VO: Do you have any girl friends to feel responsible for?

I was scared actually.. my words went wrong, what i want to say is totally distracted.. i said some thing like Social responsibility. then the vo caught me.. and asked what responsibility ? do u have any girl friend to feel responsible for?
Really, i was scared about the people in the row, who were rejected in a line, and the one before me had 13 backlogs and 3 years of work experience, and he got accepted.

Please comment..

F1 Visa Rejection

There is nothing much to comment. You have already listed your mistakes and try to avoid such mistakes during US Visa interview.

If you don’t practice, you are going to make such mistakes.

Can you  walk straight into exam hall without preparation and score top marks?

Same applies to US visa interview, you have to practice answering the questions in front of the mirror or have someone ask the questions.
