Sign of an improving economy?  22,323 cap-subject H-1B petitions have already been received by the USCIS in the first three days since H-1B season started.  25% of these cases are for U.S. advanced degrees.  The number of filings received in the first three days is almost double the number of filings received during the same time last year.  We can expect the cap to be reached much sooner this fiscal season than last season, where it was reached in November.
