Question about switching from H1B to F1. No not yet. I've a
Hi, I've a H1B with I-140 (received in Feb'20) under EB2 category. I got admit into a B-school few days back. My school will start in June'21. I'd like to now switch to F1 and would like to better understand my strategy for the same. Some of the concerns are-: a) Will I have challenges getting F1, given I've already expressed intent to migrate through EB2 application (and approval of I140)? b) Should I apply for change of status while in US or go to India for stamping? c) I don't want to leave my job till the time I have F1? Can I get a F1 and retain H1B visa at the same time? I was thinking when closer to school start, I'll leave job and begin on F1? I'm not sure how will that work, if possible?I also have questions around my visa situation post MBA. Once school is over, can I go back on H1B and retain my priority date? I'll probably have only 1 year of H1B left (out of 6 years) when I start job after MBA? Will that be a challenge in getting to the I-140 stage without me having to leave US or filing for new H1B? Can I somehow take advantage of 1 year OPT that I get?Overall, as per above, I'd like to understand a) the strategy for switching to F1 and b) post school, how should I plan to use my H1B and not get into a situation where I have to go through H1B lottery again?… read more
