I got my OPT denial, you mean motion..? I'm a graduate from
I'm a graduate from the University of New Haven-Connecticut and I graduated with Masters Degrees in Engineering and Operations Management.I attended the University's Optional Practical Training (OPT) workshop. The workshop was mandatory for international students like me on an F1 Visa to obtain OPT endorsement from the University's International Services Office(ISO). I had enrolled into three challenging courses in the last semester that included two projects. Due to this tough schedule, I could not schedule to attend this workshop earlier. The ISO gave me tips on filling out the I-765 form, with the instruction to mail all the supporting documents including the I-765 to the Texas Service Center. I followed that instruction and proceeded to fill out my I-765 form with all supporting documents like my past I-20s, I-94, passport etc and submitted all my forms to ISO, After verifying my documents i got a mail from ISO that my i20 was ready. So i had an appointment with adviser at ISO in which he explained me that i should mail this application by April 30th 2017. So i have applied for pre OPT and my i20 was created on March 31st 2017 and i should send my application before April 30th 2017, which i failed to send on time(as i thought the 30 days time is from my end date of program May 31st 2017 and i was not aware of my errors at that point of time), they received my application on May 15th 2017. I received an update on the 7th of August indicating that my Employment authorization was denied and received a mail on the 14th August 2017 DENYING MY CASE DUE TO "your application was not delivered until May 15th which is past the expiration date of the I-20 which has resulted in denial of your OPT request". This decision could jeopardize my career. Could you please help me out from this. … read more
