Wait for masters to complete or not

Canada Immigration Forum (discussion group)

Subject: Wait for masters to complete or not
Fist of all I would like to say that your website forum is very helpful.

My situation is:
I am in US for 1.5 year (I am from Eastern Europe)
Doing my masters in Computer Science (graduation date: dec 2009) - but I am full time working in US, doing my practical training.
Overall I have 2 years of professional experience in software development.

My Question:
I want to apply for immigration as a federal skilled worker.
With my wife we score around 67 points, which is the minimum.
If we wait till dec 2009 (which is 1 year from now) we will get more points, but it is a lot to wait.
So should we risk or wait when I complete the masters?
The thing is that when I will get my PR I will finish already my masters. Will the immigration people consider that?

Or maybe try and find and employer in Vancouver and go with BC PNP program? Although it´s quite hard to get employed overseas. Can an office or lawyer help with this employment?

Sorry for writing so much - in the basic terms I just want to go faster to Canada so that I AND my wife can work (she cannot on her dependent visa here in US).

Thank you so much!

If you meet the 67 points cut-off then go ahead and apply. You are not see favourably if you have more points. Later on, after completion of Master´s you can update them with your degree certificate.

Depending on your visa status in the US, you may also want to look at Alberta PNP, which may not require you to have a job:

I am currently on F1, so that PNP from Alberta is not an option for me.
And I would prefer B.C.
