I am an international student who is persuing a bachelor degree in business. I have recently got a full time offer after my graduation in September 2014. I know that H1B application starts in April and it requires a bachelor degree, but some of my friends applied H1B before their graduation. They told me that I can ask the university for a confirmation letter that I will be graduating soon, and that can replace my official degree in the application. So can you please confirm if it’s true or not?
Also, for the worst case scenario, I am thinking about enrolling in a MS program. But I wonder if the master degree will give me another 1 year OPT or not?
Thank you in advance for your help.
