    Hi Ron,
    My job qualifies for EB2 (meaning it requires Bachelors + 5 years or Masters + 2 years). I have a 3 year bachelor degree from india and 2 year masters degree from reputed regionally accredited university in USA.

    I have a WES evaluation done for my 3 years Bachelor degree which stated that I am equivalent of Bachelors Degree from a regionally accredited university in USA. Although I have the WES evaluation which states my 3 years Bachelor degree as USA Bachelors equivalent, I dont want to attach it in my I140 because I am afraid that USCIS will unnecessarily make noise about my 23 years bachelors inspite of having my 2 years Masters degree from regionally accredited USA university.

    Please advise in this regard on what is the best thing to do ? Should i attach my WES evaluation for 3 year bachelor degree or not ? If i don't attach will USCIS create any problems ?

    Thanks,
    Sam

    If you have a master's degree from an accredited U.S. school, then your undergraduate degree doesn't matter. You have a U.S. advanced degree. That qualifies you for EB2.

    Hi Ron,

    I have 3 year B.Sc[Computer Science] from India and 14+ years experience in IT industry. I am planning pursue online MBA in Information Technology Management from Southern New Hampshire University. So If I pursue MBA, then I will qualify for EB2, correct?

    If your school is accredited, you should be fine
