I was in USA during the period Aug 2008 - April 2011.
During the course I attended gradaute studies (Master of Science)@ State Univeristy of New York - Stony Brook and was on F1 Visa
by the time i graduate i recieved my EAD card valid for the period May 2011-May2012 as I graduated in May 2011.
I got my employment in the same year during Aug 2011 and I started to work on my EAD permit (OPT) at the same time.
Further, my company filed my H1b visa which got approved during Dec 2011 although I didn't get my staming done for the same
and I left US during April 2011.
If I have to consider starting my MBA in US will I be eligible for a second OPT period after i finish my MBA?
I have heard that if the individual stays out of US territory and returns back after atleast 1 year then he is eligible for another OPT period for same level of education.
