I (Diksha) took my visa interview yesterday, May 9, 2011 and I got it! =)
I was really nervous when I was on my way. But as soon as I reached there. I got busy with the procedure, security check and other things and I wasn’t nervous anymore. Infact, I did not get time to get nervous!
Eye contact is a must.
Now, that I experienced it! I can say it’s about how confidently you answer there. Trust me, I realized that it’s just a matter of 2 or 3 minutes. If you can control your nerves during these 2-3 minutes, you can do wonders!
I really want to Thank HSB for their help! I honestly, did not visit any other site. I found all that I needed here!
Thanks a lot. I keep saying it every now and then, but you are really helping a lot of people out there. Great work! Keep it up!
Student visa for USA Interview
VO was a nice lady.
Me: Hi, Good Morning *with a smile*
VO: Good Morning. Takes my passport, I-20, DS-160 confirmation, Sevis Fee receipt.
VO: So, you are applying to Clemson University?
Me: Yes, Ma’m
VO: Why Clemson?
Me: My present college i.e Ansal Institute of Technology has collaboration with Clemson University.
VO: Sorry, Your present college again?
Me: *repeats* Ansal Institute of Technology.
VO: Oh! Ansals.
VO: Have you been to US before?
Me: No, never.
VO: Which course are you taking up?
Me: Computer Engineering.
VO: Why Computer Engineering?
Me: Because I was always fascinated with Computers and I really wanted to know how this machine works.
VO: …..but why CE? Do you plan to do something in computers in the future?
Me: Yes, I plan to do MS.
VO: Did you take SAT?
Me: No, I didn’t. I took TOEFL and I scored 99 in that.
VO: Is your father alive?
VO: What is your mother?
VO: Who is sponsoring you?
VO: Types something on the computer….”Ok! Your visa has been approved!”
She said, something about “………………..5 days”
Me: Thank You! =)
Me: 5 days?
I was so happy, I did not bother to ask her to repeat what she said. I just heard 5 days! However, I realized I shouldn’t have done that cause’ after an hour or so I was so tensed regarding what she said.
I thought she said, You’ll have to come back in 5days, but I am assuming that she said, you’ll get it back (passport and other things) in 5days.
I called the embassy to confirm. They said, you don’t have to come.
That’s about me, but unfortunately, my friend who took the interview on the same day couldn’t make it. I hope she gets it the next time.
She’s shattered. Her grades were good!
VO just asked her 1 question:
Why Clemson University?
She replied, because its a prestigious university and it is collaborated with AIT.
To this the VO replied, Sorry! I don’t believe you. I can’t give you the visa.
I am shocked! I wonder, if it is all about Luck? I dont know, but it’s sad. We all are praying for her. **GOD BLESS**
