My company applied for my H1b on April 9th 2012. My OPT expires on August 31st 2012. I know that in order to extend my OPT I have to apply 3 months before expiration date.
I have two questions. First, can I work after august 31st if my visa status is still pending? Second, can I apply for my OPT extention if my H1B is pending (STEM degree). Status is still Initial Review.
