> Following F1 Visa Interview experience for Average Student is shared by Sandip Ghelani.
Who has said that F 1 visa is not for an average student, I have got my F 1 VISA though I am a average student.
HSB has provided very good archives for F-1 Visa interview experiences and all the other important things related to that.
I am very much thankful to HSB for doing this wonderful job.
I am Sandip Ghelani. First of all I am very very much thankful to all those who have prayed for my F 1 visa acceptance.
I think I have got the Precious blessing of my Family, friends, teachers and the taxi driver who has dropped me at the Visa Center.
I think God is with me at the Visa counter For F 1 Visa.
Somebody on HSB has said that Confidence is the Key to get VISA, Yes He is absolutely True.
When I entered in the VISA Center everyone in the tension when I look at them and smile I can see that my smile at them has increased their tension more. I think they are wondering why I am smiling as like I am just here in garden of VISA Center.
I went for F 1 visa interview on 30th July, 2012.

VISA OFFICER HAS NOT ASKED FOR ANY DOCUMENTS FROM ME.
I was very happy at the time coming out from VISA Center but also feeling the pain on the face who are rejected at that day.
From my experience I can say that a very big smile on your face from your entry into visa center with lots of confident and having faith in your heart can do the job very much easy.
