I am Nirupama Bezawada did my MSEE and graduated in Dec 2016. I am on STEM- extension, my company is applying for my H1B this year. I want to pursue PhD in Jan 2020. I have couple of questions:
1.If my H1B gets picked up can i do a part time PhD and somewhere during the process can i move from part time PhD to full time PhD?
2. I my H1B got approved, can i convert back to F1 easily and how long is the process? Do i need to get stamped twice?
Thanks a lot in advance. Please let me know if i need to contact a lawyer to know better about my situation. The answers would help me to determine the get to a solution.
