F1 OPT to H1 B visa issue

Hi,

 

I am on my F1 OPT visa status from April 14, 2014 to April 13, 2015. I need to apply for my H1B visa in the year 2015 since my F1 OPT is for one year and does not extend for another year because I don't come under STEM. 

 

My question is: Since my OPT period expires on April 13, 2015 and I would be applying for H1 B visa by April 1st, 2015, How am I going to be on status after April 13th, 2015? Is there any other alternative for me to be on status? 

 

Thank you!

You will be considered under cap gap if a H1B petition is filed before your OPT expires.
