Yes, If you return to the US on a Student Visa (F1) then your earlier H1 B would eventually become invalid. Hence, you need to go for a new H1B for your post MBA employment in the US. On your second question, I am not sure if there are any disadvantages. As you have worked in the US before and are exposed to their work culture, you may have a slight edge on others (no US experience) with skill sets.

So if i return to India, i would have to apply for H1B again to be able to work there, right?
Also, does applying for H1B for the 2nd time have any particular advantage or disadvantage? Thank you

Based on your plan, If you come back to Indian in Year 2 and stay in India (out of US) for a year, then the clock is reset. That means, Year 5 will be treated as the starting year for the new H1B you are going to get after your MBA.

After getting an H1B this year, I have a set plan for the next 7 years(if all goes according to plan)
Year 1 - Work for my company in the US
Year 2 - Back to India & work for a yr more
Year 3,4 - MBA in the US
Year 5,6,7 - Work in the US to repay my loan.

Query: H1B is valid for a max of 6 years. I think we need to return to India before applying for H1B again. How to do i manage to work in the US in the 7th year without having to return back to India for a yr? Kindly help. Thank you.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what would be the total cost for doing an MBA in US from top20 universities...?
I referred to different websites but each one is giving different estimates.

bs0409, each b-school would have certain fixed and variable component that would determine the cost of your MBA.
For example, the fixed components would include the tuition fees (which is the major chunk), health insurance, fees for books & course materials. The variable component would be your living, eating, personal excursions and other life-maintainence expenditures (including studying with family)- which will depend on your lifestyle.
Other than this you would be paying for any field trips/ career treks etc
The best place to get this data would be from the websites of your target schools. In general you can expect the cost of an MBA from the top 20 programs to work out around $150,000 - $160,000.

In this context does anybody have any idea about
1) How long it takes to get Canadian citizenship?
2) How long the US GC queue is for Canadian citizens?

Hi Folks
Anyone having any idea on the following:
Duration of OPT in US post MBA? Is it 14 months ? Also anyone who completes an MBA from US gets to stay in US during OPT irrespective of whether they get a job or not ?


OPT period is 12months. You are allowed 90days of unemployment in the OPT period before you have to leave the country. However, if you are working in even a non-paying job, then the 90day rule is put on hold. Most students, when still searching for a job, volunteer at some kind of organization and thus keep away the 90day limitation.
