Hi,
I have a MBBS degree in medicine from a major University in Australia and am currently working at Massachusetts General Hospital (one of the top hospitals in the US) for the past 5 years. I have approximately 100 citations from 10 peer reviewed articles and 3 presentations at national meetings. I am currently principal investigator on 2 research protocols. What do you think are my changes of succeeding in getting the EB-1 green card?

I have and engineering and MBA degree from India. I have 12 years of experience in total out of which 7 years have been in the US. I have worked as an Equity analyst at Goldman Sachs covering a sector and now working for a pension fund investing in the same sector. i have multiple recommendation letters from Goldman as well as CEO's/CFO's from the various companies in my sector about the knowledge and skills for that sector. At Goldman I published research reports on my sector helping clients make investment decisions on companies in my sector. Can a case be made for my green card under EB1? thanks.

I doubt it, but you never know. Review my video on EB-1A on our EB-1A page here.

Dear Mr. Khanna,

Can you comment on my eligibility for EB-1B? I am a tenure track faculty at a small university in Wisconsin, with 10 publications (300 Google Scholar citations), and over a dozen conference presentations.

Thanks,
GG

Hello,
I am currently working as a research fellow on F1 OPT and my employer is considering filing for EB1. My question is, can the transition be done from F1 OPT to EB1 and in case my application does not go through can I come back to renew my F1 status to continue a PhD in the future?

Thank you in advance.

Rushikesh.

Rushikesh ji, there is nothing in law that stops an F-1 student from directly filing for a green card. But, exhibiting immigrant intent while on an F-1 visa can raise some issues that should be discussed and planned for with your lawyers.
