Please advise here, My H1B ended on March 10th and I applied for H1B transfer on Apr 5th. Application was denied by USCIS due to non-speciality occupation reason on May 20th. I applied for COS to H4 on May 22nd and got receipt number. Questions: 1. Since H4 COS would take longer do you advise to go back to home country and get visa from consulate. 2. What are the chances for H4 visa from home country, could there be any issues as spouse's H1 is valid till Nov' 17. 3. Can I apply for COS to F1 now. What are the chances that F1 would be granted. Thanks in advance and appreciate your advise.
