Previous OPT to Day 1 CPT conversion

Recommended Posts


I am currently on F-1 OPT, my OPT expires end of May 2018, I am currently working for a company in US and my company has applied for my H-1B, I have not heard back yet on my H-1B lottery result yet, and this is my last chance for H-1B. So, I am exploring options for Day 1 CPT work and education, and would appreciate your inputs on the following questions:

1. Is it legit to go for Day 1 CPT work and education immediately after end of OPT and how many hours can I work for my current employer?

2. Does it raise chances for RFE when applying for H-1B next year or after that?

3. How long can I stay in the US without getting new F-1 visa stamped and is there extra/difficult questioning by the consular officers when getting the visa stamped and when entering the US again?

No real university gives out CPT from day one. Signing up with a fraud institution would result in never getting an H1.
