F1 Visa stamping after graduation and before OPT start date

Hi,

Scenario:
I came to USA on H4 and had a change of status to F1 but do not have any visa stamping done yet.
I have completed my graduation and have a EAD card and an Offer letter with OPT starting in February.
I want to travel to India right now and planning to return before my employment (OPT) begins. I have booked my Visa interview slots for January already.

Question:
Is it recommended to travel right now? Could anyone with similar scenario share your thoughts.
Would appreciate your help here.

Hi Pallavi.

Even i am in same boat. I am in my STEM OPT and booked slots for F1 stamping in January. Did you get any reply for this post. Would appreciate if you can share!

Thanks
