I graduated last May and was granted OPT. I went back to the UK for the summer, with the intention of returning to the US in July when my new job began. Sadly, my mother became very sick and was admitted to the hospital for 3 months, which meant that I couldn't return to the US for my job. There were many family factors involved, but now I finally have the time to return to the US. I need to do so not to work, but to collect my things and sell my car, and deal with some matters that my friends couldn't help me with as I have to be there in person. It's been a tough year! Does anyone have advice for this situation? Should I apply for an ESTA to come into the US, or travel on my OPT still? I'm not sure what to do... but I do need to go to the US asap!
Thank you for any advice.
