I have just been denied my O-1 petition for the 2nd time, but I have been selected DV2014. What's next?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

My denial letter was issued sometime last week or early this week. My lawyer doesn't have time for me until Monday, but I'm going crazy! Should I go back to my native country Japan and pursue Consular Processing or Adjustment of Status by applying for something like P-1? If I choose CP (which I'm more inclining toward to) does that make me out of status? Do I have to leave right away? Thank you so much!!!
