I am a student currently on F1. I am about to apply for OPT with start date as 4 months from now (July 2013) . I also have a full-time offer from an employer who wants to file my H1B in the current cap in this week.
I would like to know:
1. Can I file for both OPT and H1B at the same time?
2. Since both applications might reach USCIS around same time, does it negatively affect my OPT?
3. In case H1B is approved before OPT, can it be the case that the OPT approval will face problems.?
Please advise. It is really urgent as I need to take a decision at the earliest.
