I have been on H1B for 5 years and would like to go back to school for MBA fulltime. My greencard application is waiting priority date with I-140 approved. I do not expect to get greencard in one year. I can get 3 year h1b extension with approved I-140. which of 2 option will work?
1. Go to school on F1 for 2 years and come back to H1B. If this will work, I have the following 2 concerns:
1a) can I go back to F1 with immigration intent already made clear by my green card application?
1b) can I come back after 2 years on F1 to unused H1B extension? I do not want to go out of US for 1 year. So do not want to be counted to H1 quota
Option 2: Go to school on h4 (with spouse's h1) and come back to unused H1B extension.
2a) I do not want to go out of US for 1 year. Can I switch to old H1B
