Donn know why i have three rounds of interview.I could hear couple of rejections before me.So I was in the wrong very much tensed.

One main reason i thought can be, i am with the same company since 6 years.[Thats the reason i had lot of questions regarding projects..and all]

Another reason is my H1b petition was applied with my old passport and i went to interview with my new passport.[For security reasons they can kill us with multiple questions ]

Donn know ,i cannot see any other reasons.But for sure i donn think every h1b interview is similar.Coz,i read couple of posts in ******** and murthy,i see hardly people having interviews for long time.
