EB2 NIW or EB1A

Published Oct 27,2014 By cryptic00

I am trying to decide if I should apply under EB2-NIW or EB1A and thought of bouncing some ideas off here.  My credentials are as follows:

– PhD Genetics; 6 peer reviewed articles in international journals (35 citations total), 3 of them first author (latest paper has more than 1200 views so far, but no citations yet); 17 years of experience in research; one international fellowship, one national award (USDA) and one regional early career travel award; ~10 talks at national and international meetings (3 invited); Wrote open source, scientific data analysis software which has been cited 3 times, and downloaded more than 240 times all over the world; Peer reviewer for 4 international journals.

I am pretty sure that my NIW will sail through, but I am on OPT and have only one year left.  I have already used up 5.5 years of my six year H1B.  If my NIW 140 goes through, I don’t know if I can file for H1 extension based on that.  Otherwise, my only other option is EB1A, which I don’t know if I have sufficient credentials for.

I would appreciate any feedback.  Thanks.
