I’m planning a second master’s after I completed mine over a year ago. After graduation in august 2015, I started OPT on Spet '15 and due to unavoidable circumstances I left the US on Jan '16. I was not employed on OPT per se, i merely updated as voluntary work at the university to avoid unemployment days.
I now have 2 admissions from reputed universities but the whole SEVIS, OPT & CPT procedure is daunting.
Can i get OPT a second time? If not, how can I use CPT to get a job and apply for H1B? Will my SEVIS be the same or do i have to apply and pay the SEVIS fee for the new F1 visa?
