On you suggestion of transferring to F1, any idea how long does the change of status currently takes?  Or any other suggestions for maintaining status? 

It takes months to get admission to a college, so an F1 is out of the question.

I'm in a very unfortunate situation, I was laid off from my job today, I'm currently on Cap-Exempt H1-B, looking to see my options here to stay in status before 60 days grace period ends. 

Sorry   to hear that.. me too.. its cruel man.. we should have gone to Canada or Australia on work permit, we would have got PR in a couple of years, before anyone can lay us off.. or better start our own business or whatever...

The 60 day grace period starts when the person is laid off.

Thank you for your reply, can I trouble you with a question?

Can I stay here for more than 60 days and keep looking for jobs? and when I find one, I can then go back to India and get H1-b stamped..I know I can't stay for more than 180 days, but checking for 60 day period.
