Hi,
I am on F-1 OPT valid till August 6th, 2016
My H1B application got picked in the lottery a few days back. 
I am eligible for STEM extension. 

I am working in a Consultancy - Vendor - Client model as Build & Release Engineer. 
My degree is Masters in Industrial Engineering. 

 

1)Should I still apply for STEM extension to be on the safe side? 

2) In case of RFE to prove how Field of Study is related to Employment, what are the steps to follow? 

 

Please let me know. 

I appreciate your help. 

Thank you

1.Yes but your H1 is  approved with COS then your OPT becomes invalid

2.Truth, you need to talk to your attorney about this.
