Following F1 Visa interview experience is posted by Aparna.
Aparna and her husband were applying for visa for the the same university and visa interview on the same day.
I had applied for SAN Jose State University for MBA and my husband too had applied for it. His token number was 308 and mine was 310. I had got a different VO. But his got accepted and mine rejected.
VO: Ok, SJSU? Why SJSU?
Me: MBA and other reasons.
VO: Ok, you married?
VO: what does your husband do?
me: working in ****
VO: What are his future plans?
Me: Pursue MS in SE
VO: From which university?
VO: Your GMAT score?
VO: I’m sorry
This time she caught hold of me that me and my husband are going to same university.
Also she felt that I had a competitive GMAT score and compromised on the university.
So, I have changed my university to Syracuse for MS in IM since it is ranked in top 3.
I have also taken leave without pay letter from my company. Please tell me whether this strategy will work?
But from her words, I feel she felt I wanted to stay with my husband and was not interested in pursuing my career.
So I have changed my university to show that I am interested in career and not in settling with my husband.
I don’t know who advised you not to attend the interview at the same time. It was a huge mistake.
