  • question on h1b change of status

    hi

    i was on f1 until 2006. here is my sitution:

    had opt until 2006 June 30th
    applied for H1 on april 1st 2006
    got approved on 30th april 2006 along with change of status approved, with a start date of oct 1st 2006
    went to india on jun 5th 2006 and reentered on F1 visa on june 15th and got a new i-94 at the port of entry. went back to school until sept 30th 2006...
    informed my university about my h1 starting on oct 1st 2006...so they updated SEVIS
    had been working on h1 since oct 1st 2006....haven't got my stamping yet....


    ----------
    based on my consultation with several attorney's and uscis representatives, i was told that my h1 change of status is still valid to start on oct 1st 2006,even though i made a interim travel after the h1 approval

    -------------------
    so am concerned,will i have any issue with getting my visa reject during stamping.....saying i was out of status.....if at all if something of that sort happens.......how can i defend myself for getting my visa back again
