Posting an update to hopefully keep up the morale of folks who have an RFE. Today my H1 visa transfer was approved.

I received a specialty occupation RFE. Lawyers took almost 2 months to reply. Today received electronic notification via myuscis that the visa was approved.

Hang in there guys.

      It appears so. This was the first time I ever received an RFE after multiple extensions etc previously.

      It could also be that MBAs get more RFEs? Because it is not technically STEM, unless you did MBA finance and worked in a financial firm.

      I was told by a lawyer that RFEs are being handed out so companies will have to spend more money on H1Bs and will generally start to not sponsor anymore. So, RFEs are all over the place and often times not warranted.

      How so? They did have to produce quite a lot of documentation. Either way I don't much mind it allowed me to get through end of fiscal at MSFT and I'll get my bonus payout.
