My EB2 was rejected initially. I received my education at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. My associateship in the Institute was considered by the Indian government to be the equivalent of a Master Degree in Accounting. Therefore, I filed for an EB2 visa that required a Master Degree on the labor certificate.
When my application was denied, my attorney insisted on having my evaluation completed by Sheila Danzig. I did not know who she was, but my attorney stated she was my best chance. My attorney was correct.
Using an expert opinion letter and a document evaluation, Ms. Danzig’s agency was able to demonstrate that my associateship was equal to a U.S. Master of Science Degree in Accounting. The motion to reopen (MTR) filed by my attorney was approved as a result of the foreign degree evaluation completed by Ms. Danzig and the professionals at Career Consulting International.
