Will USCIS wait till 5th Apr to run lottery if cap is reached?

In case the cap on H1b visas is reached before 5th April (say tomorrow or on Wednesday), will the USCIS accept all applications till the 5th of April and then run the lottery OR will it stop accepting applications mid-week and run the lottery?

My employer has informed that my visa application will be filed in the first week of April but I do not know when exactly.

All the applications collected in the first five days will be clubbed and selction will be done through lottery eventhough the cap is crossed even before that. So there is no need to worry if your application is reached within first 5 days.

Looks like its confirmed for a lottery this year… Dsturbing…:frowning:
