Green Card for a Ph.D in Computer Science (a South Korean national)


I’m an incoming Ph.D student in Computer Science at New York University (starting Fall 2017), and was wondering how I might go about applying for a US Green Card as a Ph.D student, say in 2-3 years from now. I already have 1 publication at a top-tier journal, and completed/will complete internships at Google & Facebook. I’m willing to pay for a consultation fee if required. Many thanks in advance!

    Hi Jason, 1 publication is not enough by itself. Please have a look at the EB1A and EB2-NIW criteria on this website and ask further questions in this thread. Our forum consultation is free and is not intended to be a legal advice.
