Advisory opinion: not subject

Hello everyone!
According to my J1 visa and DS-2019 note, I am a subject to the 2-year-requirement of Section 212(e). However, I received an advisory opinion informing directly that I am not a subject to it.

So, my question is it, if I can use the advisory opinion letter, as proof that I don't need a J1 waiver, when I apply for H-1B or apply to adjust the status to immigrant?

Thank you.

According to the guidelines of Temple University, the official advisory opinion letter should suffice if you wish to change to H-1B status:


The point is that according to visa I am a subject to the rule, but according to advisory opinion I am not. So, I would like to know, if I am or not. But, now I know that I need to keep this document for H1-B. Thank you.
