I had a VISA interview on 11th of may and it was rejected.
Straight to the F1 interview:
She was a thin Phillipino(I guess) lady in her twenties.
- University: University of Texas at Arlington.
- Course: Bachelors in Computer Science.
- Status: Rejected.
I was the first on the counter and so I couldn’t have experiences of others. Here goes my interview.
VO: Hi, Good Morning, Can I have your passport and I-20 please.
ME: Sure. My scholarship is not mentioned in the I-20 but I have a letter. Here you go.
VO: Okay, which university?
Me: University of Texas at Arlington.
VO: Why UTA?
Me: Because it offers a great curriculum and has one of the best Computer Sci Department.
VO: Okay. What was your SAT score?
VO: What is the maximum score you can get?
VO: Your percentile here?
Me: Told from my 8th grade to 11th grade.
VO: How many universities you applied to?
VO: How many admits?
VO: Which ones?
Me: UTA and others.
VO: Why do you want to go to USA.(I guess I messed it up here)
Me: Because USA has the best technology and any new technology comes in US markets first. Secondly, it has a flexible education system. Unlike India, you are free to choose whatever course you like.
VO: I am sorry I can’t accept your VISA at this time. Please see this paper for more details on why you were rejected.
What was the reason given in the paper? My guess would be Potential Immigrant 214(b).
Try again based on the reason listed in the paper.
