F-1 VISA Renewal Rules.. After deferment

Hi All,

I secured the VISA in June 2014 and I was at USA from August 7 to september 8 2014. I had to retyurn due to family emergencies. I have deferred my admission and secured a new I20 with a different SEVIS ID.

After speaking to the consulate, they asked me procure new VISA, as this was invalid. Can anyone tell if I will be eligible for drop-box for this process of procuring a new VISA.

PS: University is the same, but SEVIS ID has changed.

Please help!!!

Apparently yes. But in profile answer correctly. There are conditions to drop box submissions. System will tell you if you are eligible or not
