Hi, currently I works at a local e-verified company,my employer will submit my h1b application on April 1st. the problem is my 12 mons opt will expire at July 5th. Once my h1b application is denied, I have to leave us if I don't submit my opt extension application.
The time line is:
master graduation date: 05/10/2012, opt beginning date:07/06/2012, opt ending date:07/05/2013. Tentative h1b application date: 04/01/2013. The earliest date for opt extension application date if needed: 04/06/2013
Can I submit opt-extension application after submitting h1b application? any risk with this way? OR is Premium Processing a more safer way because once h1b application is denied by the end of April, I still have enough time to submit opt extension application.
