QUESITON: So, you are saying I might be granted entry as my OPT will be valid and at the same time I might having risk of denying my entry. so I understand that there is no standard and a gun shot answer for my situation. am I right ?
ANSWER: Correct. You are eligible to enter and you are eligible to continue the STEM extension, but it is not a guarantee. Again, however,r keep in mind that the risks are very small. I just have to tell you that it is possible. Doesn't mean it is a probably outcome. Unfortunately, I can't give you a percentage.
QUESTION: I am worried about this as I cannot make a decision based on uncertainty. but I do appreciate your answer on this.
ANSWER: I reiterate that the risks are very small. Again, it is possible, but not probable.
QUESTION: Do you know if I can really Cancel the generated I-20 and ask international office of my school to regenerate I-20 on December 2013 ? (after I come back to U.S)
ANSWER: Only if you have a previous I-20 that remains valid. You can't enter the US without a valid I-20.
QUESITON: will that be a problem if I apply for STEM Extension in USICS after re-generating my Extension I-20?
ANSWER: No problem here, as long as it can be re-issued. But remember that you have to have a valid I-20 when you return to the US.
If I were you, unless there is an emergency situation that required me to travel during this time, and I knew I could avoid complicated issues by not traveling until all of my applications are approved, I would do that.
I highly recommend that you visit with an immigration attorney in your area. They can look over all of your documents and guide you as to what to do next. I am not allowed to tell you what to do. I only am allowed to give you general information about the situation you describe.
