A friend of mine did it in the field of music production. He had no publications or anything. He hired a lawyer ($15,000) and the company he was interning at got a recommendation from some really higher up in Sony. The lawyer wrapped it all up in a few days and sent it along with the expedited processing fee. He had his "your EAD card is on the way" message displayed on USCIS case tracker, so basically "APPROVED" two weeks after filing.

Listening to him talk about it really did feel like he was cheating the system.
