H1B expiring end of month; I-94 expiring 10 days after that; Employer told me they will not renew; I started actively interviewing; offers likely to come in 30 to 60 days from now.
(Question 1) Should I (A) file a COS from H1B to B1/B2 or (B) leave US and return under B1/B2 visa? Assuming all else being equal and perfect immigration record, which method is a safer bet?
(Question 2) For each option, what is the deadline - H1B or I-94 expiry date?
(Question 3) Is there another way for me to stay on legally aside from these 2?
Thank you very much for all your help.
