Visa Interview Date: 05 Jan 2012
Visa Type: H1B (First - CAP Exempt; Academic)
Outcome: 221(g) pink slip for further administrative processing. Not surprised as I have a PhD in Bioengineering from USA, and work as a professor in bio-related research currently. The VO mentioned it was mandatory processing since my area of work is on the TAL. I had to undergo the same for my F1 visa renewal
Post-Interview Information: Jan 11, 2012 received email that passport was being sent.
Will send you an update if visa was issued.
