Success Stories: Data Analyst in New Jersey with 108 Citations in the Field of Computer Science Secures EB1A Approval in 9 Days (PP Requested)


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much! I really appreciate your help. I am so glad that I had chosen you as my attorney for the I-140.”

On May 10th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Data Analyst in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Data Analyst

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: May 10th, 2017

Processing Time: 9 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Exactly 9 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a data analyst from China, the USCIS approved his case. Our client did not have to wait the expected 4-9 months for his case to be adjudicated because he paid the USCIS an additional $1225 for Premium Processing (PP). Cases filed with PP will have action taken on them within 15 calendar days.

Proving our client’s extraordinary ability:

Our client undoubtedly possesses strong credentials, making him a suitable candidate for EB1A. However, he needed our help to prove it to the USCIS. These are some of the points we focused on to establish that he is an asset to the field of computer science as well as to the United States:

  • We listed the 25 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles in his name– a productive and exemplary record compared to that of other researchers in the mutual field of computer science.
  • Using Google Scholar and similar sites such as Scopus, we confirmed that our client’s publications had collected 108 citations at the time of filing, confirming that his work is recognized and respected by other computer scientists.
  • We also noted the 7 times our client had assessed the work of his peers. As only the cream of the crop are invited by scientific journals to conduct peer reviews, our client’s peer review record speaks volumes of his leadership role in the field.

Supporting our case:

To back up our argument that our client should secure EB1A approval, our client enlisted the help of his peers. He asked them to contribute recommendation letters, and the six letters he gathered confirmed the significance of his work on the development of algorithms for data mining integrity verification, privacy-preserving data publishing, network performance analysis, and decentralized data management. According to one of these recommenders: “[Client] is a gifted researcher who has contributed and will continue to contribute to our knowledge and technical infrastructure, and he is someone to whom we should be grateful for his choice to remain in our country.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A petition approval, and we thank him for choosing us to represent his case. We also wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of computer science here in the US.
