My grandmother filed I-130 for my mother in 2004 and approved in 2011 under f3 category India.
My parents still in India.
I would require f1 student visa to do MS in Software Spring 2015.
Will Immigration officer firm not to grant student visa just beacuse petition pending? They won't see my intention of bank fide student going to study USA? My seriousness of education course, they never care?
Since the visa priority date may well become current in the next year it may be hard for you to convince them you have no immigrant intent. And if you wait a year for your MS and do it with your green card, you will also be eligible for a federal student loan, which might help you going forward. Maybe have a conversation with an immigration attorney about your options.
To obtain the F1 you need to establish non-immigrant intent. This could be challenging because the priority date for the petition is close to being current. As my colleague mentions, it might be cheaper (and easier) to come to the US as a resident. Consult with an attorney.

It will be hard for you to establish non-immigrant intent , since the priority date for the petition may became current soon. Best of Luck
