I started studying on L2 (dependent on L1 spouse) from Sept 2011, but in Oct 2011 my husband's employer filed for his H1 visa so I applied for F1 visa and received its approval by Dec 2011.
Now I am studying on F1 for my spring semester. Is it true that I will not be able to work off-campus or do an internship in May 2012 since I have not studied on F1 for at least 2 semesters?
I have maintained my full time student status for both the semesters, shouldn't I be eligible for off-campus jobs or internship?
Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
