Hello, thank you for this service you're providing, hope you can help. I came in 10/2013 on a F1 visa from Italy, with this tipe of visa I'm allowed to apply for curricular practical training (CPT) extension after I completed my studies, recently I found out that the school I attended failed to update my status with immigration so they have no record of my studies here in US, since immigration has no record they are saying I'm not entitled to apply for CPT, the school is trying to fix that but so far with no luck. I'm beginning to be a little worried, I paid close to $100.000 for my instruction and I have no money left. My questions are: Could I get from the school any financial compensation for the time I am spending here without working and without being able to keep my training current (I'm a pilot and not flying for long periods of time affect the performances)? This is the first time the school run in to this kind of problem and they don't know what the outcome with immigration could be. If I would not be able to apply for CPT can I ask the school a refund of at least the money I spent for training without even considering food and accommodation for the time I've been here? The licences I attained here are unusable in Europe without a good amount of flight hours due to different flight rules, I won't have any money to convert them any ways.
Thank you in advance for your help.
