Hello Friends. I appreciate and thank each of the member of this group for being supportive and helping everyone. I need you to please evaluate my situation and suggest me any option.
I came to the US in 2015 on F1 visa and got my H1B approved from 2016 to 2019 while I am still pursuing my first Master’s.
On April, 2018 my employer got an intent to revoke notice and he said they cannot defend it asked me to quit the job and look for options on your own.
I immediately got an admission and i20 for an MBA program while my I am still on H1B status (H1B revoked on July 2018). I filed an i-539 for a change of status from H1B to F1 and after waiting for 10 months in February 2019 I got the denial notice.
My initial F1 visa is approved until 2020 and my i-94 is valid until September 2019 (I got H1B stamped in February 2018)
I spoke to my DSO and she says that I can just start taking classes with new i20 as my F1 visa is approved until 2020 and I do not need to leave the country as my i-94 is valid until Semester 2019 but a couple of attorneys that I spoke are asking me to exit and enter with F1 visa.
Can someone please let me know if I can stay in the country and visit San Diego Ysidro US Mexico Border to exit and enter with F1 and get my i-94 validated as per my F1 Visa dates.
Sorry for the long post but I am trying to explain everything here so you can evaluate it accordingly. I welcome your opinions and suggestions, Many thanks in advance.
