For Indians - does EB3 or EB2 make any difference? Can someone provide a honest opinion? I am so tired of searching on the internet and not getting anything.

EB2 will take maybe 70 years to clear if your priority date is today. EB3 might take 90. In my opinion we are screwed either way.


^ I'm not dicking around. Google a little bit if you think otherwise




Last I saw it was like 11 for eb2 and 35 years for eb3. Honestly the rules have to change for it to make sense even anymore. If they don't change by 2020 I'm going to be thinking of a Canada or a U.K. It's just not worth it anymore.


EY1 is correct. It’s not a linear wait time, and with retrogression there’s no guarantee it ever will follow a normal pattern.


D2 u cannot subtract today's date with the current PD in process to estimate wait time. As K2 says, it isn't a linear wait time. I'm amazed that 98% of Indians in the US are blissfully aware of how dire the visa backlog really is.



4-5 years of difference, keeps changing tho

Hi all. Went through an interview with a pay range of 150-160k; I provided my range as 165-175k and was offered 135k. The manager said he can get to my range given performance.

What sort of performance metrics/guidelines should I set before I accept? Also, any suggestions on how I can improve other benefits instead (PTO, etc.)? Thank you in advance!


When we’re all comparing/complaining about hours at the end of the year are we including pro bono hours in that total?

Trying to determine if I should’ve tried to pick up more billable work to stay in the middle of the pack (i.e. not interested in partnership, just trying not to get canned).
