H1B Cap reached

USCIS has announced today that, as of December 21 2009, they have received sufficient h1b applications to fill the quota for FY 2010 (1 oct 2009 to 30 Sept 2010). They have already received the cap exempt, Masters Degree holder cap of 20,000. So, no more H1b applications will be accepted for the FY 2010.

They will start accepting FY 2011 (1 oct 2010 to 30 sept 2011) H1b applications from 1 apr 2010.

The applications where filled within in the first one week, for the last 2 years. But, this year, I went on for 8 months starting in april 2009. USCIS has received more than 10,000 applications in last one month. Is it a sign of economy improving ? Atleast, I would hope for it !!!
