my question is :
i came from israel on student visa (F-1)for one year .
After i completed the computer design program i got a work permit from the immigration(Optional Practical Training) for one year.
Which is expires on 3.20.2006.
How can i extend my status?
What can i do to stay in usa legally?
Possibly, depending on the circumstances.
As a "Non-Immigrant"...you cannot stay in the United States indefinately...and if you stay beyond the term of your visa, you can find yourself being removed from the US...not a good thing. Try looking into the H1B program or become a permanent resident.
