Does anyone has an idea about H1B to F1 visa conversion? Can an H1B holder apply for F1 visa? I am working on H1B and I have to leave my employer for MBA, so I would need F1.

I heard that H1B holder are not eligible for F1.

Can anyone please help with this?

I see no reason to be concerned. It is a straightforward process though as always, requires diligence. The only part to be aware is that usually Visas are only issued in Embassies outside of the US, so you may not get your actual F1 Stamped in your passport until you leave the country. However, you do not need an F1 visa Stamp to stay in the US, only to enter the US.

Many people have done iti without issues including mbanerd16 who has attended Owen and posted his School Debrief here: https://gmatclub.com/reviews/comments/o ... -345354037
