The USCIS has received by some estimates 200,000 H-1B applications for roughly 65,000 spots. Clearly the Vermont and California Service Centers were not equipped to deal with this volume. While I sympathize with the staff, I am hearing about a lot of irregularities. Quite a few got receipt notices before the lottery, and some got approvals after the lottery. (I am talking about non US Master’s Degree holders). How can we be sure that a case was properly entered into the lottery system, with all possible cases, and given a fair chance at the lottery? Was there a higher power (besides God) who oversaw that lottery to see it was properly done? I need to see those documents along with each of my rejected cases.
