    Poultry Scientists Get Green Cards, MBAs Get the Boot

    Do you think someone with an MS in Poultry Science from Kansas State University should be ahead in line to get a U.S. green card compared to a Stanford or Harvard MBA?

    Immigration reform legislation is expected to include not just the top 10 or top 50 or even the top 100 schools -- it is expected to cover more than 200 schools across the country. Washington bills usually specify that new VISA rules apply to graduates of STEM degrees from specified lists of universities. These lists are based on the 1965 Higher Education Act designations, Carnegie Foundation classifications, and categorizations from the National Science Foundation. As an example, the House recently passed (a now dead) piece of legislation around STEM VISA reform (STEM Jobs Act). In this Act, the House indicated that any doctorate-granting university with a high or very high level of research as classified by the Carnegie Foundation should be included in the STEM VISA reforms. I went to the Carnegie Foundation website to try and understand what this list would be. I came up with a list of 206 universities....Interested to read more - Find the link in comments from DesiOPT.com

        NO- the immigration reform rules have not yet been passed. They do NOT yet exist.

          BTW, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook is putting up $20 million of his own money to form a non-profit organization that can raise unlimited amounts of money to lobby Congress on the issues they care about - starting with IMMIGRATION!

                The FINAL bill will likely be different than any of the bills that have already come out. After a bill is agreed upon by Congress, it still has to be signed by the President. It could come later this year. All parties appear to be very interested in some version of comprehensive immigration reform passing.

                  I hope they apply to all foreign students pursuing STEM advanced degrees rather than being specific to few universities
