B1 Visa Which is Safe after end of B1 Visa?

I have 6 month entry and it will end on 8 October 2012
I don't want to go back to my home country as I want to wait for interviews after residency application (if any will come) and do more US experience
All IMG I met, with the same visa and situation, advices me to do what they did
Return to home country then come back again
Legally, I can apply for another 6 months extension, and even if refused,
They will tell you have to leave the country as soon as possible
But, which is safe?
Should I be on the safe side and go home then come back
Or I can go on extension???
Plz urgent advice as I have no time

As others advised, Leaving country after 6 months and then coming back is the best and legal way.
Ya i know there are ways by which you can extend your visa but some people said this act can hamper our possibilities for next visit. Even i read somewhere in this forum that if we get extend our visa duration like that may be our J1 or H1 visa will be rejected later on but these visa issues depends on person to person.

My recommendation: you do all your observership till octuber and then go back country. Wait for interviews and if you get some. Schedule them in a duration of one month. may be from middle of oct. to nov. and then come back. Ya i know its extra expenditure of some $$$ but this is most effective way.

My inquire: If we leave US after 6 months of our stay when next time we can enter again. Is there any time duration like afte 10-15 days or we can return the next day?
