I was on H-4 visa. Our H-1B/ H-4 extension has been denied. We did not see it coming.
I am enrolled in a dental school on H-4, I am half way through my program. Me & my husband will be exiting the country ASAP and my school will be starting my I-20 to start my F-1 visa. My husband is not coming back as my dependent.
I am in a reputed school, considered one of the best in the country and known for it’s advanced technologies (things that are not so widely taught in India at this point of time). I am also ranked highly in class.
I never intended to change to a student visa earlier my sole purpose of changing the visa is to continue my education which I started so that I obtain my degree.
What should I keep in mind while attending the interview mid-semester?
What are the documents that I should take from school apart from I-20 so that I can prove my good standing?
Can I avail an expedited appointment to cut short my leave of absence?
An H1 extension denied within the validity of the prior I-94 may be refiled.
A H4 to F-1 visa may be granted.
