Can I apply for F1 student visa during my H1 visa approved status and stamping pending

asked Nov 25, 2016 in F1, CPT, OPTs by Raviracherla (300 points)

Hi everyone,this is Ravi,I have applied for H1B visa and got approved in last year  but I did  not go for visa stamping because my employer was unable to provide me a client letter ,so I am hanging in middle of no where now. My question is, can I go for studying  MS now ,will there be any problem when I go for my F1 visa stamping,as  the visa approver will be able to see all my details,abt my prior application to H1B which is in approved status now ,so what type of questions can I expect  from visa interviewer and how to answer them,if any one have faced any such type of situation kindly reply me,your reply will be invaluable.

                                                     thanking you,

With regards,

An individual may seek further education at any point in their lives and that should never be a hindrance to applying for an F-1 student visa. Individuals who also possess one Masters degree sometimes pursue a second Masters degree in a different field of study. Further sometimes certain education abroad can meet an individual's professional goals.

There should be no issues in relation to questions or answers you may face to expand your knowledge in furtherance of your career and/or to meet certain professional goals.
