MU Law Analysis

We were again encouraged to see slow, steady improvement of dates in most categories. Philippine and All Other EB-3 moved ahead one month. India EB-3 advanced one month. We would not be surprised to see a few more small progressions this fiscal year in these categories. China EB-3 unfortunately did not move ahead.

There was modest progression of All Other EB-2 dates of two weeks, although India and China EB-2 remained the same as last month.
