O-1 Approved for Collaborative Pianist

A pianist specializing in accompaniment came to us for help going to O-1 status from Optional Practical Training (OPT) ending in June. We had done numerous similar cases and submitted this one with ample documentation that our client met the required three criteria. We were therefore surprised to receive an extensive Request for Further Evidence. However, we were sure the pianist was qualified, and responded to the RFE by carefully documenting that she met each element of each criterion. We secured an approval in time for our client to work the summer music festival season.
