F1 Visa Interview Experiences

This is What Happens When Reverse Psychology is Used During F1 Interview

He forwarded me the Appointment Letter and slid the passport along with other documents into a tray beside him.

And he said those golden words ‘Your application is approved. You will receive a message on your mobile and your email ‘.

I said,’ Thank you, thank you very much.

You have made my day Sir’.

I could not believe that my visa has been approved.

A few drops of tear fell out of my eyes.

I thanked god, my grandparents and my parents. Specially my brother.

The few things that I followed are:

With backup plan it gives you some confidence. And pray to god. 🙂

  1. hey, that was a very good post, good learning. My visa interview is on 25th June, 2015. What I didnt understand was one question about distance?

  2. The guy says that he had back up plans for applying to Australia and stuff and still does not mentions anything about he applying to any Australian University to VO. Doesn’t that means he actually did not have any concrete steps to follow backup plan, just a ‘though in mind’ of what he would do if he is rejected Or maybe he was just mentally prepared. However, not to be ignored still he did his job well.

    Well what I am trying to say here is ‘reverse psychology’ is a good thing but it won’t applies to everyone. For example, if a person X has already made a very concrete backup plan and also has taken measurable steps towards it, he or she may not be very enthusiastic about interview(main desired task) and would not prepare that well, probably, because he has a self satisfying notion of backup ready if failed. On the contrary, a person Y is very passionate about his ambition to study in America and does nothing but every attempt to make this goal accomplish and knows very well that he has no other option(or maybe he does not wants to look into other options because he cannot mentally prepare himself for other options), and, therefore, he will try hard to turn every stone to accomplish his dreams.

    Lastly , I would say I am not that kind of person either and reverse psychology works for me too but it may not work for everyone. Hope you get my point 🙂

    1. Hey Ashish – Good to see your comment after a while. It might not work for everyone but its a distraction that someone needs to take their mind away from focusing on negative thoughts.

  3. Hello HSB, I am not able to understand that what was wrong in this interview. Why this fellow got rejected?
