Indian on H1B, starting GC process: Is it a good idea to just get the easiest i140?
My goal is not to get a green card. My goal is to extend H1B for a few more years. I have 1.5 years left on my last H1B. I was leaving this year, sold assets, investments etc but got an extremely interesting FANG opportunity that will significantly elevate my position in India. My new employer is starting the eb2 green card process. I have Masters degree, but credentials not good enough for eb1.
Is there any advantage in getting letters for the maximum amount of credentials? Or do you just roll with the least amount of credentials needed for an i140? I guess I'm asking: if Masters degree and Masters+multiple experience letters get the same eb2, why not just apply with Masters? Is there any problem with getting an eb3 i140? Does lower-credentials-i140 trigger extra scrutiny during H1B renewal? I'm trying to reduce the effort in getting employment letters.
