H-1B to F-1 change of status


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I got my PhD in EE in 2011. I started working for a company on an OPT. Starting from October 2012, I have been on a H-1B visa. Then my company laid me off at the end of May 2013. I enrolled at a university to begin my MBA starting from Fall 2013. As the program runs on a quarter system, the start date of the program was only two days ago with my I-20 being approved only two weeks prior to that. I have paid the SEVIS fee and filed the application for a COS. However, I am having second thoughts that it is better to defer my admission to later and go back to my home country rather than facing the prospect of a denial of my request for COS. Any advice on what my chances are? Thanks.
