Following F1 Visa Interview Experience was shared by Sammie.

Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that i got my f1 visa in the Mumbai consulate on the 29 july 2011 and that for 5 years and no TOEFL.

My interview just went for 1 minute and did not even see a single paper of mine.

I went to the interview at 11 PM and sat for 1 hour for my turn.

As soon as they called my number,  I approached the counter with a nervous look.

But just kept it aside and walked in confidently and smiled at the VO who was a male.

VO. gud morning
ME.gun morning

VO. why the Univ
ME.said

VO. who is paying the cousce
ME said

VO.how will ur dad pay for the studies with so n so amt of money
ME. answered confidently

VO. asked me abt more abt my course and the details regarding it.
ME said confidently and answered to him confidently and politely

VO. OK UR VISA IS ISSED AND UL GET IT IN 3 DAY
ME. THANK YOU SIR N GOD BLESS.

Thats it nothing else was asked and he did not even see my papers and scores nothing.

My folder was closed when I went in and was closed when I came out.

All I did was trust in GOD and said prayer and went in confidently with God Name. and got my visa.

So all you have to be is confident and smile.

  1. This could be risky. You need to follow the proper policies. The university you are applying to may be involved in some stuff.

  2. no counsulate will work at 11 pm , whr did u get ur visa in ur dreams !!? wakeup man …i think ur suffering frm visaphobia 😛

  3. 1st of all no good university will give you admission without TOEFL, some universities like Bridgport can give u admission even without GRE..

  4. was this a proper interview to be posted? Although, I’m not criticizing, but you need to at least mention one thing you said at the interview! These were only questions! Not the answers given by you.

  5. Dude it was your confident…..by which you got visa…

    I can understand your happiness. congrats bro.

    n in your happiness u mentioned wrong time it should be 11 am. n bro just chill 

    These days many HSB readers are giving more sarcastic comments rather correcting. I think ppl are taking out there VISA rejection frustration here.

    just party hard, spend tym with mom dad. u’ll miss thm in US .

    chal bye TC god bless

  6. At 11 p.m. ???? and to HSB : If such experiences are coming to u , plz ask them to give proper information. Most of the successful interviews has answers “said”….

  7. At 11 p.m. ???? and to HSB : If such experiences are coming to u , plz ask them to give proper information. Most of the successful interviews has answers “said”….

  8. At 11 p.m. ???? and to HSB : If such experiences are coming to u , plz ask them to give proper information. Most of the successful interviews has answers “said”….

  9. am to pm cud have been a mistake,but the VO not even checking your 
    GRE and TOEFL scores seems to be quite a surprise !

    and pls post your answers too, so tht v cn know what made him so lenient !!!

  10. this one was an appreciating experience n thanks for sharing with us.,:D

  11. Are all your answers only single word “said”  said to VO ?? You’re great……………perhaps it’s a miracle VI. 
    How he gave you visa ?? 

  12. Hi,
    U have to mention your University name dude. let every body know so tht some may give proper response whether tht is good univ… or not as u will be spending ur parents hard earned money  on it.
    whether tht money is spent on tht univ or not ? think wise before u take any decisions
    The university which will give I-20 with out GRE & TOEFL are as same as Tri-valley univ, UNVA, Herguan, ITU, Silicon valley, CA Takshila univ…….. etc & many more.
    Beware of these univ… & thy may shut down by USCIS at any time.
    Moreover you are very lucky to get visa as by post your interview expeience in blog seem tht u are not a worth a candiate to get studied in USA. I am dscouraging u bro…. but with out minimum requirements u will struggle to pass in USA & u cannot get  a proper job also. U enjoyed a  lot in India by not studying and dng same in USA also.

    but best of luck for ur carrier frm now onwards past is past hope u get a good carrier there.

  13. This post is nothing but a waste of time for the readers. You have not specified any of the answers that you gave, then how do you expect the readers to benefit by reading your post. Moreover you have obviously mixed up 11am with 11pm. With such a careless and casual attitude one wonders whether it is at all worth it for you to pursue higher studies in the U.S. After all somebody, even if not you, will be footing the bill!
