    hello,

    I came to US on J1 visa (that has 2 year HRR requirement). Later i converted it into F1 and then started working in US on OPT. In order to change status from J1 to F1, i had to go back to my home country and go through consular processing. Now my opt is about to expire so i am thinking of apply for O1 visa. My question is that can i change my status from F1 to O1 within US (given that i held a J1 visa in past that has 2 year HRR and it has not yet fulfilled)?

    thanks
