if this is approved, do I still have to wait until October?

If I have it after my opt expires, can I still work?

Thank you for your help.
the h1 processing time is normal as other h1b .. premium would take about 15 days ..
if it approved your start date will be start date specified in the application ( you dont have to wait till oct1 )
