When a change of status is denied, does it void the visa that you have?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

I'm on H1B work visa which is valid for another year. I also attend a full time MBA.

I would like to apply for COS to F1 and drop my H1B visa.

If the COS is denied for some reason, will I still be in H1B status?

I have paystubs and everything. I won't stop working until I get the COS answer.
