Hello
This was my first attempt H1B and got approved. I did my MS and plan to go back home after few years.
Is it worth doing MBA ? Many people told me that since you are already in big4 you dont need one.
My target is to get in MBB down the line.

My H1B didn’t get approved but still got all of my OPT and extension left. I intend to stay here atleast till the end of OPT, once that’s done I’ll go back home. MBA in the states is a VERY VERY BIG investment and I just don’t want another student debt

My H1B got approved already? When did the firm submit your package to the USCIS?

like

Correction: It was selected in lottery. Apologies

If you go back home 'after a few years', will you have recovered your investment at a top B school plus whatever loan you've already invested for your MS? An MBA from one of those 7 schools will easily be 150-200k out of pocket.

I thought USCIS wasn’t starting data entry till May 1 for H1-B cap

Does anyone know what level (associate/senior associate/manager) do you have to be when PwC starts green card application process? I’ve been with the firm for one year and got my H1B this October. Looking at previous bowls, I found different answers, some ppl say one has to be in the firm for at least a certain amount of time, some say three years before H1B runs out, some say it’s case by case. Can someone with experience talk about it? Thanks!
