F1 visa for masters after doing undergrad in US - chances of getting a second F1 approved?

I came here on F1 from the UK in 2014 and did my undergrad. Graduated in 2018 and have spent the last 3 years doing my STEM OPT. My OPT expires next month and I plan on heading back to England to see my family before starting my masters program in the fall. I got accepted at a good university in the US - top program for a one year masters followed by six months global internship overseas.

My concern after reading online is F1 visa rejection because I’ve already been here since 2014, done OPT, heading home when the EAD expires and then coming back in the fall for Graf school. I feel like it could look suspicious? I don’t intend to stay once i head out on the global internship but I’m concerned if I get rejected it might be safer to accept at a UK University even if it’s not as prestigious.

Does anyone have advice or has anyone been In a similar situation?

Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
