VO: So Mr W Why do u want to go 4 MS when u r currently on a job?
Me: I feel that I will find a much better job after doing my MS from USA. Especially, in my job in XYZ Company, our work is mostly on control systems and since my specialized field is also Control Systems.It will help me to get a good command in it.
VO; Show me your GRE and Toefl scores?

VO : So, her husband worked there?

VO; What is the status of your parents ( A crucial one)
Me: They live in Pakistan and I live with my parents
VO: Where are they now
me: They are on a visit visa to US to see my sister
Then she typed some thing for 2 mins and said……..
” I am afraid Mr W, You don’t qualify for the student visa.”
By this time, my whole world was shattered but i asked her in a very low tone : ” Why mam what was the reason being this denial”
She said : “Academically u have good records and I have no doubts about ur qualifications but its just that u have no strong ties with Pakistan . ur brother is in UK .. ur sister is in US ..ur parents are also there on a visit visa and ur other sister is also married and you are single. You can get settled very easily . I am sorry”
What went wrong? I’m waiting for your replies. Please Tell me where I went wring? Should I apply again or not for student visa to USA?
