Student Visa Issues. and I am an international student from
My name is ***** ***** I am an international student from Tunisia. I just graduated from San Diego State University for my B.A. and applied for an OPT in December 12 2019. Unfortunately, I had to leave the U.S. on January 7, 2019 for a family emergency. My family lives in Riyadh and I still have a residency status here. Moreover, I didn't receive the I-765 receipt notice from USCIS that has my case number ***** that was supposed to be sent within one month of my application (my roommate still keeps my mail and she's the one regularly checking it). I still am in Riyad and my case is still pending; however, my visa has expired (I have a valid I-20 though). I have changed my mind about the OPT as I applied for a PhD program and I was recently admitted. I would like to go back to the U.S. to attend a Preview Program of the PhD and familiarize myself with the university and the professors. This event is taking place on March 17. I also want to make my way back because I would like to attend my graduation ceremony taking place in mid May. My question is regarding what's the safest way to guarantee entrance to the US within the timeframe I mentioned? Should I re-apply for another student visa, go back to the U.S. and wait for my OPT application's result, then terminate my I-20? Or should I just try to let uSCIS know now that I changed my mind and ask the international student center advisor to let them know that I'd like to terminate my I-20, then apply for a tourist visa? I appreciate your time and effort and thank you. … read more

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
