I am a F-1 student (doctoral student) and I am going to apply for OPT one month before my graduation date. I have read that it might take 3-5 months to receive my EAD card. I have also read that I cannot be unemployed 90 days while on OPT.
Now my question is what happens if I don't receive my EAD 90 days after the graduation date? Can I stay in the United States as long as my OPT approval is pending?
