Well, being able to show you have "formal training" goes a long way to the folks at the border, it seems to say more than just having "experience" - they seem to think you need a diploma or degree to be a systems analyst, that you cant just go learn it on the job. Also, there have been reports of crack-downs on TN1's, because so many people are heading also depends on the border guard. You meet up with someone who's having a bad day and they'll not think twice of putting you thru the wringer, just for the hell of it.
