First of all I would like to thank this site for all the help it did. I started going through this site only before my visa interview and picked up a lot of tips.
I finished my undergrad in commerce and applied for Master’s in Accounting. I got into Boston college and William and Mary with scholarship and eventually chose Boston College.
Even though I was kinda scared about my Interview, In the end it went on very well.
Here’s my F1 Visa Interview experience

- Smile when you wish the Visa officer.
- Answer confidently.
- It is easier to get a visa if you have a good school on your side.
- Honesty is really appreciated by the visa officers. Do not lie to them.
I would once again like to thank this site for being a great resource for me.
