Had 6 years work experience in US now want to apply for F1

Hi, I am Ashok,
I was in US for 6 years on H1B I had some extension issues and I came back to India in 2012 can I apply for F1 now ? How will be the success rate now if I apply at this age…im 38 years old now?

Yes, you can definitely apply and try it out. If you have admits from good schools, have good scores, it should be fine. If not, your intent would be questioned, if you try to go to any of the Day 1 CPT kind of colleges or low grade colleges. Read Dual Intent vs Nonimmigrant Visa. Always visa is subject to discretion of Consular officer and it has its own risks…
