I recently applied for a waiver of my J - 1 Research visa . I am subject to the 2 year requirement based on the skills list . One of my reasons , was that I was not funded by any government or international organization . I got into this J - 1 position because that was the only job offer I had after completing graduate school with an F - 1 visa . I've never been on a J visa prior to my current status ( expires 07 / 2013 ) . I did not have a job offer when I sent in my waiver application but I hope to get this 2 year requirement waived in order to adjust my status to LPR . Does DOS / USCIS consider a potential job offer ( e . g . H1B ) in making a determination whether to recommend a waiver ? What do you think are my chances based on this information ? Have you had success with a similar situation ? Thanks very much .
