Visa Interview Experience:

I got little nervous as I entered to the interview zone. I was looking around and most of the visas getting rejected.

A girl who went before me was rejected although she seemed fluent and well prepared.
Before I start my visa experience I want to mention my profile because most of the students thinks that getting visa with low profile is tough but it's not.

GRE: 292
IELTS: 6.5

2015 pass out with no experience (however, I managed an experience certificate for the interview)

VO: Good morning, please pass me your passport, i20 and sevis receipt. (I could hear only passport and passed it to him)

VO: Please pass me your all three documents together.
Sorry sir (and passed all three documents together)

VO: Which University?
USC, Columbia

VO: Why this university?
I tried to explain but then he interrupted me.

VO: How many universities you applied for?

VO: So, who is sponsoring you

VO: What your parents do?
Told about the profession of my parents.

VO: Ok I am approving your visa.

Note: I was prepared very well but the environment around me made me nervous and almost forgot everything that I prepared. However, I was loud and clear with my answers during the interview.
