If my L1A extension is rejected how many days do I have to leave the country.  

Please stop asking such generic questions without providing much info about your case.

If you i94 has expired, you have to leave immediately.

Generally, if one receives a denial on a petition after the I-94 Card has expired, one is unlawfully present from the date of denial. One is required by law to leave straightaway - unlawful presence means one has no permission to be in the United States. Unlawful presence stops once a person has left the United States. Unlawful presence that does not exceed 180 days after departure from the U.S. does not subject one to a 3 yr or 10 yr bar to return. It must, however, be disclosed in the DS-160 form. It may be helpful to identify the reason for the unlawful presence - the denial of the petition. One who is unlawfully present in the U.S. for more than 180 days when they leave is subject to a 3 year bar to return and one who is unlawfully present for 1 year or more when they leave the U.S. is subject to a 10 year bar to return.
