Hi Ravi,
I mentioned awards with criteria to say how competitive it was to prove how I was extraordinary compared to peers. I mentioned NASA proposals that got selected and in all how many suhc proposals were selected in all of US. Hope this helps.

Hi Hopegcd,

I have self-filed an EB1A and RFE has been issued recently, but haven't received it yet. Previously also I had self-filed an EB1A in 2007 and got denied in 2008. I am planning to self-file an NIW too before I submit my response to this new RFE. I am willing to share some of my experience with you if that's going to help you or both of us. I had 19 publications in journals with IF varying from 8.0 (some of which were invited reviews), an editorial board member for a journal (IF 0.9), and regular reviewer for two of the best journals in my filed of expertise (IF >2.0) in 2007. I also had some smaller awards and one international fellowship back then, Diplomate of one of the professional boards, memberships in several professional societies. This time I had 26 publications (23 of which as first author), a book chapter, and total citations of about 160. I have also submitted 3 more papers after I filed my EB1A, but do not know their acceptance/rejection status yet. If you are interested you can contact me at [email protected] Thanks, Dr. Sharma

Hi raaj,
We upgraded mine to PP on July 22 and there was no update at all. All of a sudden we got the check back on 08/06 saying they couldn't tie the check to my application and in the evening my status changed to denial notice sent.
