Following F1 visa interview in Mumbai Consulate looks pretty casual. This student is appearing for this 3rd F1 Visa interview after getting rejected twice. Once in Chennai and second time in Hyderabad consulate.
The actual twist to this interview is in last line of of this experience. I have made the following changes to the original article submitted by the student
- Corrected few typos.
- Removed student’s name
- Removed the name of parent’s company
