I am Rithvik and i applied for 4 universities and got an admit from one univ that is IIT chicago for Food Safety and Technology. I got my F1 VISA date booked on 22nd of December 1000am at Chennai here’s what happened
At the time of token assigning i told a lie for him stating that i haven’t changed my application form which i later realized that i did change it. (would this have caused for my rejection).
F1 Visa Interview
me: good morning sir
VO: Pass your I 20 and the other document( i20, degree completion certificate, sevis fee, GRE, Toefl)
Me:I passed it to him and was waitin for him to shoot the questions
VO: So Which school are you going for ?
Me: pardon Please sir
VO: which University did u apply for?
me: IIT, chicago sir
VO: So, why this univ??
me: i started out very bad sayin ” the university is good and it has an MOU with FDA and IFSH which helps students get to work with the government funded projects.
VO: Which major are you applying for
Me: Food safety and Technology
VO: What’s your % in you Under-graduation
VO: any backlogs
me : None sir
VO: when did u pass out
me: 2010 sir( didn’t ask anything about what have you done from then, I thought he would)
VO: Checked out my Gre and Toefl scores(970 and 86)
me: I was positive enough that it was a 100% approval
VO: I think the requirements that you have presented us are not enough and i don’t think that you will complete the course work.
me: but the university was OK with me and my profile
VO: angrily replied ” that is not enough for the VISA interview sir”
me: Damn and issued a 214 (b)
thought he didn’t check my profile like checking out my transcripts, financial certificates CA statements and etc..,
I applied for the VISA Once again in order to try out my luck this time. This time prepared very well and was 100% sure that i would sail through where first time i wasn’t and i applied again for the Chennai consulate and got a date on 5th January, 2012.
this time it was another guy ( thought that i would get the same guy because he was just 2 counters away from where i got)
VO: I think we have examined your profile once and rejected you so what changes have you done from the first interview
and i could see his face changed with a NO visa approval for this guy
VO: so why did u apply for the VISA interview again
me: the first time i was not given chance for showing my documents and other information so i applied it once again
so he typed something
VO: so what’s your %
VO: I think that without any changes made attending the VISA interview is kind of complicated issue
me: but the first time i couldn’t prove my self by showing my documents
VO: i don’t need to see the documents sir and then took the 214 (b) paper again
me: what sought of changes do you require for my profile when i have everything requirement cleared
VO: its based upon your chooses of what improvement that you want to make sir but this time i don’t think we can approve your VISA sir.
SO please suggest me what are those loopholes where i couldn’t get through
