- In the table above the columns India and china represent the monthly figures from the Jan 2011 Inventory. By this time we should assume that 3 months worth of cap for India and China has been consumed. So ~ 1400 Numbers are consumed.

- PD porting was calculated as 3K for last year by subtraction of the EB3-I inventory and then excluding the EB3-I annual cap, this year however due to the district office demand inclusion it is not possible. A very conservative guesstimate that will not be broken is 6K. PD Porting that may have happened in these months in 2011 should be reflected in the inventory (There are divergent opinions on this subject though if EB2 Inventory is updated as soon as porting happens). So to be safe we will assume that all of 6K porting that is expected has not been applied to the inventory.

- The starting offset for India assumes 6K PD Porting + 700 Cases Approved + 500 old cases not approved = 7200. For China it Assumes 700 Cases Approved + 100 older cases. The total offset at the start is 8000. We should assume the porting as part of the offset as we will not se any movement till Jul. Looks like porting is only happening for India.

- PWMB refers to those who could not file for their 485’s as the labor approval was missed out or they are adding dependants now. These values are by my gut feeling another point to note is that the PWMB demand especially from May 2007 maybe felt only when the dates reach that point, so ~3500 lesser SOFAD maybe required for the dates to actually move forward if the inventory is the baseline.

- The total monthly is the extrapolated total for the month and cumulative sum is the cumulative figure. Now if someone is interested in finding out that what point we will reach in Sep 2011 they should put their figure of SOFAD and see the resting point.

- Following is the SOFAD received from different sources based on the DOS Annual Report EB1 - 2K, EB2 ROW - 9.5K, EB5 - 9K, Regular Cap (I+C) = 6K

Now lets analyze on That Website to see the trend for Oct 2010 to Jan 2011

Year 2009 (Oct to Dec) EB2 ROW – 211 EB2 NIW – 34 Total - 245
EB1A – 57 EB1B – 97 EB1C – 70 Total - 196
Year 2010 (Oct to Jan) EB2 ROW – 153 EB2 NIW – 16 Total - 169
EB1A – 18 EB1B – 22 EB1C – 22 Total - 53
The drop in EB1 appears to be really drastic however I feel it is not being adequately represented.
However looks like the EB1 consumption could drop this year compared to last year though. If the EB1
Consumption actually drops to 50% of last year then this could provide ~ 15K SOFAD this year.
Consumption last year = 43000 - 3500 = 39500.
If we assume a drop of 25% (Extremely conservative) the consumption will be 29625
However this year we are back to the regular cap so SOFAD = 40320-26925 ~ 11K
If we assume a drop of 50% (Extremely Optimistic) the consumption will be 19750
However this year we are back to the regular cap so SOFAD = 40320-19750 ~ 20K
For the conservative calculation let’s just go ahead with 11K.
For EB2 the data appears to be good.
EB2 ROW consumption last year = 43000 - 6000 - 9500 = 27500.
Now the trend shows that the consumption is (169/245) * 27500 ~ 20K.
So potential SOFAD out of EB2 ROW will be 34K - 20K ~ 14K.
EB5 SOFAD will be ~ 8K.
Hence total SOFAD that we can expect in 2011 = 11 + 18 + 5 = 34K.
With ~ 34 K SOFAD we may reach Mid March 2007. Now lets look at all possible scenario’s.
Worst possible case is that we have 26.5K SOFAd just like last year, this will put us at 01-JAN02007.
Best case scenario is EB1 gives us an extra 10K and the PWMB demand will be felt only when the dates cross May 2007 so kind of add 13K on top of the 34K this can actually help to throw us over the fence finally to 01-AUG-2007, this again is extremely optimistic but not impossible. We just have to continue monitoring for more time.

To this end, I had posted earlier in this forum with some calculations. The numbers I arrived at seemed way too optimistic, though, with less than 300 EB3I --> EB2I portings in 2010. Anybody has any comments on that?

It starts with you before you preach. Show us what you are doing with IV to help with advocacy and what is your donation this month.
Stop preaching if you cannot follow what you preach. You are EB3 and will be like this if you do not donate and go to lobby day. So stop wasting time and book your tickets to lobby day.

This is probably the first post of yours I agree with, but it applies to everybody EB2 and EB3. Besides newbies, predictions also have value in terms of helping people relocate, change jobs, in investments, or to throw in the towel.
I also feel this helps most people who are close to getting current.

.
Just to clarify both EB2 and EB3 have a real chance of success. There is no Bill we can write today that will benefit only EB2. There is no such thing in IVs provisions. Its time to stop saying IV is not doing anything for EB3.

Plainspeak, Do you have an employer or you are a stay at home Mom or just an unemployed person. Maybe you are some out of status H1B immigrant staying illegally and now having something against other legal folks doing something.
Whatever you are. You just have lot of time in this world to waste if you do not believe in what IV does. You may even be an employee of some other immigration website paid to post such negative messages on this forum. I have always suspected those paid employees being against IV because of their business is threatened by popularity of IV.

Tony, this plainspeak guy looks like one of the paid employees of other immigration website to me sitting in a small room in India and typing with multiple usernames in the night on forums to help increase visitors. He is just threatened by the fact that a lot of people are watching this prediction thread and joining advocacy day action item instead of spending time on his site. Te longer people are waiting for Greencards, the more time people will come to his website. So IV work is not in his 'principle' of things.

Dear friend. it looks like Plainspeak is member of IV since 2006 and he had posted less then half number of posts then you have posted who is just a newbie in this forum, you can tell who have more time and who is stay home mom or stay home pop.

I am not agreeing with Plainspeak on dividing EB3 and Eb2.

work together man, dont insult anyone on saying something you dont like. specially when you are not talking face to face.

Cheers,

MC

Default Thanks a lot!

Dear All,

While all educated and right thinking people would like to welcome dissent and differing opinions, we cannot allow divisive and hate messages when our situation is really in a hot seat and unity is the prime need of the hour . As such, it is really a good move to delete such messages in the interest of our community. These people sow the seeds of poison, create negative vibrations and also distract the community from using their time/ effort for the betterment of the suffering EB folks.

I am sure most of the members will support this. I am sure that if this done, we can brainstorm and use our energy in a more positive way!

GOD bless the EB community!

Best wishes!

Hi Teddy,

My PD is May 2010 EB2-I, I know I have a long wait time.. but my question is: suppose the priority date reaches July 2007, as there are no more 485s pending will they make it current?
