EB2-EB3 downgrade via Premium processing for SCHEDULE A

I am a Physical Therapist, Schedule A employee. I had an approved EB2 with PD 03/2012. I had applied for the EB2-EB3 downgrade and concurrent filing of the 485/765 in Oct 2020. I recently updated to PP for my I-140. The application has gone to the same center that did the original EB2. Do I stand a chance of getting I-140 downgrade approved? I don’t have a PERM as I am a SCHEDULE A employee. if it by chance gets denied what are my options?

In many cases, USCIS has denied the downgrade for schedule A cases as there is no PERM involved.

Attorneys are challenging this position but it has not yielded any positive case result yet.

Is there any way of notifying USCIS personnel that it’s a SCHEDULE A application?
