    Did you apply for an OPT before you finished school? Have you been offered a job yet? I would suggest that you get a petition submitted by a hospital as soon as psosible, as it will be 90 days before you can begin work, if you do not have the OPT. And you can only apply for that while you are still in school. It is not available once you graduate.
