Optional Practical Training OPT to be suspended / cancelled?

Post Sun Mar 23, 2014 10:23 pm
The Optional Practical Training (OPT) program has been the lifeline for many international students who go to US universities for higher studies.

However, if Senator Grassley has his way, the OPT rules are in for a major overhaul, including an ‘immediate moratorium‘ for being ‘at risk for fraud and non-compliance‘ and ‘vulnurable to abuse‘.

Here's a report on this development that could impact thousands of international students studying (or planning to study) in the US --> Optional Practical Training OPT to be suspended or cancelled?

This understanding is based purely on Senator's letter that was released some time back and I have no legal expertise is area. But keen to hear from current and aspiring US MBA students who've done more research on how the OPT works.

Think this could rock the boat for international students?
