Visa Interview Experience:

Entered the consulate at 8.30 am, out by 9.25am.
Place was fairly crowded but everyone was called an hour early so it is better to reach the consulate 2 hours early. I was called at that counter at 9.15 I guess.


ME: Good morning Sir, How are you doing today?
VO: I'm doing good, pass me your i20 & passport.
Passed


VO: Why UIC? (While checking my passport)
ME:
Gave my prepared generic answer.


VO While checking passport he stood up and went somewhere with my passport to get it checked. Came back.
VO: Okay why did you choose this school? (He must have forgotten but he asked the same question)
ME: Gave same answer differently.


VO: Pass your SEVIS. How are you funding your studies?
ME:
My father is sponsoring me, we have also secured education loan from HDFC credilla.


VO: What does your father do?
ME:
Director at a Private firm.


VO: (reached for the blue slip book and said) Sorry I am not Approving your visa this time.
ME: Can you please tell me the reason.

VO: Its written in the slip.
ME:
Thank you, have a nice day ahead!

He only asked for my i20, passport & SEVIS receipt.
Whole visa was around 2 minutes where he was gone for almost a minute. I was answering smilingly the whole time and he was too.
