62,900 H-1B Petitions Received as of December 11, USCIS Appears to be Receiving 500 Per Day

In quick succession, the USCIS has updated its count of the number of H-1B petitions received in the past week three times. The statistics indicate that we are in the last days of availability for this Fiscal Year, and that the number of petitions filed has accelerated rapidly to nearly 500 a day. With just over 2,000 H-1Bs remaining, it is likely that USCIS will announce this week that it has received sufficient number of petitions to exhaust the Fiscal Year 2010 H-1B allotment of 65,000. See below:

Petitions received as of December 8 - 61,500
Petitions received as of December 10 - 62,500
Petitions received as of December 11 - 62,900
