Yep - Canada is very similar to US and my plan was to come back to the US after getting a Canadian passport on TN visa or h1b and green card if my priority date becomes current. Thought about Australia, but that’s too far away from friends and family - plus expensive process too

A colleague in my team is going through H1 issues. She's 39. Is she eligible?

Definitely eligible. But people over 30 lose certain points per year. Not exactly sure how many points per year over 30, but might be hard to get to the cutoff score

Age is key. I am just over 30 (31) and it made a huge difference to score. Hence switched to my wife as primary applicant (she is 29) and we are now in the final stage. Waiting for ITA submission approval. Also, work ex has no value!!! My spouse is a PhD candidate with 1 yr teaching work ex and she got the same score as me on that category. I technically have ~8 years work ex with big 4's in the US

So my friend close to 40 should not even consider applying.

It's free to get a rough estimate on scores. Use that to decide...

What D1 said. Use a calculator online and get an estimate for CRS

If you submitted an H1-B application for this year's lottery, does it remain active through all subsequent lotteries this year?

Thanks!
