Q: So there is a little pre-screening that goes on before they toss it into the pile of 65,000 applications?
A: That’s right. USCIS must go through all the applications that are received. Under the regulations, if USCIS receives more than the amount allotted for that year, it must accept all petitions up to the first five days of April. After April 5th, the lottery will be held.
