Uncle as Sponsor for USA Education

Raghuram Sukumar Application 1 Comment

Hello Sir, I am in 3rd year of Engineering Under VTU, Karnataka, India

I am having problem in my family. So, Funding my MS in US may not be possible from my Family.
Can I get the Money from my Uncle(Brother of my Mother) and He is ready to Sponsor me.

And will it be a problem, as my Uncle Works as Senior Civil Engineer in a Construction Company in BAHRAIN(Gulf)?

Should I say that The Sponsor is my Uncle in Visa Interview?

If Ok, what are the documents to get from my Uncle?

And I also have an Uncle working in CISCO in US who is Brother of my Aunt’s Husband. He is also ready to Sponsor me.

Who do you think is the best Sponsor to choose?

And when to send the Bank Statement and Affidavits to University?

  1. Sir,
    I finished by bachelors in mechanical engineering in June 2016 and I received an admit to spring 2017 for Ms in engineering management at Florida international university.
    As to program I applied for, never asked me GRE scores and I was asked to choose between TOFEL or IELTS.
    Even am from a diploma background who later finished engineering as a latterl entry student for 3 years.
    My visa was rejected twice for same admit of spring2017.
    Both the time I was asked for Mark sheets ( I wasn’t having my 8th sem Mark sheet and final degree proof both times) and GRE score.

    Now I got my admission differed to summer 2017 for same university.
    I got my entire bachelor’s documents in hand and good GRE score too.
    Am planning to consider my uncle as my sponsor this time.
    Please tell me, will it be good to apply for same university for 3rd time and having my uncle as my sponsor.
    Since FIU is the 4th best public university in United states and I don’t want to miss the opportunity applying to others instead. Parallely I got offer from Canada and Dubai university.

    Also guide me with few tips to have successfull visa this time.
