Following F1 visa interview in Mumbai Consulate looks pretty casual. This student is appearing for this 3rd F1 Visa interview after getting rejected twice. Once in Chennai and second time in Hyderabad consulate.
The actual twist to this interview is in the last line of of this experience. I have made the following changes to the original article submitted by the student
- Corrected a few typos.
- Removed student’s name
- Removed the name of the parent company

Vo: Did you get my question or not?
Vo: Repeated the same question
Me: Ok, to be frank this is the one of the best admit I got. Valparaiso is in 4th position in Midwest regional universities. The main reason for selecting Valparaiso is its course curriculum and the faculty. My field of interest is multi-level security systems and there is a wide range of research work is going over there under the guidance of Dr. Daniel & Jay Christopher They won 200million dollars for their research work in MLS? I can learn a lot from their Experiences.

Me: With huge smile every body asking the same question. Vo smiles too. Actually, my home city is Hyderabad. For the last time, I couldn’t able to find the slots in Hyderabad. So I went to Chennai. Earlier this month I got a slot in Hyderabad and went for that. For this time I couldn’t find any slots in Hyderabad for next week, so I came to Mumbai. Don’t have special reason Ma’am.

Me: Thank you.
Friends please suggest me what to do now. Anybody got the visa after getting 221 (g).
Please post your comments. Thanks in advance
Hello Dear Raghu, I don’t know how to proceed with remaining things, Could you please guide me how to send the required documents to the consulate.
They asked me to submit through Email, Invitation from College, Resume, Research, Position in my current job, SOP, Itinerary, Funding, Traveler’s, Travel.
Actually, I used a fake experience is it a problem to me.
Why 221g is Expected in Your Case
You mentioned the word Cryptography and Hacking. So, I would expect you to get 221(g).
But, the real problem lies in submitting your experience and background check. Why would you fake your work experience for F-1 Visa Interview?
My best guess would be because of the Gap between your college graduation and application to the university. I don’t see any other reason for you to use fake experience.
Well, you decided to use fake experience, then you should face the consequence of that!
