I'm currently working for a university under h1b status. Recently, I received an offer from a for profit institution in NYC. It's a terrific job, but can I begin working before oct 1, 2013? I'm afraid it's too long of a wait for the company and I will lose my offer. I have talked to several attorneys, but only one of them said I can appeal during mid of fiscal year. Can I believe what she said? What are my options otherwise?It's a private company I received offer from. Thanks.
