I am currently on F-1 OPT STEM extension of 17 months and my employer is filing for H1-B and H4 for my wife this April. My wife is currently on F-2 and in US with me. She plans to study MBA starting Aug'13 and I am confused as to how to plan on getting her the F-1 visa. I know she can study on H-4 but she wants to do assistantship. My H1B if approved will begin from Oct 1st and her course is going to start from Aug. Can she still proceed further to apply to an university? An if yes, how best to get her an F-1?
