Predict H1B Visa FY 2015 Cap Count. Win $20 Gift Card

20 US DollarsP.S. This contest is over.

H1B Visa FY 2015 season will open from April 1, 2015.

I have done H1B visa cap count predictions in the previous years using various metrics.

I thought it will be a good idea to involve Happy Schools Fans to predict the number of H1B Visa applications that could be filed during first business days of filing with USCIS in April.
