F1 Visa Coaching and Interview Prep

Who Else Wants to Get F1 Visa Approval?

Why F1 Visa Coaching With Happy Schools

Let's talk about how I can help you and then you can decide if you want to join Workshop or Coaching.

I have coached a 38 year old going for M.S., and someone going for Second Masters Degree, to someone with poor communication skills to someone with GRE in 280's to 330's and someone moving to the USA with their family to F2 visa holder and this list goes on.

  • Expertise: I have gained experience from helping students from a variety of backgrounds (backlogs, finance, low scores, previous rejections, sponsors, large deposits, etc.)
  • Framework: That Experience is codified into the framework (and strategy) that can be reused by anyone (like you).

I created the "F1 Visa Interview Prep Framework" based on experience gained from helping students from a variety of backgrounds. You can use the exact framework to improve your performance at the F1 Visa interview. How? You can improve your answers to questions like Why USA, Why this University, Why this course, What has changed since last time, etc.

You are essentially hiring me for my expertise to solve your unique and complex situation. I haven't seen any two students with the same background. Everyone has a unique set of challenges, Problems vary like financial issues or backlogs or previous rejection. So, how do you get F1 Visa when you have challenges?

It's extremely difficult the replicate the experience I have gained from coaching. You are essentially hiring me for my expertise to solve your problem, which is to get F-1 Visa Approval.

All the time and money you have invested till date would be of ZERO value if you don't get the F-1 Visa right?

Feedback from Arvind

I'm going for Second Masters after doing M.Tech in India.

F1 Visa Coaching with Raghu helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses and thus helped me answer with more confidence based on my strengths. He also helped me with the potential questions that could be asked for my profile
Because of your experience handling a lot of students, you have a better idea and you give a clear picture of the student’s potential interview questions.

Other things that I have learned are:

  1. Personal attention with a complete understanding of the student’s profile.
  2. Guidance based solely on the student’s profile.
  3.  You gave a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses my profile. And thus made me work more on my weaknesses which made me be prepared for any questions based on my weaknesses.

I would definitely recommend this service to other students when it comes to their visa interviews because of your vast experience in helping students clear their visa interviews and your blog is a good source of genuine information.

I would like to know the list of services that you offer so that I can recommend any of my friends or relatives who are looking for services other than visa interview consulting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About F1 Visa Coaching and Rejection Review. 

When should I join the F1 Visa Coaching?

I have coached someone who had F-1 Visa Interview in less than a day to someone who had their F1 Visa interview 3 months away. As a general rule of thumb, make sure you have at least 7 days between the date you join the coaching and your F1 Visa interview.
If you have less than 7 days of your interview, then send me an email as soon as you join the coaching. 

I have questions about F1 Visa Interview, how can I get answers?

If your plan included one on one sessions, you can get answers during the sessions. 

Silver Plan - a self-prep guide. Our goal is to help you answer the interview questions effectively. Q&A support or review of your answers is not included in the Silver Plan. 

Can you help with DS-10 form completion or submission?

Absolutely Not! It's your visa interview application form and we have no say in what should be included in the contents. However, there are pdf files as published by U.S. Consulates included as a reference. 

Should I Join Review and Coaching or Directly Join Coaching?

Here's my recommendation:

Applicants with Previous US Visa Rejection:

Join Rejection Review then Join the Platinum Plan. 

I don't recommend Gold Plan if you US Visa (B1/B2, F1, F2 H1B, H4, etc) has been rejected in the past. 

First Time F1 Visa Applicants:

Join Profile Review and then I will recommend Platinum or Gold Plan depending on your profile analysis (Weakness, Communication Skills, Are you Coachable, etc)

How do we meet for the Coaching Sessions?

Coaching is done via Video Conferencing Tool called Zoom. You can attend the coaching at using your Desktop, Phone, Laptop or Tablet. Please be prepared to be on a Video Call. 

Do I get visa for sure? Do you offer Guarantee?

I would if I'm approving your Visa 🙂

Only the Consular Officers can Approve or Deny your visa. I coach you based on the information you share with you. I work with you personally to improve your presentation, confidence, presentation skills, in addition, to help you improve your answers. If someone offers a guarantee of F1 Visa Approval, they are lying. 

Sometimes, you want someone to tell you things others will not tell. If I see an issue, I will call you out. I have a set of tactics that I use to shift your mindset.  Everything that's required to get the Visa is within you. I make sure to bring those skills out. 

F1 Visa Coaching: Consultant vs Happy Schools?

We provide a personalized approach and the cost of coaching reflects that. There are no memorized answers. There's no standard set of questions. Your consultant probably never attended F1 Visa Interview nor studies in the USA nor living in the USA. Just see the feedback from members who got Visa approval through Happy Schools help. 

I don't have a Credit Card. Do you Accept Cash?

At this time, we don't accept Cash or Bank Transfer. Indian Rupay cards are not accepted. Both Debit and Credit Card issued by Visa or Master Card are accepted. Also, Google Pay and Apply Pay are also accepted. If you have either Google or Apple Pay configured for your local currents, you should be able to make the payment. 

Is 30 to 45 minutes sufficient to Coach someone?

Yes, it is more than enough to coach someone. 

This process has been tried and tested several times.

  • Join the Coaching
  • Submit Profile Questionnaire
  • Schedule Meeting
  • Complete Video Lessons (over 6 hours of video lessons)

I will review your profile before we meet for the Strategy Session for Coaching.
