If you do not work for the first  H1 sponsor, you will be subject to the lottery in the future.

They will know your intention of working in the USA. Hence you will need to give a coherent rational explanation for the Masters. It will help if your admission is to say the Ivy League for example.

Thank you for providing information.

What would be the better suggestion here as I am expecting both H1 petition approval(currently it is in progress) and F1 interview would be on same time lines. Shall I proceed to take F1 ?
