Default Wrong Degree in H1B Petition - Going for stamping

Hi,

This is regarding my H1B VISA application. I came to US in 2007 as a student of MBA and was working with my employer since then on CPT. My H1B petition was filed under Student Quota in Apr 2009 and was approved. I am going to India for my H1 stamping when I got I-129 from my employer. My highest education mentioned by my employer is MS - Computer Science from the University, while I pursued MBA - Management. Following are my questions:

Is it OK to go for H1B stamping with this I-129?
What are the possible options to correct it?
Will this be a problem for my Green Card processing?

Please let me know if any further details are required from my side.

Most of these employers have a standard templates for H1 application and all they do is FIND & REPLACE to modify it to suit each individual applicant. In my case the person who was modifying it for me changed my Name in most places except one place where it was still saying the name of some other person. So the application was like this

This is visa petition for Mr XXX ..............
Mr XXX has degree in MS Comp Sci and Mr ABC has finished his undergraduate in .....

I had not seen this till the day I was leaving for Canada for my stamping & I panicked but then there was not much I could do so I decided to take a chance and the VO did not ask me for the petition and even if he has I am not sure how keenly he would have read it. It was a genune oversight not any falsification and definately I was not to be held responsible. But in your case since it is degree issue it is better to talk to a lawyer though statistically VO does not have time to read through the visa peition its just too long for the time they have allocated for the interview.

Default Do not go for stamping, if avoidable.

Please do not go for stamping if it can be avoided, as embassies are very frequently giving form 221(g) for additional administrative processing which may take few weeks to several months.
