Thanks to Vijay for sharing his F1 Visa interview for PhD at Chennai Consulate for Fall 2012.
I would like to extend my thanks to this blog in assisting for F1 VISA interview preparation.
I got a overall idea about the interview and experiences shared by members really helped me to face the interview with confidence.
I applied for the interview on 27th of April 2012 at Chennai consulate for Fall 2012. It was really a thrilling experience for me. This is how the interview went.
Me : Good morning sir (With smile)
Visa Officer : Good morning. Asked for I-20.
Types something in computer.
VO: Whats your under graduation?
Me: I said
VO: Whats your post graduation?
Me: I said
VO: Why did you select this course?
Me: Said (I Consider this answer helped me to obtain the VISA)
VO: Your VISA is approved and you will get it in a week time
Me: Thank you very much sir.
Was about to scream. But somehow managed to control myself.
One thing I learned before interview was that one should stay confident whole through his/her interview process. VO looks for legitimate reason which will be exposed through our body language.
Still having lot of stuffs to share. Hoping to share in near future.
Congrats to Vijay.
But, would all the experience shared in this blog have been helpful, if eveyone posted “I said” as the answers in their Student visa interview experience.
I really don’t understand why folks who get value from previously shared F1 Visa interview experiences don’t want to add value by sharing their experience.
If you don’t want to share your name of the univeristy is totally fine, but “I said” i snot going to help others much.
Please try to share the answers to your visa interview questions.
