Is it risky to study Masters Degree from USA when H1B visa is not guaranteed due to H1B Visa Lottery? That was the question from Naveen.
Here’s the actual question
With the lottery system of H1B, how can we take a bold step and pursue Masters Degree from America?
I am confident that I can perform well in a job interview and get a good job and good grades. But if H1B is not confirmed then we can effectively work only 29 months.Why then are people going forward with MS in USA?
Making me rethink my MS plan totally. Please offer some perspective here. Isn’t it risky?
Risk vs H1B Visa
It’s a valid question. All students, their parents will ask the same the questions 1000’s of time before committing to spend thousands of dollars or taking our eduction loan to study in America.
H1B Visa 2015 was issued based on application selected via random lottery selection. H1b Lottery is expected even this H1B Visa 2016 season as well.
So, there’s some uncertainty among students and parents about investing boat loads of money ( 10 to 30 lakhs ).
FACT : Majority of Indian students decide to study in U.S.A. depending on U.S. Economy and job market. We have seen that time and time again.
