F1 Visa Interview in Nepal

Me: I have review some universities but apply only for Maharishi University of Management. (She shows some kind of shocking face)

Me: I am working in a company for around 20 months. Besides that, I got from my part time job and also from my saving during my academic years.
VC: How much you earn in a month?
Then she left the interview table and went somewhere.
After some time (around 1 min), she returns:
VC: What’s your future plan?
Me: After acquainting knowledge from Maharishi University, I am sure that I will get good job opportunity over here in Nepal. My current employer is also happy with my work and dedication and he wants me to join company after my graduation. But, I am confident that I am in position to establish my own software company here in Nepal where IT sector is in progress and contribute it as a good IT professional.
Then she writes something in paper and said:
VC: Sorry we don’t issue your visa. You are excellent student. But you can’t say that you will use your money to university for your study. Most students went to US for study and work over there. You don’t have any credible source of income which will allow you to return back to Nepal.
(This much only I remember)
Then I took the file and return back
