However, I exited the US in Dec 2006 and haev been out of the US since Dec 2006. I want to apply for an H1 again.Will I come under the H1 quota or will I be exempt?

    Based on the information provided, you will not be exempted from the H-1B cap. However there is a “Masters Cap” for those that graduated from an eligible Masters program in the US to which the first 20000 would be exempted.
