I work for employer A. My employer filed my H1 in April 2014,  and it got selected in USCIS lottery. Now, I have a valid H1-B petition for employer A which is valid till 2017. I have not got my passport stamped yet and  hence have not  travelled to the United States.
 
When I leave my employer A, he will revoke my existing petition.
 
I am about to pursue my masters (MBA) from the US, and plan to go there on an F1 (Student) visa.  I have the following query. Would appreciate if any one can help me with this.
 
After I complete my graduation in 2017, I would need my new employer (B), to file for my H1.   I need to know, when employer B files for my H1, will it be a new application all together, and  my application will again undergo the lottery system used by USCIS or will my application be exempted from Cap (Lottery) since I previously had an approved petition for employer A, though it has been revoked now and  the 3 year period(2014-2017)  for which my petition was valid is  over.

My friend is in the same boat. Did you got any relevant answer? His petition is revoked just 3days back. If he wishes to get into a job again, is he cap-exempt? Your answer may be of great help.
