I appeared for my F1 VISA interview at the Hyderabad consulate on 28th Nov. I am Masters student in Biotech. I was said that please respond to the email (221(g)) to further process your VISA. VO was seeing only my I-20 from start to end.
I got TA, which covers more than 60% of my Tuition and living expenses.
