Received a denial on my H1B RFE (not extension); PwC law says they did not receive a reason for the denial; is this possible? I have only 1 more attempt at the H1B - would it help for me to move?

I’m so sorry OP😔 that’s terrible. It would be helpful to find out the reason for your denial so you can adjust next year. I think the reason would be stated on the denial letter so maybe wait a few days and ask the law firm again?

Yeah they’re like there’s no reason stated. They wouldn’t share the receipt notice because it belongs to PwC. They mentioned that it could be a “restriction in the number of approvals” and also depends on the officer that reviewed my app. I don’t know where to go with this.

Ugh that is odd. But I am dealing with an RFE and the law firm wouldn’t share the notice with me either. It’s very frustrating. Have you spoken to your HR manager about this?

HR was on this call with me; is there something they can do? Alternative given was that they will file for FY2020. Going through the lottery all over again is such a painful experience

Got a denial a in 2017 (Jan). Applied with just an engineering degree, as I was still a student at the time. Got 3rfes and a denial. Submitted my documents again with an mba. Got an approval. I think it’s fairly random. I also tried to appeal, but it didn’t work out.

PwC 2 - what was the rational given during appeal process? Was it specialized knowledge could not be demonstrated based the degree? Also can you say what was the SOC code.

Don’t remember now to be honest. Based on my google search, most appeals are useless. It’s like 5-10% chance. And you wait for like 5-6 months to hear back.
