I need to know this before I can retain an attorney. The thing is that all those categories, such as Humanitarian situation, Compelling interest of USCIS, etc are so broad that I don't know whether I can meet the criteria and if yes under WHAT category. I already filed my application BUT the processing time goal for Vermont center is 2.5m. I don't have that much time since the residency program starts at the end of June. Moreover, before I start my residency I need to already have my J-1 approved and possess SSN. I can't even apply for SSN until I have J1 approved.Plus, getting SSN will take at least a week as well. I need to lease a car and rent an apartment as well, without SSN I can't do any of this.The hospital also needs the resident to work. Can I make a compelling argument to USCIS?
