      Congrats! I'm guessing you were on Premium Processing too?

    Postcompletion OPT ending July. Filed with PP. No updates yet. End of the road?
    Apr 14 15
    • New / Eng elot
      Haha this sucks. But lets hope our BAL attorneys are lazy and sending our emails out late.
      Apr 14

      Also do you know what happens to F1 and OPT EAD card status when you file for I-485 (GC) with EAD/AP? Does your F1 status get invalidated?

      Just have to wait it out I guess, till the PP kicks in on May 20

    • Amazon colt$3
      May 20 (Jun 5 at most, since it is 15 days) is too late for me.
      - Need to find a new role in a new team in a month,
      - Break up,
      - Sell the furniture
      :-/

    Apr 23 14
    • New !=faang
      That's great. I assume you already received the Receipt?
      Apr 23
    • Amazon kaisanBaa
      This was not pp and I have not recieved any receipt yet. At least fragomen hasn't forwarded that information yet
      Apr 23
    • I got an sevp update today as well. Same non pp. Fragomen hasn't informed me yet. Opt is expiring before Sept 2019
      Apr 23
    • Microsoft kth
      For those who got sevp update. Please let us know whether OPT is expiring before Sept 2019?
      Apr 23
    • Amazon kaisanBaa
      My opt was expiring in June now updated to sept
      Apr 23
    • Microsoft kth
      Are you in 1st year of OPT and expiring on June or is it the last year of OPT extension ?
      Apr 23
    • 1st year of opt. Applied for extension.
      Apr 24
    • Amazon kaisanBaa
      Mine is last year but it should reflect if its 1st year and extensions is not yet approved
      Apr 24
    • EMC Qblck

    • New !=faang
      When did you see the sevis update?
      Apr 25
  • Afiniti RzsG54
    The case history tab of fragomen started showing a new step named notifications for me but it says not completed.

    Does any one knows what this means? it was not showing first. is it a standard process to add notification tab as blank or and update it latter as a standard or does this means its picked that s why it started appearing to me as blank and will be updated soon?

    can anyone help me around this.
    Apr 16 9
    • Uber Whoosh!
      What does the step before that says? Awaiting decision (In Progress) for me.
      Apr 16
    • Afiniti MAmt71
      Yes its same for me and says same for me. Awiting result decision pending.
      Has anyone with non advance degree received reciept yet and prepmium processing or without premium?
      Apr 16
    • Cisco lastTimer
      I can see the new notification tab too, looks like portal changes are being done from fragomen.
      Apr 17
    • Nvidia Coolant
      Hello
      My H1b got picked and a new tab shows up above awaiting decision. The new is for" email receipt notice received from USCIS"..MY application is premium
      Apr 17
    • Cisco lastTimer
      @coolant - if its true.. then its a great news !! but I have seen the same notification tab for Post OPT processing case as well ..
      Apr 17
    • Nvidia Coolant
      I also got an email with receipt number from Fragomen before the website was updated
      Apr 17
    • Afiniti RzsG54
      @coolant - Congratulations.. you were filling with advance degree or regular one?
      Apr 17
    • ServiceNow curious if
      @coolant do you know which processing center it is?
      Apr 17
    • Nvidia Coolant
      No SEVP update and yes premium

      Did u apply in the California center? And when did you lawyers receive the receipt notice
      Apr 15

    • Affirm AffirmX
      @codedoctor does your SEVP portal reflect the updated OPT end date too?
      Apr 15
    • Symantec codedoctor
      Not yet!
      Apr 15
    • Affirm AffirmX
      Phew. So, no update yet doesn't mean it's the end of the road.

      I have applied w/ pp too, but I haven't heard back. Master's cap.
      Apr 15
    • Symantec codedoctor
      Yeah I'm sure you'll hear back soon. May 20 is when they'll start processing the applications applied under PP. So you could hear back from them anytime before that. We can never fully guess what their process is.
      Apr 15
    • Affirm AffirmX
      True that. Is this is your first attempt?
      Apr 15
    • Symantec codedoctor
      Yup!
      Apr 15
  • ServiceNow curious if
    I have five friends waiting for h1b this year and all have Fragomen as their lawyer. No one has heard back yet!

      When did you get the notification?
      Apr 16
    • GE meddoc
      On Friday April 12th. Status on Fragomen Portal was updated, no formal communication from Fragomen. I contacted them to confirm

      LinkedIn filed with PP!
      Apr 15
    • Microsoft hGCf22
      Mine was filed with pp🤞🏻Hope I can hear some good news this week
      Apr 15
    • Dropbox systest
      Many companies only file PP if your OPT is expiring and need the cap gap I20
      Apr 16
    • Amazon jefwillkey
      Not necessarily. Amazon did not file ours under pp. Both Fragomen and BAL denied pp. Said they'll upgrade to pp if picked in lottery. Fml! I was ready to pay out of pocket but they said it is Amazon's policy.
      Apr 16
    • FactSet hanabi0
      Fragomen denied because Amazon has a policy of not filing PP concurrently with H-1B, even if it's your last attempt and your EAD expires in July
      Apr 16
    • Amazon jefwillkey
      Yep
      Apr 16
    • GE meddoc
      But what difference does it make to file in PP or to later convert it to PP. USCIS will cash the check only if the case gets picked up in lottery
      Apr 17

    OP
    Yeah
    Apr 12 3

      OP
      Yeah
      Apr 12
    • Maybe that’s why they know it faster, I have a colleague who has a master and PP found out their h1b got picked.

  • Estee Lauder smel
    My EAD doesn't expire until 2020 so I guess that's why my SEVP hasn't changed?

    Also, anyone with FRAGOMEN heard back?
    Apr 15 7
    • Uber Whoosh!
      I haven’t heard back from FRAGOMEN yet.
      Apr 15

      Thank you Whoosh! Did they do PP for you?
      Apr 15
    • Uber Whoosh!
      Yes, they did do PP. I am on CAP-GAP.
      Apr 15
    • GE meddoc
      Mine was filed by Fragomen. Got a survey request for Milestone completion on Friday. I contacted them on Monday as the case tracker showed receipt number and USCIS case status. The lottery got picked up, they were notified on Friday and didn’t pro actively inform me.
      Apr 16
    • Uber Whoosh!
      Hey meddoc, Was the application filed in PP? Are you in Masters Cap? Are you in CAP GAP? This will help me analyze if it is end of road for me. Also if you are on CAP GAP, did your SEVP portal get updated?
      Apr 16

    Did anyone see the dates on their SEVP portal change? I heard from my company lawyer on Friday (4/12) about the lottery selection, but there is no change on my SEVP dates yet. I had applied in PP.
    Apr 17 3
    • Uber Whoosh!
      Are you on CAP-GAP? It only shows up for CAP-GAP eligible.
      Apr 17
    • New AefS63
      I guess I will get in CAP-GAP (my OPT ends in July) if there is no RFE. At this point, I have no idea what is the status of my application other than being picked up in the lottery.
      Apr 18
    • New AefS63
      Hi all I got the SEVP update today saying it is extended till September 30th. Does this mean, I did not (not going to) get any RFE?
      Apr 25
  • Amazon colt$3
    And at least 3 people in Google got emails about H1 being picked too.
    Apr 14 1
    • Affirm AffirmX
      I am emailing my lawyer tomorrow. :/
      Apr 14
  • Amazon colt$3
    **side note: It could be that USCIS is slow at emailing receipts too :-/ **

    It looks like USCIS started sending out emails for Premium Processing applicants who were picked.
    A friend's lawyer(Google, BAL) contacted him saying they got email from USCIS about him being picked.

    Apparently, my friend says the email was sent out from USCIS today (April 14). But could be very well that lawyer emailed him today and USCIS sent out the email on Friday.

    It was his last chance too, and he had Advanced Degree.

    My ead expires before June. Today I saw sevp update to extend until June 1. Given that the lottery is over and they are updating today, does extending only until June 1st mean I didn't get picked?
