Can I file for H1b when change of status to F1 is pending

Asked over 2 years ago - Stone Mountain, GA

I filed for a change of status from B2 to F1. it's still pending but I got a sponsor for H1b. Can I file the H1b while the other change of status is pending.

Additional information

Do I have to withdraw the F1 filing? Will there be any problem if I don't withdraw the F1 before filing the H1B?

    Answered . Replace the pending F1 with the H1B petition, or you can wait for the F1 approval and then do COS to H1B but the quota may run out by then.
