B1 Visa B1 Visa Validity

I have six months multiple entry B1/B2 from Mar 2012 to 18 Sept 2012.
And I gave CS in May2 012 and came back in less than a week. now I want to give step3 in September. Can I enter USA on 17 Sept 2012. Is there any chances I be denied entry at POE as my visa is expiring next day (18 Sept).

Please Steptaker or Sabio I need your expert opinion.

Legally, there's no problem. You can go on the last day of your validity. The immigration officer at the airport will mention the time you can stay.

However, for safety purposes, I would go a week before the end of validity not one day before the end of validity just to avoid any problems and be on the safe side.

Hey,

when you get to the POE for your Step 2 CS exam, did you tell the officer you were there to take the exam? Does telling the officer that reduce your chances of entry at POE or cause any other problem?
