I filed for H1B April 12th, 2012 (under the Master’s cap) and just got an RFE notice this week.
The company’s handling the RFE right now but I noticed that they have until Nov 1, 2012 to meet the requirements. I know that the company is doing everything they can to meet that date… but even if they sent their RFE response (let’s say) next week, I’ve read RFE review times can be anywhere to 60days (which would definitely pass Oct 1 cutoff date). What would that mean for my application? Are there cases where people get approved AFTER Oct 1?
