Default Eb3

I noticed that for EB3 it moved 15 days ahead, from Oct 1,2001 to Oct 15,2001. Anyways, it is nothing compared to the backlog that they have.

I always thought 2001/2002 maybe the years where less number of people would have applied due to recession. So PDs should move faster. Not sure why there are so many applications in that time period?

Hmmm - going by the sheer numbers there could be a lot. In past a lot of 2002, 2003 petitions were approved when dates were fluctuating but I guess there could be a lot more.

Lightbulb

USCIS is giving only approx 3600 for EB3-I (No carry over from EB1/EB2). At this speed, it will takes years to flush-out 2001/2002 PD. I am one of july 2001 filer to be flushout. oneway or another (Approve or Deny).

Additional Visa numbers only will ease the pain. I don't want anyone has to go through 7.5-8 years of wait.

because EB3 then was not as retrogressed (infact it was pretty much moving at a good pace), the company lawyers were more inclined to submit an EB3 labor even for a candidate that could apply in EB2. EB3 was more safer and less prone to denial. That must have caused the EB3 numbers to go up. Not until 2005 did I personally see a mad rush for EB2.

Just my 2 cents. I cannot be completely positive this is what happened, but it could have.
