Hi

thank you

Yes, that is true

in that case, i would miss my orientation....orientation starts on 15 june shaking head

Most programs pay for the orientation time. Your start time would be considered as the orientation. You should be able to enter US before June 15. Have you already completed the H1 papers? If not, make sure start date is mentioned as June 15 and July 1.

Which also means that your residency will end early - June 14, unless your program files an extension for the last two weeks of residency at another $2500 cost. Then you run the risk of not have the mandatory number weeks of residency to qualify for board certification.

i talked to my PC and the attorney. They are about to file for h1b.

The residency would start from 1 july, they wont mention 15 june in papers. And i wouldnt be able to enter USA before 21 june. I would miss the first week of the orientation disapproval and i wont be paid anything for the orientation ( i dont care about the 850$ though).
