Question
i'm a student on F1 visa .. i went out of status for a semester .. how can i stay back in US and change my visa to H1B if i have an employer .. please help me out in this issue ..

Answer
Arun: If you have recently falled out of F-1 status you could try to get reinstated. To do this you need to contact your foreign student advisor. You cannnot change to H status if you are not currently in status.
