- Because you are an "owner"? No you are not! You are renting the house from the bank
- Because you have a backyard?- go out and rent a house. They are a dime a dozen, will cost you half the cost of your monthly mortgage payment
- Because you have peace of mind? Really. Read your other post on people getting laid off
- Because your (ok someone else's) kid asked if you are poor? Really? A kid's innocent question is going to make you gamble (that's what investing in an immovable asset is in your situation) away a decade of savings?
- Because you want to give your child the best possible childhood? Think about it, if things turn for the worse either in your economy/company/job (absolutely do not wish it on anyone), and you are forced to move/sell the house/get foreclosed upon etc., how much more have you hurt your family and traumatized them in your effort to give them a great childhood?
- How many nights of peaceful sleep have you lost lying awake wondering what you would do if you/your spouse lost a job, had to move etc.?
I still cannot understand how/why someone would buy a house in the bay area ($700K+ for a SFH in a minimally liveable area) and $1M+ in places like Cupertino.
I will enjoy my quality of life in my rented condo (with a rent 1/3rd of the monthly mortgage payment it would take to buy it) and take my 2 year old to the park if he feels like he needs a back yard. Dont need to mow the lawn either!
There is a perception on this board that renting => no quality of life. After going through some of the replies, I see that some are trying to convince themselves of their decision to buy a house.

Did any one of you have two different A#s (one on 140 and other on 485)?
I have two different A #s and in when I applied for AP and EAD, I had used the one on 485 and both were approved.
"Well educated and intelligent" - Who? Did you mean Durbin and Grassley?
Yes, I would like to see a new bill for reducing employment based backlog. I don't want to come across as a pessimist.

Thats what I told you friend. Don't waste your golden time on this thread. Keep away and think to improve your knowledge in understanding other's thoughts and ideas properly.:p
IV is already helping. The aim of IV is to eliminate retrogression so that everyone does not have to wait. We also understand that EB3 I is in a much greater mess than anyone else.
he says, his employer applied for few of his other colleagues too, but rejected. most amazingly, for one of his boss (1 or 2 levels above him) also they applied under EB1 but his app was rejected. unbelievable stuff. i guess the EB1 verification is random.
EB1 spillover may never come for some time in the future. The Indian IT companies are applying under EB1 for their PMs and Senior PMs (req: BS in any discipline + 6-7 yrs exp), labeling them as multi-national executives. They are also making the employee pay for the 140 and 485 so that the financial impact is reduced a lot by a potential rejection of the 140.
This is as much BS as labor sub. I think everybody here knows how tough it is to get EB1 classification for researchers. But what scrutiny is there for these "multi-national executives" ? All they have to do is spend some time in India or any other country as a PM or SPM, come to the US on H1B and promptly apply under EB1. :mad:

There are just too many fond memories to share in one post... but I do want to specially thank leo2606 who drove 70 miles to pick up myself, venkygct, vsraja and punjabi at the Dulles airport and then took us out for breakfast, then to the rally venue, then for lunch, finally to a hotel room we had booked for a quick shower, basically... like a shadow he was with us wherever we wanted to go! And... whenever we thanked him (and gdhiren who co-ordinated pickups/dropoffs for many others like the 4 of us) these guys, instead of saying something like "You are welcome", would profusely thank us for flying in!
Its people... like leo2606 and gdhiren.. and many others are the true strength of IV!

thanks again for your kind words. i did get a positive reply from a dean at my alma mater, a leading pvt university, that fully supports these positions. possibly an indication that we should be reaching out to US university deans to get their active support?
please feel free to edit / copy+paste both the chain email and the racism-response ... to meet any of your respective outreach needs
also, we have almost as many folks that have not called as those that did. why? oh why? just pick up the phone and leave at least 1 VM today!

It didn't make sense to me because they only took the right index print, photo, and signature as part of regular Code 3 biometrics, and this they should have transmitted electronically through CLAIMS the same day, i.e. June 19th. Going by what he said, they took the FP on June 19th, and TSC received it on July 24th...so it apparently took them more than a month to transmit the information :mad:
"the FP report was received on July 24th (which probably explains the July 25th LUD)".
can you explain the above some line more ? did USCIS receive the FP report on july 24 ? if yes and if everything is o.k. ..then you should be all set ..am I right ?? or do they have to do something more with the FP report --- I hope there is no namecheck here too

Thank you for your arguments and I dont think we can come to consensus on our beliefs. I will drive this issue from my end and see what I can do about it.
I always believed in Bucky's motto: "an experiment, to find what a single individual could contribute to changing the world and benefiting all humanity"
nyte_crawler I gave u green because I really appreciate you keeping the argument civilized even though we both differ in our ideas. Now just to take things a little further. You have pointed me that I am arguing to keep spill over as it is (in favour of EB2) because that will help me. I would argue the same that when you say immediate help for EB3 I feel that is because that will help your case. Tell me how does it help Eb3 with PD 2004 and further. Rather it would be in their interest to cross port to EB2 since they directly become current rather than wait for spill over to reach their PD which is good 3-4 years away. So my argument is there are three interest groups here
2) Eb3 prior to 2004
3) Eb3 2004 onwards.

Looks like approvals has slowed down further.
This is why at the end of the year there are unused visas. All due to inefficiencies of USCIS.
We are doomed.
My PD is Mar-04, RD=14Aug07
On USCIS status, it says.." On October 11, 2007, we received this I485..." .
Processing time for TSC is Aug07.. Does this mean my case will not processed now?
