OPT expiration and CAP-GAP
Hi All,

My OPT expires on March 20th 2012. According to USCIS rules, I am on valid F-1 status 2 months after OPT expiration. "nonimmigrant F1 students on post-completion OPT maintain valid F1 status until the expiration of the OPT period and the subsequent 60-day departure preparation period".

Is it possible for me to take advantage to cap-gap after expiration of OPT as I will still be on valid status? Can I quit work for 10 days after my OPT expiration and start working again on April 1st after a employer files my H-1?

Please advise.
