I have been offered to work as an independent contractor for a consulting firm. I am not sure I can work as a independent contractor under a CPT. Can I ?
This is a real great question to ask your DSO. It all depends on how your CPT structured.

You should discuss this with your Designated School Official.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
I agree with my colleagues. Your school's DSO controls your CPT ... talk to him/her.
