    My Opt extension is ending on may 15, 2015.
    My Visa is expiring on June 15 , 2015.

    I should apply for H1 in april 2015.

    Case 1: What happens if my I get H1. Will my F1 status be extended till Sep 30th or do I need to step out of the country?

    Case 2: My H1 doesnt get picked. Can I start some college in May and stay in US or do I need to step out of the country to get a new F1 visa?

    Case 3: I dont get a decission till the visa expiry date? what happens?

      1. If your employer files an H-1B petition before your OPT expires, your status will be extended by “Cap Gap”, and you will even be able to continue working. Check out this video: http://vimeo.com/88637312.
      2. If your H-1B doesn’t get picked and you gain admission to another school for September and can get a new I-20, you can remain in the country in F-1 status.
      3. This year, receipt notices for H-1B’s were issued by the beginning of May. So you will at least know by then that your H-1B has been chosen. Regardless, you remain in status until a decision is made on the H-1B. If you don’t receive a receipt notice by June 15, based on advice from your attorney, you may need to leave the country.
