F1 Visa Mumbai Consulate Interview Experience.
I graduated in Pharmacy in Sept 2010 and gave my GRE and TOEFL in Jan. GRE 1090 (q 750, v 340) and toefl 84.
I applied to 7 universities (4 for MS in pharmaceutical sciences and 3 for MS in biotechnology). By may end, i got 6 rejections from university with no acceptance. So i prepared hard for my MPharm entrance and LUCKILY got M Pharm (ceutics) on merit in top university in Mumbai.I paid my fees on 29th June and then got last admit from university of houston on 30th may.(Good Luck)
I thought hard and finaly decided to cancel m pharm admission and try for houston (As Texas being cheap than other us universities). I had USA visa interview on 18th July.
This was how it went: My F1 visa Interview Experience.
