Akshay @ F1 Student Visa Interview Tips
This is akshay n my visa date is 29th july. I’ve got i20 from Fairleigh Dickinson University only. I’ve applied for MS in Biology. So what should i do if VO asks me why only this university? Pls reply quick i m really tensed…
Note – While writing a letter or question introduction should be like Hi Friends, not hi friends. If you happen to write an email to Professor or during job search to HR, they are not going to consider replying to you. Hope you take this suggestion in nice tone.
VO – “Why this University”
It not just you, every student in your situation will have to to find answers to this question. But I know exactly why it is so hard to answer that question.
You didn’t do much research while selecting the university. Mostly a consultant could have picked up Farleigh Dickinson University along with few other universities. If you have applied to US Universities for Grad School admission by yourself, then your friend could have had admission from FDU for similar score. So, you applied and got admission.
Now you are finding it tough to answer the question “Why you selected Farleigh Dickinson University”. If you have done your proper research about the University before applying for grad school, it will be much easier to answer this question. By now, you will know the name of the few Professors, their research areas, student contacts and should have exchanged few email with Professors with University.
Without all the above, its hard to give the true answer to the question during US student visa interview. [ Sample US Student Visa Interview Questions ]
Visa Interview Question and Answers
You can answer this question in multiple ways, but any answer you provide will not be true answer right? Because you are going to come up with made up answer.
But, if you lie during US Visa interview, they can find out from the way you answer the question. So, never try to make up an answer while attending US Visa interview. If you were caught lying, your entry to US can be banned for lifetime.
Since you don’t have much time, try to find more information about FDU from their website and try to answer the question. If you have other admits, try to compare both the schools and say FDU is better than other admission. In this way you will not give false answers.
I’m Really Tensed for US Visa Interview
There has to be certain level of tension, else there will be overconfidence. So, some amount of tension is good.
- Prepare to face all possible scenarios
- Answer with smile
- Be confident and look confident.
- Read the visa experiences posted by other students. If you read 5 to 10 Student Visa interview experiences, you can see a pattern of what kind of questions VO asks and why do that ask. So, understand the pattern and expect to face the questions.
- Remember – Always smile and answer the questions with confidence.
- If you don’t understand their question, ask them to repeat it again.
