Immigration 🐠 - If I have an I140, how difficult is it to get an F1 visa to pursue an MBA? After the MBA, should I go through the H1B lottery process again? What happens to my spot in the GC queue?

Following since I have the exact same situation and question. From what I gather so far it’s not that difficult and you won’t have to go through lottery but you’d lose your h1 and will have to get a new one (no cap or lottery). You would not lose your spot in the queue.

Thanks D! If you have talked to any lawyers and would recommend one, share the contact maybe?
