It appears USCIS may resort to lottery for selecting the H1B-2014 petitions for adjudication.
I am employed while on post completion (12 Month) OPT and my employer is filing H1B petition on 1 April as anounced. I have the following queries.
What is the lottery system and how is it operated? Are all the H1B petitions are pooled for selection irrespective of date of filing ? What are the chances of selection of petitions of canadidates (speciality) qualified fronm US Universities
In the event of non.selection of a petition for processing , does it mean the candidate is denied H1B status ?
I have also made application for 17-month OPT extension with USCIS as I am qualified under STEM.category. Will it be processed simultaneouly or will be on hold ?
Request you to please clarify and advise.
