J1 Waiver

I am currently on a J1 visa and am working at University of Chicago. I need a J1 waiver so I can switch to H1B visa because I am on my final J1 extension. Can I do no objection waiver? I am from Argentina.

A no objection based waiver is likely a good choice for you provided that you did not receive any government funding for your J1 program. However, if you have received government funding such as Fulbright, the chances of a no objection based waiver are very small without significant political support.
