Ok, now that the official April 2010 Visa Bulletin is out, my theory of predicting the cutoff dates turned out to be off by two months for China EB2. So I won’t bother you with my calculations. In short, I tried to use the data provided by the Visa Office and did rather straight math; it is apparent that VO was right when they said there were “other factors” in their determination of the dates. I suspect previous pattern of visa use plays a significant role in the process. So my conclusion? Even if VO releases the data every month, I still won’t be able to pinpoint what the cut-off dates would be. In a matter of fact, I think my visa bulletin graph can probably offer a better “prediction” than anything else I can think of.
