  • H1B-F1 Clash

    Hi all,

    The current company with which am working now in India is planning
    to get an H1B for me. I have also simultaneously applied for U.S Universities for fall 2007 and am awaiting results now.Assuming that the normal H1B processing time is around 5-6 months, during March my status of H1B visa would be "in process".

    So my doubt is,
    1)if I get an admit from any of the universities during that time,
    will being "in process" with H1B create a problem while going for F1
    visa interview?
    I have heard that during the F1 visa interview, questions have been
    asked like, "you have already applied for H1B because you have
    immediate interest in doing a job there and now you say you want to
    study,how do you justify your stance...???"

    Can someone clarify on this?Has anyone faced any situation like this
    before?Please reply asap because I have to let my company know my
    consent or reject in a day.
