H1B cap

The new information on USCIS website says, "As of October 30, 2009, approximately 53,800 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed. USCIS has approved sufficient H1-B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees to meet the exemption of 20,000 from the fiscal year 2010 cap. Any H1-B petitions filed on behalf of an alien with an advanced degree will now count toward the general H1-B cap of 65,000. USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, revoked, or withdrawn."

It is very interesting to see that just 3 days back, USCIS told they had 52,800 applications. Now, the website says 53,800. There is no explanation anywhere if they got 1000 applications in just 3 days or if it was an error in the earlier posting. If they have got 1000 applications in just 3 days, then the remaining 11,200 h1b will be filled pretty soon.
