How to Relax Before F1 Visa Interview
It’s natural to have tension and jitters before big event like F1 Visa interview, when you have spent 2 years preparing for this very moment.
Trust me, I have tension and jitters before any big event) , but when the event starts, I’m at my best.
Over confidence is trouble, but tension is good.
It will help you bring out the in you. When I’m tensed, I relax myself by controlling my breathing pattern.
Breath slowly, inhale and hold your breath as long as you can and then exhale. This will lower your tension.
Speak the truth with smile looking into VO eyes. With low GRE and 2 backlogs, try to highlight the best parts of your profile.
If you have increased your academic percentage after backlogs or in last 2 years, then say that you have overcome adversity and proved that you an achieve academic excellence.
Good Luck to you (who ever you are) and would like to hear about your travel and interview experience in detail.
