F1 OPT denial: Post 60 days Grace Period.
Greeting people,

While filing for my OPT(I-765) I missed the step where I had to receive OPT I-20 from college, and instead, I applied with program completion I-20 which was given to me along with my I-765 form.

I sent my packet with all the documents except I did not have OPT I-20. I did not know about this mistake until I got my OPT denial letter, which was exactly a day before my 60 days grace period after the program end date. Now my college refuses to apply for a new I-20 as my SEVIS status is now in completed status and they are not ready to provide me with a letter of support to file reinstatement.

Has anyone else faced a similar issue or can someone please help me through this?

F4 Visa Beneficiary applying for F1 Visa
Well, my wife’s F4 visa application was filed a few years ago by her sister (a US citizen). In a couple of years, her ‘priority date’ will be ‘current’.
Spouse is keen to study from US now. Sharing prevailing general perception that in such case when an F4 visa beneficiary attempt to enter in the US either on a visit or F1 visa the local embassy resist sanctioning the visa request. Embassy believes that the F4 beneficiary might not return to his/her motherland. This caveat (that US embassy will reject her study visa due to the above-mentioned scenario) concerns us the most.

Eager to know whether this is true that she can’t enter US before USCIS release her F4 visa or otherwise?

Additional Query: As her dependent of this F4 beneficiary, can I apply for education in US on F1 visa pls? Will this be a wise decision to apply for spouse an F2 visa (assuming that she can’t get F1 visa on her own).

Keen to hear soon.

Should I post F2 i20 for STEM OPT ?
Currently I am F1 OPT and about to apply for STEM OPT extension.

My wife doesn't live with me in US as of now. I wanted to bring my wife to USA so I got a F2 i20 for her from my college. However, she hasn't scheduled the visa interview appointment yet. And she is still not in US with me.

Now that I am about to send my documents for STEM OPT extension, should I send a copy of F2 i20 in the bundle of documents?
