F1 Visa Coaching

Former U.S. Visa Officer Endorses F1 Visa Coaching

  • Who Should Join

    F-1 Visa Coaching is for Highly Motivated Student’s who want to Maximize F-1 Visa approval chances based on their strengths, weakness, financial background and career plans.

  • After You Join

    After joining the program, you hit the ground running by watching the F1 Visa Mastery Video Modules. Followed by “Persona Analysis” Questionnaire and exercise.

  • Strategy Session

    This Strategy Session is what differentiates my coaching from an “agent”. I just don’t give you a template answer for you to memorize. By the way, those agents probably haven’t stepped their foot into U.S. Consulate or attended F-1 Visa Interview or Studied in the U.S.A. Here I get to know you at a level deeper than what you know about you. #FACT. Then we make it happen.

  • Magic Happens

    From the Strategy Session to F-1 Visa Interview is where the Magic happens. You will be working hard by following customized instructions for your profile, while getting ready mentally and physically to Face the F1 Visa Interview. We would have 1 to 3 Mock Interviews based on your Prep Level. Some with below average “skills” might require some hand holding vs. someone with 15 years of experience. Just listen to my previous student’s feedback.

  • How Long Do I Need for Coaching?

    I have coached someone who had F-1 Visa Interview in 3 days to someone who had F1 Visa interview a 3 months away. So, it depends on your ability and current level of understanding about the interview process. As a general rule of thumb, make sure you have 7 to 10 days between the date you join the coaching to date of your interview. If you have less than 7 days of your interview, then send me an email as soon as you join and let me know that your interview is coming up in less than 7 days and I will accommodate you.

  • What If I Have Previous Rejection

    You know very well that, it’s easier to get F-1 Visa on your first attempt than second or later tries. Your approval chances drop BIG Time after your first rejection. But, having previous rejections can be converted to an Approval (and I have coached them for approval). Students who came to me have complexities, a weakness that’s difficult to overcome. But, there’s always a STRATEGY that can devise to strengthen your case and give it a try.

  • This Coaching is Not Right For..

    My style of coaching is not right for everyone. If you are looking for ready-made answers or expecting me to write answers for you, then I’m not the right fit. Everyone I coached till date (even with low GRE to 10+ backlogs) folks was able to F-1 Visa. They had a strong heart and desire to change their Stars. They were not looking to be spoon-fed. They just needed someone to point them in the right direction and they walked the path.

  • No Lies or Fraudulent Documents

    I want to help hard working students, who think they need little extra help with their Interview. You have all the skills to get the Visa approval within yourself. If I discover you have questionable documents and experience or background. I WILL refuse services and No Refund. I don’t support fradulent document nor can coaching anyone to lie!

    I’m not an Immigration Attorney. Coaching is to make you speak better, present your self better with confidence. If you require assistance with legal opinion, talk to an Immigration Attorney.

Why Work with Me for F1 Visa Coaching?

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?
