H-1B cap may not have been reached yet

USCIS has announced that it is continuing to accept H-1B cases that are subject to the Fiscal Year 2010 cap. This means that the agency might not have received enough petitions within the first few days of filing to reach the quota. If this is the case, this would be the first time in years that the cap was not reached immediately. This also means that any cases received by CIS before today should be accepted for H-1B processing and should not be entered in a random lottery. Any cases received after today may be too late, however we won't know when the cap has been reached until after this happens.

See Press Release here.
