Started as SC 3 months ago after STEM certified Masters. Got an email that my H1B will be filed for FY 2020. My STEM OPT expires Feb 2021. Should I request them to initiate it for FY2019 instead?

The subject says “Added to the Deloitte FY2020 H1B Cap waitlist” although email says in November 2019, they will open an H1B cap. Is that a typo?

May be. I would suggest double checking with the team. They should have mentioned November 2018.

Yes, you should. You never know if your case is going to be picked up later when your OPT nears expiration date
