    If your degree falls under STEM, you can definitely apply for OPT extension. But you first need to check with USCIS for the current OPT period. The period for which it is delayed, should not be counted under regular OPT period.

    Not sure.. but I have seen some applications go through Administrative processing and get delayed. I'm not sure what exactly goes.

    It looks like, you got your opt card after 6months of your start date, as it was delayed by some reason.

    If you come under STEM, then you can definitely apply for your OPT extension.
