kumarc123, I think lot of EB3s who are waiting since 2002, have definitely moved ahead in their careers which would enable them to be eligible in EB2. I think after waiting for about 8 years on top of spending about 5-6 years before that, some people feel weary.

Anyway, let us leave the option to the individual as these days USCIS started scrutinizing applications even in the last stages after I-140 is approved. So the risk is anyway there.

If an individual qualifies, in my opinion, they should apply in EB2, especially for those EB3s like me who have not done any labor substitution who have been waiting patiently for so long. EAD does not matter. The objective for all of us, EB3s, EB2s, EB1 or whatever category/country we come from, finishing the process is more important than getting stuck via EADs, APs etc.

Just my 2 cents.
