If anyone would like to share their experience (and comment on any discrepancies/inaccuracies) please feel free to add to this thread. Note: I have heard there is quite a lot of corruption and bribery involved to get a "guaranteed" approval for this visa. I could be completely wrong on that as I have no personal experience with getting this visa. I'm also not sure what happens if you don't make the list for the year you applied....though I would think that it would roll over to the next year.
