visa to reenter US is expired on May 15.
Graduated from University. Presently applying for OPT.
If your OPT has been approved (EAD card has been issued by USCIS) and you have a job or a job offer, you may leave and re-enter the U.S. in order to begin or resume employment. If your post-completion OPT has been approved and you leave the U.S. before getting a job or a job offer, your OPT ends. You may not be able to re-enter the U.S. as an F-1 student. Please talk to your int'l student adviser. They are expert on those issues as well.

Contact your school's international student advisor office. OPT is authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (U.S.C.I.S.). This authorization can take 2 to 3 months to obtain. The maximum amount of time granted to work on F-1 OPT status is 12 months per degree level.
You may apply up to 90 days before your graduation date and the immigration service MUST RECEIVE your application NO LATER THAN 60 days beyond your graduation date or 60 days beyond the end date of your I-20 (WHICHEVER IS EARLIER) or, if you are an advanced graduate student, NO LATER THAN 60 days beyond the last day that you are registered as a student. You do NOT need to have a job offer in order to apply for OPT. You must have a job while you are on F-1 OPT, but the job CAN BE unpaid. You can NOT be without a job for more than 90 days while on OPT.
It is foolish to take even a 1% risk going to The Bahamas, go to Florida instead.
