What career / visa options one has if he / she doesn't get H1B during OPT. Spouse is on H1B. Both of us are grads from UPenn. Unfortunately haven't got my H1 for the last two years. Last chance this time. Thinking of what options have people in the same situation considered in the past.

      If you’re Indian or Chinese this will be useless; but you can get EAD through you’re spouse if I-140 is approved

  • File for GC, try other visas like O1 or do another degree.

      Good option, but my country of birth is India , so EAD through GC is a long process, a really long one. And O1 is a good option, will give it a try.

      If O1 is an option, see if you are eligible for EB1-A/B.

      Your H1 got approved without any issues? I’m hearing that H1 will be an issue if we are on Day1CPT. Any idea?

      Also, do you know what other companies accept Day1 cpt candidates? Any of the top tech companies?

      H1 was approved but, shit ton of issues - multiple rfes / i797-b / consular processing but finally approved ! Might be worth it or not - depends on options
