    Answered . You are now deemed to be out of status. All your questions that follow need to be addressed to your school's DSO or FSA. I would strongly recommend against filing any type of MTR, since those are almost routinely denied by USCIS.

    Answered . I agree with my colleague. You are out of status. When you received the rejection letter, did the USCIS rejection found you to be out of status? Consult with an immigration attorney quickly if you want to avoid 3-10 yrs bar against you.

    Answered . It sounds like you are out of status. You should consult with your DSO and be sure not to overstay for 6 months as that will trigger a 3 year bar to re-entering the US.

    Answered . You may file a MTR but the possibility of being successful are very limited. You should meet with your foreign student adviser for options for transfer or departing and returning. Once your OPT extension is denied you are out of status.
