Apprecitate your help me here with my issue..
I graduated with M.S., Finished OPT and got another admission in college (that I-20 is valid till 2007)
I did internship with a compay starting from April 2005 to June 2005, during that period they applied for my H1 in (MS quota) which got approved on May 20th 2005.
Now probelm is I just realized yesterday that while filing for my H1 they did a mistake and applied as change of status in India. So on approval my papers where mailed to Mumbai consulate. Luckily I checked with my school (where I stopped going after 20th May) my status is still on F1 and they have not notifed INS yet. In school there was summer vacation till 26th Septemeber so I am in valid status till now.
Now untill I get my H1 stamped I can't work for my company. I am going to India in November for which I have already taken appointment for Visa stamping. So when I go to India will I have any probelm for stapmping?
My questions are:
1) shall I file for amendmant and change of status here before I go to India.
2) Or I go to India asap so I don't have to maintain my F1 status and (pay any fees) b/c my H1 got approved back in May...
3) Shall I delay my trip to India (which is very hard b/c of family issues) and wait for few months after change of status here (so i get new approval with I-94)
Please help me with my questions....It is very critical and time sensitive..Thank you all..
