According to the USCIS, as of April 9, 2012, only one week after petitions were first accepted, the agency has received 17,400 out of 65,000 available cap-subject H-1B petitions for FY-2013 and 8,200 out of 20,000 available petitions under the H-1B Master’s Cap Exemption.

If you are a cap-subject organization that wishes to file an H-1B on behalf of a qualified foreign-national, this would be a good time to do it.  H-1B petitions are being filed at a faster pace than in recent years.
