DV-Lottery selectee with outdated incorrect information in DV Lottery Application form

New York, NY |

A company I paid years ago for filling on my behalf the application form for the DV-Lottery filled outdated information and stated I have only a high school diploma by the time I already had a University Degree, and I have been selected for further processing in order to obtain a green card.
Should I fill the DS-230 with the outdated info saying I only completed high school, and explain I actually had a University degree at the interview, or should I fill the DS-230 form with the accurate information and recognize the mistake at the time of filling the lottery form?

Always accurate info.


I agree with Deborah, you must always use accurate information. Using the incorrect information will only lead to problems.
