OPT after green card application

Published Apr 3,2015 By Regina

Hey guys. I am a PhD student at Johns Hopkins and I am thinking of applying a green card right now. If, for some reason I do not get it, could that jeopardize my application for OPT after I graduate, since I have expressed an intent to immigrate with my green card application?

I am a post-doctoral research scholar. Graduated with a PhD in Dec 2014. I am on F1-OPT which ends in July (2015). I applied for an OPT extension last week. I want to apply for a green card using the NIW (Self-Petition).

My questions are :
1. Am I eligible whilst my OPT extension case is pending? Or should I apply after July (once I receive my OPT extension).

2. Can I apply for a green card using the NIW channel when I am on OPT (F-1) in the first place.

Thank you.
