I gave my visa interview for my PhD in biomedical sciences university of Oklahoma.
- TOEFl: 102
- Funding: Full tuition waiver + stipend + health insurance
- Appd uni’s: 4 admits, 4 rejects
- Result: I got 221g admin processing.
- Date: 16th may, delhi embassy
Here it goes.
Me: hello sir, how are you doing today?
VO: namastey, kaise hai app?? (iieeellaaa……..this was a sort of googly, actually he was taking an interview in hindi before me. Some punjabi family was there with whom he took around 15-20 mins and finally rejected their visa)
Me: Namastey, I am fine, thank you.
VO: tell me your complete name? (reminds me of a movie trailer “kevi rite jais” a Gujarati film)
Me: bla bla
VO: Why US? (looking at the computer)
Me: for doing…
VO: achha vo chhodo…Why uni of oklahoma? (still looking at the computer)
Me: I came to know about the program through Dr XX XX at OMRF. OMRF is collaborated with the lab in which I pursued my dissertation work. I met him…..(stopped me)
VO: ok Mr patel please go to counter 30, we need some additional information.
Me: Thank you.
This was so quick that i didn’t even realized when it got over. I was numb as i thought i was denied for visa. When i reached counter 30, i realized that i was given 221g admin processing. I stood at the VI counter not more than 15 seconds. W/o any pause, no documents asked.
