Are you sure about this:
"Since not everyone who is eligible will apply each month"
Perhaps they could if they had accurate numbers. They don't.
EB2I is not going to move between now and October 1st. If I didn't make that clear earlier, let me do so now.
Yes. That is well documented. I can't count the number of times the Visa Bulletin has explained that cutoff dates are moving faster than normal because large numbers of people who were eligible to apply, didn't. Keep in mind that with really old priority dates, there are a lot of things that come along like death, better job opportunity somewhere else, loss of interest, etc.
We are speculative on the movement from October, considering the new qualifying date thing if they do implement by then
Ron, that was a typo. It should have been Sep 2016 not Sep 2015
Thanks for the clarification. I was starting to think that there were new drugs being sold that I hadn't heard about.
Yes, and I want in on those too.
Take a number.
How would they know the number of available visa for EB2I category for that fiscal year because it depends on spillover/fall across which might not be known ahead of time?
Let's not waste the pills and give them to our friends at USCIS
what would the pill do to someone who feels like a King.... more crazy..... or get some sense
First, they would eliminate concurrent filing. Next, they would account for all of the approved I-140 petitions and classify them by beneficiary, priority date, preference, and country of charge. That should give them a very good idea of the potential demand. Actual filings would further refine those numbers.
Make them crazy and do something sensible
How many years would they need to do this task ?
You or I could implement this within 60 days. I have no idea how long they will take.
The only thing that will screw the numbers is porting (I know s_gan agrees). I would assume that if they can really refine the system, they would also be able to eliminate the double counting of an applicant in both categories once he/she has successfully ported.
double counting can be prevented even today.
Yes, but they do not do it as they are lazy and inefficient. I am saying that since they are cleansing the system, they should also do that from now on.
precisely the reason why I do not think modernization will serve the purpose.
