... Below 440, so trying to gauge if
1- that puts me out of contention
2- Alternatives to boost my case

476, age 29, masters, 8.5 Ielts, 5 YOE

Did not try provincial

These days it is difficult to clear the cutoff if the score is less than 450. The easiest way for you will be to wait for an year and then apply when your experience is 3+ years. Previously Ontario used to give the most nominations but they have stopped since the change in Govt.

Op - try to improve your IELTS. Second get some more Work Exp. To get max points you need 3 years of work exp

471 both spouse and I have masters, both have IELTS 8.5

I accepted an offer from another consulting firm and my H1B visa has also been transferred. I have not joined the new role yet. However I had been interviewing with another firm and expecting an offer I know this is not the best practice but is it allowed to accept another offer even though H1 transfer has been approved through another employer? If I accept the second offer does this raise any red flags with USCIS as they potentially see 2 almost consecutive visa transfer requests?
