shows that you have been granted 12 months of maaximum OPT. Therefore, your application is denied."

    My F1 visa expired in Aug 2012.
    1. What are my MRT chances to get OPT approved?
    2. What are my present options to be in status?
    3. Does rejection of OPT leeds to termination of current SEVIS?

          well, the thing is if ur sevis is active now, I wud suggest join school is the only option so tht u r on status.And see if u can find an employer to file H1 this year for u. but if ur sevis is terminated, i guess u need a good attorney asap. By reading ur case I just feel u r still in a good place with an active sevis rather than a completed or terminated one.
          2. There are really strong chances ur MTR may be denied since an OPT was issued earlier, but we nver know sometimes luck may be on ur side. But going back to school is the safest since u dont even have ur F1 status..
