  • H1B with Advanced Degree Rejection Rate

    My employer will be applying for a H1B application of my behalf on 1 Apr 2015 under the advanced degree category.
    Since the exact number for H1B applications with advanced degree quota is not disclosed by the USCIS, it is difficult to predict the odds of success for the candidates who apply in this category. All forums and websites predict the odds of H1b success after including both advanced and general pool numbers. The probability of success from the lottery is obviously very different for candidates in both categories.

    I personally do not know or could find any information/anecdotes on people with a Masters or PhD degree from a reputed institution with an unfavorable result from H1 lottery.

    About me - I have a Phd from a reputed public research university and current on F-1 STEM OPT extension, due to expire at the end of year.

        Doesn't depend on the reputation of the university, its a lottery

          t was supposed to be based on the reputation of the univ, but things have changed right now. Many ppl are exploiting the immigrant friendly rules by enrolling in fake univs and stealing opp from a well deserving candidate. You would surprised to know that most of these fake students file multiple H1 applns (4-5), all from fake Desi consultancies to exploit the immigration system.

            I did my master and got picked in general quota... Hope this helps... Master only gets you 2 chances in the lottery nothing related to chances of approval or denial. Good Luck...

              Do you know anyone who applied on the Masters quota and got rejected?
              I have never come across a case like that
