One of our Scott Legal lawyers received an approval on an O-1 petition that he recently worked on. The client was an architectural and interior designer who was being petitioned by a leading hospitality design firm and was in the United States as a student working at the firm during her Optical Practical Training (OPT) following her graduate studies. The success of this O-1 petition, along with many others, exemplifies the fact that it is not necessarily the number of years of experience that matters in an O-1 petition, but the quality and presentation of the evidentiary materials that matters. Despite the client’s relatively short work experience,  by accentuating the client’s key accomplishments and recognitions throughout the petition as well as deploying all the strategies and tactics to build an optimal O-1 petition, the case was approved within nine days of filing via regular processing.

    I come across your post as I am actively looking for the options to apply for o-1 visa.
    My name is Ankita and I am currently enrolled in masters in interior architecture at UCLA. My last quarter ends in March 2021 and I wanted to know the requirements for o-1 visa. What are the ways to make my applications strong that I have time till my OPT starts. I have been awarded scholarship and have won some design competitions. I understand I need to make my application stand out and I am seeking your advice about the same. I would greatly appreciate your assistance and hopefully get the visa.
