      Master and Phd candidates are also going first right? Since they have a separate pool.

    Check sevis, if they update your opt end date to 9/30 that means you get it

      does the new SEVP portal work as well?

      I believe that is only for cap gap candidates

    My SEVP Portal got updated today on April 20th from 07/15 to 09/30. I was disheartened on Monday hearing other people getting the sevis change. Wait till you get the rejection letter. I am still not 100% sure if this means my lottery is picked, so I’ll wait till i get a receipt from employer

      Thank you saw that yesterday.

      ~1/5 probability for the first category & ~1/3 for the second/regular

    • Monsanto drool🤤
      How did you compute these probabilities? Because I don’t think USCIS publishes MS vs. regular numbers.

      Apr 23, 2018
    • @PiYV60 Did his sevp portal have authorization end date updated to sep 30 ... If so, when was it updated ??

    I don’t see any update on SEVP. How authentic is this SEVP thing
    Apr 19, 2018 3
    • Microsoft doctorhawk
      seems pretty authentic for anyone chosen in advanced cap & eligible for cap-gap
      Apr 19, 2018
    • Intel soapywater
      Yes, even i was doubting this sevp update thing. But it seems legit. A friend of mine in same boat got updated, but mine didn't, my opt expires on July 15

    I think there is little hope for AD at this point but for none AD, receipts are still being given out.

      ADs get included in the draw along with non-ADs for the main draw (65K)
