Why are you taking risk?  Get it premium processed ($1225) get it stamped and come back.

If they deny you at the POE (many time it depends on the officer's descretion) it might turn out to be a deportation case and can result in you getting banned.

If you go out during extension normally  your COS is abandonned but since your visa is valid till that day I dont know about your I94. I94 comes with COS.
