My OPT application got rejected. Since USCIS was increasing the application fees from $380 to $410 from December 23, 2016, I posted the application on December 20 with $410 fees but my application reached their office before December 23. Now they have rejected the application saying that we cannot keep any extra money.
I will post my application again on January 20, 2017. My degree conferral date is February 1, 2017. I also have the offer letter from an employer who is ready to file my H1B this year only. What start date should I choose now?
If there are any other suggestions please feel free to post them.
Thank You in advance.
