    Ron - I know it is dumb regular prediction question but I thought I would ask.

    If there is no changes in Visa Bulletin and if they follow the current pattern of moving the dates first three months starting next fiscal year and considering the demand data is 20K. (Not considering any spillover). What is your best bet on EB2 movement for the FY16? Not just specifically for October but by the end of FY16? Any chances of moving to 2012? Thanks!

    Hi Ron, Lets say its the latter(Stay with company for 1 yr after getting I-140 EAD/AP)...What are your thoughts on dependents of the I-140 approved beneficiary. Lets say X has an approved I-140 and Y is the spouse of X and currently working on H1b and his/her firm has not yet applied for PERM/I-140 etc or is in process. If and when the I-140 EAD/AP rule comes into play will the 1 year rule to stay with his/her current employer for spouse Y hold or will the 1 year rule apply only to X ?

    The one year rule will only apply to principal beneficiaries of approved I-140 petitions.

    What if we get a decent spillover say 5k? How will dates look like from OCT16-DEC16?

    5k is not a good number we need something like 10-15k min. Look at the SO for years 2008-2013

    There is just too much non-quantifiable porting from EB3 to EB2. As long as this continues, EB2I will continue to be backlogged.

    If Congress is willing to act on allowing doctors to port to EB1 then why not have a bill to allow STEM folks to port to EB1 with some clause.

    you can file in EB-1 whether you are a doctor or not, provided you qualify for it
