Topic: strategies for overcoming low citation counts in EB-1 at NSC

I was recently approved (EB-1B, less than 100 citations, NSC, PP)

You need to post your profile here for evaluation. To overcome your low citations, your petition must emphasize on your other strengths. Three years of (post PhD) research experience, publications in good journals, and review activities (journals, conferences, competitions) in addition to very strong independent letters are good enough to crack EB-1B if your petition is well written. Needless to say, in addition to these things, you must either be a tenure-track faculty or a scientist/researcher in a good company.

Topic: Currently on EB-2, going for EB1B, what are my chances?


Some of my colleagues who got their applications approved with similar profiles are encouraging me to apply. They all say that for my research field this is pretty good to get EB1B. So did the Chen group who emailed me yesterday. I am going to go ahead. Will let this forum know how it went.



I would definitely suggest that you do. If you have a permanent position with 3 years of research experience, a well drafted petition can get you through. Hire a good attorney (you got VC anyways, so no need to worry) and don't hesitate to pay. EB-1B acceptance rate is over 90% compared to EB-1A's 50%. The only roadblock would be the overall merit (Matter of Kazarian), but a seasoned lawyer can handle that. I have personally seen a number of EB1B approved petitions, some from physicians as well with very low citations. Good luck and keep the forum updated, but first update your tracker with your details. It will help future applicants like you on trackitt.

Topic: changing nature of job after getting green card.


I agree with you Hkrad. OP can change the job with his new found freedom, but he claims to be of exceptional ability then why changing to IT. HE has done his PhD in material sciences which is a booming field of study then why the sudden shift to CS. This shows the fraud happening even in the EB1A and B category, I request USCIS to take due cognizance of the situation.



In your humble opinion, what should have OP done? He clearly stated that he was let go and he tried hard to find faculty position in other schools, but he couldn't get one. He was jobless and had to support his family. Given his situation as the sole breadwinner of his family and jobless (at that time 4 years ago), it's justified that he explored options available to him based on his skill set. There's no fraud here.

However, it's quite clear from the tone of your message that you're very frustrated with the EB2 backlog. If IT related work should only be granted to CS major (according to you), you should rather urge the USCIS to practice caution while handing out H1B visas to IT engineers from India as most of them are from non-CS backgrounds like mechanical, industrial, civil, metallurgy, production, and chemical. Maybe it's time for introspection.

BTW, what's the point in replying to a thread that is 4 years old?

Topic: H1b-GC application must go to India


I am here after coming from vacation at home. Everything is changing in 1 month so much. They are saying 500000 till 1000000 h1b will be sent home. this is very bad news.There is good news in bad news also. They are saying all h1bs whose GC is filed can allow to have application and when time comes there application will be giving GC in India. I think it is a good idea for people after 6 years and if they have gc to go back and work in India for sometime and that will be good for them also as many jobs will be given for local people and they will not create new rules. Other wise everybody will be in problem . Everybody must be getting a chance. If 400000 people go back that jobs will be given to local people and other h1bs also will get a chance to take 6 years and gc application and go to India



Let's say all those jobs go to locals (aka USC/LPR) when you move to India, what would you show to the IO during AOS interview when you'll be asked to present your Supp-J? At the time of your AOS interview in India through CP, you won't have a job in the US as it's already taken up by a jobless local.

On a lighter note, from the tone of your message it appears that you are kind enough to move out of the US so that locals can get your jobs and that there are many unemployed locals (may be close to 400,000 if that's what you meant). Does that mean you have displaced them and now that you are moving out they will get the opportunity to work? Just curious to understand your post, please don't take it personally.

Topic: EB1B Club

Could be due to your area of work in the current company and how it's connected to your area of research in your PhD. If that's the case, you need to carefully craft your RFE response to show the relevance. Your profile looks fine for EB-1B otherwise.

Topic: Hindustan Times: Trump admin considers mass deportation.

and it says.... "An estimated 70% of these visas go to Indians — hired mostly by American companies such as Facebook, Microsoft and Google and some by American arms of Indian tech giants Infosys, Wipro and TCS."

Really? Does anyone know the actual (or close enough) distribution of H1Bs between American firms (FB, Google, MS) and Indian firms (Infy, Wipro, TCS)?

Topic: Any EB1A/EB1B movement in NSC this week?

My EB1B petition was approved at NSC recently, but it was premium processing. Online status shows that the application was received on Oct the 11th and approved on Oct the 13th. Another acquaintance who applied in October 2016 with regular processing at NSC just got an approval notice few days ago (after RFE), so there's definitely a movement for regular processing at NSC if that's what you are asking.
