Apart from the fact that chosing people because they come from one country rather than another seems strange for more than one reason, I am surprised that such matters are decided by lottery ! However, being a Canadian, there are few countries I would be interested to move to, so it is only the human part of me that finds this interesting...
Thank you Monica for this info.

You\'re right, but the purpose of the diversity lottery is just that -- to bring in a \'touch\' of color, which is sometimes good, sometimes bad, but doesn\'t fall under any rigid category.

If we recall, Darwin\'s evolution is based on random diversity, so they must be on to something...

Any idea when is the best time to apply? Aug 23, 2003

Nov. 1 would be the jam of all jams.
Hey, if we got lucky, let's meet together under the Statue of Liberty? Monica?

The important thing is, don't apply twice! Aug 23, 2003

Or have family members apply for you as a 'favor.'

Thank you Aug 24, 2003

Thank you very much Monika. Their decision to apply only on the internet will raise the price of the Internet-Cafe places in my country, especially for those who do not speak English... Nevertheless, thank you again for letting all of us know about this change.
Have a nice evening/day all of you,
Borana
