Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much again for your great work!

On May 29th, 2019, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Psychometrician in the Field of Education (Approval Notice).

General Field: Education

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Psychometrician

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Kansas

Approval Notice Date: May 29th, 2019

Processing Time: 7 months, 11 days

Case Summary:

Our client’s expertise in educational psychology and assessment has direct applications in the development of innovative educational policies that reduce achievement gaps and support academic success in the national educational system, and there is no denying that our client, a psychometrician from China, is progressing in the field of education. With numerous achievements under her name, our client, an expert in educational psychology and educational assessment, is indeed an influential researcher who is highly respected by her peers.

When our client first approached us to help her get a step closer to a green card via NIW (National Interest Waiver), our team carefully evaluated her credentials to ensure that we could build a solid case. We determined that we could detail 5 peer-reviewed journal articles, 5 encyclopedia book chapters, 1 monograph and the 29 times her work was cited. In addition, we thoroughly reviewed and summarized her research projects, which addresses some of the United State’s most pressing issues in the design and implementation of effective educational policies that facilitate student achievement and improve the overall state of education.

An important element of our client’s customized NIW petition packet consisted of six recommendation letters, all of which were contributed by other fellow experts in her field. These experts highlighted the fact that our client’s work is in the best interest of the US and that she should be allowed to continue conducting educational research in the country. According to one of these recommenders: “Educational and counseling psychology are of the utmost importance to United States interests. Insights from the field shed light onto student motivation, administrative practices, classroom management, and many other areas of education. Such knowledge is vital to continued improvement of educational outcomes in the nation, which is, in turn, critical to increasing citizens’ quality of life and preparing children to contribute in positive ways to society and the economy. [Client] has served this endeavor with her work on counseling and administrative psychology as well as her work on educational assessment. The advancements in educational assessment that her work has brought are critical to the measurement of educational progress in the United States”.

Exactly 7 months and 11 days after we filed the NIW petition to the USCIS, our client received notification of case approval. The approval of this petition is yet another example of our firm’s outstanding record of helping our clients get closer to US permanent residency. We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card process, and we thank her for letting us become a part of her success story.
