If you submitted an H1-B application for this year's lottery, does it remain active through all subsequent lotteries this year? Specifically, does the submission of an I-485 under the family-based green card process lead the H1-B application to be withdrawn / not considered for any lotteries after the I-485 receipt date? Thanks!

Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!

Why do people find it so hard to have different opinions for political topics?? E.g. I'm black but I'm pro immigration, pro choice, pro-social safety net and anti-gun but... When it comes to other social issues I sometimes lean right. I don't think racism in America is as big of a deal as it is claimed to be and I have yet to see irrefutable evidence of "systemic racism" tbh I don't think it exists. I used to be a D but I'm now independent and this "with me or against me" vibe is toxic af

With WFH, I like to take quick naps (15 min) 2-3 times in between my schedule. I have been working very long hours (14-15 hours a day). I will miss my naps, the healthy snacks (I try to eat salads) and the quick workouts the most when wfh gets over. What will you miss the most?
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA?

I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.

Seeking advice on my dilemma. Currently a Manager at Deloitte, with a possible Senior Manager promotion in 2023. No guarantees of course. Awaiting EB3 EAD.
