As we know USCIS is returning rejected cap-subject H-1B petitions for FY2016. There are number of OPT students who have not heard positive decisions from USCIS.

Keeping this in mind, One of our reader Viswa had suggested DesiOPT to throw light on below topics

1. Which is better: CPT from Day1 Vs. Joining PHD program
2. Universities offering CPT from Day1? Are they genuine?

I gave it a thought and felt, it would be nice if other’s shared their views as well. Do share your thoughts by commenting below.

PhD is always a better option than CPT as many H1B applicants who used cpt are getting RFE. But if you have used cpt in genuine way using cpt can be good because you won’t need to go through Phd program which usually lasts for 5-6 years. And keep in mind PhD is not so easy to enroll, you need good scores.
