H-1B cap numbers as of July 1, 2011:
Steady usage of the Bachelor's degree H1b quota with about 1,000 more petitions received since last count, resulting in 18,400 cases received as of July 1, 2011.
The H1B advanced degree cap has advanced by about 600 cases resulting in 11,900 H-1B petitions received as of July 1, 2011.
I'll continue to keep everyone apprised of the numbers so H-1B applicants and H-1B employers can continue to plan their petitions wisely. ---ecf
