I am currently waiting for the results of H1B Lottery which was conducted on last April. Is there anyone here who already receive the results? I couldn't slept well lately due to this lottery results.
Yes, 3 in my company, so some results have already fallen. But you must cool down and resume quiet sleeping, the lottery process may continue for long, up to september, so it is useless to stress out for such a long period.
Hmm... seems that my employer didn't apply H1B Premium Processing for me... I found that for non H1B Premium Processing, applicants must wait until no later than June 2, 2008. I guess I need to keep my fingers crossed until then.
I guess most of the H1B Premium Processing applicants know the results. For others it may take till June to know the results.
No, you are completely wrong: Premium Processing only means you will have the result faster when it is available, kind of 2 days instead of one week, but Premium Processing DOES NOT change anything about H1B lottery. All H1B petitions are equi-probable against lottery, which means any petition stands the very same chances to be random selected whatever it is Premium Processing or not.
As you said, good luck anyway.

Hi Eric Lemaitre
I didn't say that Premium Processing will make difference for the lottery but if any one applied under Premium Processing they will know the result early and most of them already know their result whether their application got selected or not selected in the lottery.
It is most likely that application might have been rejected if no notice is received by end of May. I can give one tip to know it faster. You can contact the person who gave the cheques for your application and inquire whether the amount has been deducted. If it is deducted than, that is it you are selected.
