I'm so fucking tired of the visa hassles in this country. And who gets to experience the most pain? Obviously Indians as we are perhaps the only ones compulsorily required to apply for extensions given the broken and unfair immigration system.

How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?

TLDR: First time H1B RFE =purely a wait game? got RFE last Monday, wrote to lawyer last and this Monday but haven’t heard back. Should I just sit and wait? How long does it typically take for people to hear back RFE results? I have friends who waited for 4+ months last year but also saw cases of a few weeks in this bowl. Confused and lost.
