My first rfe was after i140 that translated to denial. Got another rfe in refilling. I was like f*koff. I spent money on education, bought assets and now I get this. As a result, I have moved to cold north. Happy so far ..though pay cut.

Thats not true..my brother got interview call from India and they actually processed his visa and flight tickets and hotel just for the interview .

Did the lawyers tell what’s the RFE? What is the job description- Business or Technology or Strategy ??

I believe your case attorney should reach out to you soon and give you an estimation for the timeline. They would also reach out for documents if there are needed. Nowadays Rfe are very common, so just relax.

Very common. I got 2 in the last year and got through both without any issues.

How fast is too fast to get an offer? I had two easy interviews (founders only) and got an offer $20k higher than asking in under 72 hours from first call. It's a very small 9yo company, very niche product, and I’m finding no behind-the-scenes information (doesn't even show up in Glassdoor.) Two other prospects are going very well, but still have 3+ rounds to go for each. Did I just hit the jackpot, or is this too good to be true? Would you take the offer, try vetting them further, or run?
