she did that because the school notified her very late about her acceptance into the program (Dental Residency) and that she must show up for the mandatory orientation. What is the best option to correct her situation after getting the I-20 in hand ?

I encourage you to speak with the DSO at the school where your wife was accepted. The easiest way to correct her status is to obtain the I-20, leave the US and re-enter with the I-20 and the F-1 visa. A change of status would be problematic and take too much time.
