    Yes. You been living under a rock? Didn't you see the IIT BTech Stanford MSCS MSFT person who's transfer to Google got rejected? Blind post few weeks back?

    Several people I know from top 5 univs got rejected for MSFT to fang or fang to fang transfers. If you know a transfer success story, do post here.

      Yeah so they can take away your Visa but not your job, or your skills.

      Transfer/Renewal petition can be denied without issuing RFE. Next year speciality occupation will be redefined. Combination of these two has potential to destroy dreams of many immigrants. There could be other changes that I don't remember off top of my head, better Google them.
