Got my GC thru EB-5 Visa program
So after I got rejected for the H1B I did the EB-5 Visa and got my green card in 18 months. It's an expensive option but it's worth it IMO.
Edit: My story was covered in the LA times if anyone wants to read: https://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-eb5-visa-explainer-20180410-story.html?outputType=amp
Feel free to pm me about it if anyone has questions.
