So it seems that I was not selected in the H1-B lottery this year. I am on OPT right now which expires January 1st, 2014. I will apply for the STEM extension after that. My F1 visa has already expired in May 2013.
I was wondering if it would be possible for me to go back to India anytime before I apply for the H1b visa next year. I know its difficult since my f1 visa expired and I will be going back just on the OPT status. Please let me know.
