Pretty much all top U.S. bschools now are STEM-qualified, meaning that graduates of these programs seeking employment in the U.S. have the opportunity of staying here for up to six years total (an extra three years beyond the standard H-1B). [UPDATE! A careful reader of the blahg pointed out that this may not be the full picture! Please see the comments below for their thoughtful contribution!!]
Note! We are not immigration experts! The information here is our best understanding of how this stuff works. You’ll get plenty of guidance from your school once you’re admitted!! Or, some BSers may find that paying for the services of a qualified immigration attorney is a worthwhile investment, depending on any complexities of your particular case.

The tl;dr is that it’s going to be easier to jump through a lot of these hoops — there will still be hoops, but they won’t be so difficult to get through, and they won’t be changing every six months.
