USCIS has reported that the number of petitions filed in this year’s H-1B Cap season under the Master’s Degree option topped 50,000, out of the total of 233,000 H-1B petitions which were filed. USCIS also reported the number of cases filed under the Premium Processing option in this year’s Cap season remained basically the same as last year. That’s interesting, given the significant jump in the total number of cases filed.
