Hi, I got my bachelor degree in the US and after that spent 1 year of OPT (not working), I went home for 2 months and after that got back in the US, because I still had about 4 month of OPT left. After OPT ended, I enrolled in graduate school for a spring semester. I was supposed to start it in the fall but I deferred my enrollment because I still hoped to work for a couple of months while my OPT card was still valid.
My mistake was that I did not transfer I-20 form from my other university and I found out that I am out of status in the middle of second semester of my studies. More than 5 months passed, so I was recommended to go back to my home country with a new I-20 and reentry the country. So that not to lose money I had paid and credits I had taken, I waited till the end of the semester and after that I went home.
Now my questions are: what are my chances to reentry the US successfully? Should I mention in my electronic application for a visa that I fell out of status or should I wait for a personal interview and explain the situation? (I've got letter from the university and my unofficial transcript for 2 semesters as well). Thanks
