  1. Please, could anyone tell me the meaning of this backlogs the VO often asks? I would think it means : disadvantages in your studies.. but am not sure . could any one tell me more.?Thanks

  2. I’m happy to read that you got into a decent university with 980. Gives me hope 😀 Out of curiosity, what was the breakup of your GRE score? I’m interested in the quant score specifically, since it’s important for me too but I didn’t get a good score.

    1. Hello Madhur, You have a very good profile.My problem is
      your choice of schools,most of your choice of schools are really on
      the high side.Why not try some other schools that entry
      requirements are not too high,you might be a king there and you
      will surprised you will get funding there too.One thing I will tell
      you is that different schools read your profile differently,so good
      scores may not only be what an admission committee is interested
      for funding.Try some other safety schools,that will increase your
      chances of admission and also funding,don't forget you are
      competing with students from around the world and they all want to
      get into those top schools you are selecting.Good luck.

  13. dat's bullcrap."talking about confidence" .this successful
    candidate does'not even know how to write ,i wonder how he replied
    to the VO's questions. you are a lucky guy Mr..good luck with your
    american dream

    1. Hello HSB, Rajesh congrats on your visa.There is no
      yardstick used to issue an F1 visa by any vo.But what HSB is trying
      to say is that please and please do not be found wanting by a
      vo,cover your own ends,do your homework,be prepared to answer any
      question that will be asked reasonably and just let the God you
      serve be on your side,preparation really helps,never assume that
      you will be lucky there is no such thing as that in the dictionary
      of visa issuance,prepare and prepare well.

  14. Hey,

    Thats…. Thats what I call a blind luck. Well,it seems like it's too good to be true but anyway…. Congrats! happy flying 🙂
