This is crazy. I hope they do something about it at least for students who have advanced degrees from US colleges. Not because they are smarter, but because they are already here and have contributed a lot of $$ to US schools.

Default If H1 approved, will OPT cancel

Hi,
I have applied for H1 this year and my OPT is valid for next 29 months.
I am working for A with OPT. Now when B has filed my H1B and if it gets approved in Oct 2008, will I be able to continue to work for A for some more time using my OPT status. I dont have immediate plans to work for B on H1 B and I would probably join them in May 2009, .
Will H1 B approval from a DIFFERENT company have any effect on MY OPT status. I know sometimes people get 2 H1bs from two companies.

Thanks a lot in advance,
sri.

Default WILL IT BE A PROBLEM TO ME IN GETTING a H1B bcoz of the COMPLETION OF M.S IN 1 YEAR?

IF I COMPLETE MY M.S. IN 1 YEAR AT A U.S. UNIVERSITY
AND THEN IF FILE A H-1B THROUGH A CONSULTANCY

WILL COMPLETION OF MY M.S. IN 1 YEAR BECOME A PROBLEM FOR GETTING A H-1B IN THE MASTERS (M.S.) QUOTA OF 20,000?

BCOZ SOME OF MY FRIENDS TOLD ME THAT IT IS NOT GUD TO COMPLETE M.S. WITHIN 1 YEAR OR IN EXACTLY 1 YEAR, LATER IT BECOMES A PROBLEM FOR GETTING A H-1B THROUGH M.S. QUOTA.( THEY SAID THEN I WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH GENERAL 65,000 QUOTA AND WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR 20,000 M.S. QUOTA, if m.s. is completed in 1 year)

IS IT TRUE, IS THERE ANY SUCH IMIGRATION RULE DURING H-1B FILING


please clear my doubt as soon as possible
my mail id is pvamsivikram@gmail.com

Default Exempt some students

They should "at least" exempt the students graduating with PhD degree. Also extend the exemption to the Master students graduating from top ranked universities (univ list similar to HSMP). This will bring down some demand for H1B visa numbers for advanced degree.

Students,

Please make sure your EAD doesnt start before October 2008. That way, you will have 2 complete chances of getting H1 if things wont change even after presidential elections.

General Rule of thumb is "Graduate in august put start date as October 1st for your OPT"

This is not easy coz when we graduated in 2000-2001 area we didnt had to choose some date just bcoz the visa ia not available. We used to worry more about getting a good job than this visa and we used graduate when coursework & thesis are complete. I think things have changed drastically.

Hope this helps.
