Visa interview Experience:
VO was a lady of around 35.
I saw 70-80 rejects inside and 4-5 approvals.
Scary as hell. Said to myself that be prepared to be rejected.
VO: Pass me your passport and i20.
ME: Gave with a smile.
VO: What other admits?
ME: Suffolk university, university of Bridgeport.
VO: Why not Suffolk it's a good university?
Me: Ma’am my priority was project management from starting that is why choose NEU.
VO: Any friends or relatives live in USA?
ME: Yes, elder sister.
VO: How long she is been staying in US?
ME: 3 years.
VO: On which Visa?
VO: Dependent on whom?
VO: Who is sponsoring you?
ME: My parents.
VO: What do they do?
VO: Have you taken any loan?
ME: Yes from SBI of XYZ lakhs. And also we have funds of XYZ in bank.
VO: YOUR VISA IS APPROVED, you'll get the SMS in 3-4 days.
ME: BIG smile, thank you so much.
I think funds and university matters a lot along with little confidence.
