I am on OPT Extension currently, and it wil expire on march 2015..My Employer will be filing my H1 as soon as the dates open. That will be April. It takes time to get H1 approval letters and all documents from USCIS. (I think around October)

Can I work till then even though my OPT is expired?

Or should I take addmission in college and work on CPT till the tile I get my final approval of H1.?

Any Suggestions ?

You can stay, but you can NOT work.

And forget CPT. It is not for work in some arbitrary job.

And no real university would give CPT to somebody just signing up. And signing up with a shady, fraud university would just kill your career in the US.

Again, forget CPT. Remove that acronym from your vocabulary. It would only result in you never getting an H1.

Forget CPT, wait till your H1 is approved.

If you go for CPT, you will kill your career in US forever.
