The 'Cinderella' DV-2014 Lottery: 'Winners' to Get Another Dance at the Ball

"The U.S. diversity (DV) green card lottery opens on October 2, 2012 and applications can be submitted until November 3, 2012.  This year the U.S. government will register over 100,000 immigrant-hopefuls and issue 55,000 green cards to lucky winners.  Unfortunately, as with many government programs, the DV program has a deceptive appearance of simplicity, but has numerous pitfalls." - Rahul Soni, Sept. 25, 2012.
