Hi psub1484, I am planning to apply for EB1A. Would you mind sharing your recommendation letters with me? That would be immensely helpful, since affording the lawyer would be very difficult for me! :(((

You can mail me at [email protected] Thanks a lot in advance!

The lawyers advised not to as it is the dreaded officer 0214. So they said its better to not waste time on replying. I have already refiled my case as a fresh application

@nomad1484, when chen asked you to withdraw your petition the first time, did she at least send you a strategy. The thing is she already sent us the strategy but was mentioning that this Officer is very difficult. She didn't give any statistics and when we looked at the Chinese forums, only those who have been asked of 1000 citations by this officer were rejected. Luckily he didn't mention about the citations. So we are not sure how to proceed. We applied concurrently and really want to take our chance.

In my case, VC said that out of 8-10 cases with this officer, all attempts to reply to the RFEs had led to rejection, even for profiles with 600-700 citations and 20 publications. So she said even if we replied to the RFE, rejection was pretty imminent. So in order to remove any bias on future applications due to denial, she said withdrawing was the best option.
For your case, I would suggest you schedule a phone appointment with the attorneys and ask in detail about prior cases of RFE with respect to your officer. Coz when I spoke about my RFE case back then, she gave details which she had not mentioned in the message through her online server.
So based on inputs after your phone conversation you can make a decision.

Hi nomad1484,
Congrats on ur success path even after lot of repeated withdrawing.
Could please let me know how did you ask Vchen about the officer 0214 and got the reply that out of 8-10 cases with this officer, all attempts to reply to the RFEs had led to rejection.
I want to ask about my officer cases too as i haven't yet received my Rfe response and in fear of the officer strategy.
Thank you.

@susmi
Firstly I googled for "officer 0214 RFE" and found forums where people had written about rfe from this officer. With this information I also set up a phone call with one of VC's attorneys and asked about the strategy. The attorney himself told that all the cases from their office having RFE from this officer was unreplyable. In most cases even after replying, the officer gave a NOID. So the attorney suggested to withdraw and refile. In general, any officer specifically saying "you should have 1000s of citations" or "people in your field have garnered 50000/100000 citations and you have few 100" means he/she has already made up the mind to deny and so best way around tem would be to withdraw
