Comments About Your F1 Visa Rejection
It was obvious by reading the first few lines of your experience, that you are not going to get F1 visa.
In-spite of the Visa officer asking you, if have memorized your answers, you are looking for an answer for others in public forums? Why is that?
- Your Answers – Looks memorized
- Lessons Learned – I don’t think you still understand why your visa was rejected.
- Chances of Getting the F-1 Visa next time – Difficult (with what you have described and how you have written)
Here’s what I can’t understand about your story. Your parents are in Italy, but you have never been to Italy. Did your Aunt and Uncle Adopt you? If not, why haven’t you visited them? Why your brothers and sisters are in Italy and you are here?
