I am a little confused. I am not part of the process but if anyone could help explain that would be great.

I thought you filed a petition previously starting April 1 and if it reached a certain amount say 3X the number of slots (around 200k) they would close the application process and then do a lottery.

Have they advanced the lottery process? Only if you are selected do you apply for the visa?

Significant process redesign D1. Lottery happens before u send out the packages, so USCIS don’t hav to process the 3X additional paper work, for those applicants who didn’t get picked in lottery.

I was looking at the h1b group on Facebook and noticed that people have been notified over the weekend through the lawyers on getting selected. I don’t know anyone within Deloitte though. They’re all working with industry

To add more based on Immigrationgirl, only a few applications show as accepted now. Most are still as submitted.

It’s going to be a progressive reveal until the 31st

No, but our lawyers/reps will be able to see it in their accounts for us (as beneficiaries)

Got it! Thanks!

PwC notified us last Friday that my application was selected in the lottery.

What does this mean?

What’s your source of info?

USCIS 🚨

What is next step for lawyers

Lottery completion? Do you mean to say you got selected in the lottery?

Wait did you hear back from our law firm OP??

I don’t know of anyone yet

Does only the law firm know, OP? Do you guys use Fragomen?

Regarding duplicate enrollment...Different employer for same beneficiary is valid....USCIS mentioned duplicate enrollment of same company and same beneficiary are invalid

Did u get the result yet?

No. But immigrationgirl reports a very very small percentage of people in both Masters Cap and normal H1B filings reflect as selected. This may or may not stagger in the coming days - no precedent
