Hello friends ..
here is my situation i got an elective oppurtunity form university of texas and they send me an i20 form for f1 visa for october and november and i am informed i was mandate to visit the OIA of that college as soon as i step in houston . i got another elective for near by hospital methodist for the months of
september and december . I got to know form info on this site that the duration they grant f1 visa is duration of our course +2 months .
here are my doubts
1) Is it ok , i enter the us like on aghust 28 or so , inform OIA of houston and carry on my elective at near buy methodist . ( AS IN THAT 4 MONTHS F1 I CAN COMPLETE ALL THAT ELECTIVES )
2) SUppose i got b1 /b2 tourist visa even then if i do methodist elective on b1/b2 , i need some time to go to another country and reenter us on f1, how much time does this process take
