I have been a full time student in us since August 2014. I applied for opt on February 10. Since it was passed 90 days mark and I wasn't hearing anything back I went to my dso. She told me that my opt has been denied as it shows on my sevis record. she told me that it may be denied because I worked in 12 different months and Uscis says that you can't work 12 months on cpt. The university form that I filled says that if you work 364 days or more then you are ineligible for opt. I worked around 266 days. Since time is passing and Uscis status still says it is pending what should I do ? Or should I transfer to a language school? And wait for the decision.
Your DSO is correct. Transferring to another language school now will not resolve your problem. Sorry.
