Hi Rajiv I am a first year computer science student in Mumbai University I plan on moving to the States after graduation so I looked at my options I could continue my studies in an American University on F-1 Visa or if I could land a job If I could get an H1-B visa I was wondering whether I can apply under EB1a green card because it doesn't require an employer or could I apply under an 0-1 visa So I went through the eb1a criteria and it confused me a lot So I actually won an competitive programming contest for software developers called techgig code gladiators which is the biggest programming contest in india certified by Limca Book of World records does that qualify me for the first criteria of extraordinary ability of a one time achievement . I have had another doubt whether it is possible to apply for eb1a visa as a student . My income is generated by participating in various hackathons and winning their prizes some as big as 20000$ . So my finances are decent . If I am not eligible to apply for eb 1a or O-1 in this current situation then please tell how should I build my resume to meet the requirements of eb1a green card . Do I need a job in an MNC like Google or Amazon at a high post Or do I need to get a PhD to apply. Or do I need to publish articles and editorials about software development . MOST IMP : Please give me advice on how should I build my resume in order to qualify for an EB1a green card as a 'STUDENT' who does not have a job currently. Thanks for your generosity , Rajiv
