              Yes, I did Try but in vain.
              Questions are as follows:
              a. Official Transcript and its’ evaluation (must be original) The agency must be a member of www.NACES.org , www.AACRAO.org , or www.NAFSA.org (General report for High School, Detailed or Course-By-Course Report with GPA for college or university. Graduate students must have an equivalent of a Bachelor’s degree in the US to qualify verified by a specified agency) - IS THIS APPLICABLE TO H4 JOINERS TOO? IF YES, HAVE ANYONE DOEN THIS COULD YOU WALK ME THROUGH THE STEPS, PLEASE.

              b. Bank Statement ($22,500) (must be original) - IN THIS CASE, LIKE OTHER INSTITUTIONS I KNOW OF, WOULD H1B PAY STUBS, COMPANY LETTER OF EMPLOYMENT /OR INCOME CERTIFICATE WORK??

              These are the questions I would like to clarify.
              If anyone has done this before or if you know of any affordable accredited universities in NJ/NY area with easy admission formalities, please feel free to let me know.

              Thank you

                I'm on Initial OPT, can I work for non e-verify company.
                I'm working for non e-verified company 40hrs/ week and also an e-verified company as 20 hours/week, doing both jobs at the same, doesn't it effect me in anyway.

                  always good to work for paid jobs so 17 months extension will not have RFE. My friend recently denied extension because he was working with his professor

                          i think it should be based on location. I am in WA and getting paid 12/HR from my employee on bench

                            This is scary. Was he working 20 hours/ week after graduating with his professor? That should not be considered as unemployment. Was his work in a lab or a research project in the STEM field? I need more details please!

                              Was he working in a lab in the university for 20 hours a week?

                                I'm on OPT extension still searching for job and I've 1.5 months to lapse my unemployment period.
                                I heard that you can stop your OPT unemployment clock by 2 means:
                                1) Join a consultancy full time and get enrolled as an employee
                                2) Work as a volunteer for non-profit org in the same field as your studies.

                                My question is (considering that I'm in 24 month extension period)
                                a) if you work for any employer but unpaid - will that count for unemployment?
                                b) if you work for 20 hours/less in a week - will that count for unemployment?

                                Pl help clarifying these questions as it'll clarify my confusion.

                                Thanks.
