H1 to B2 to H4


New Member

Since my H1 expired( May-15), I applied for B2- change of status from US and the B2 is approved now. I did not leave the country from last year. I am never out of status. My spouse also got an H1b extension approved and I would like to apply for H4 visa.

Also I am planning to do masters next year and I will apply for (Student Visa).

Which will be best scenario for me.

1) apply for H4 visa as a change of status staying in USA and then again apply for student visa as a change of status without leaving the country.
2) go to India for H4 visa interview and then for stamping for Student visa
3) any other better option.

Please help.
