            I dont think so. You need to complete your MS Project before the end of ur 12 month opt

              If you are a Masters student, still pending on your Masters Thesis, or Project defence, you are still eligible for OPT STEM extension. Best example: myself. I have my Masters project pending as of my 1st opt end date i.e Feb 5th. and i had applied for opt stem on feb 1st with my current official scool transcript and a letter from your grad/int scool stating that this student is pending with his project defence... and is in good standing .. his majors is so soo.. in place of your diploma. this should do your work. me sent feb 1st, opt stem approved april 25th.
