Univ Nevada Las Vegas, Southern Illinios Univ Edwardsville, Univ of Central Florida(at this point i forgot the seventh Univ. so i skipped it), North Dakota SU
VO: Interesting Choice how did you come to know about these Univ

Watch out for Counter no 13 (an African American Lady in her mid 50?s was not so easy on issuing VISA even the F1 )
All you have to be confident,noting else matters,do your paper work, VO did not check even my single documents, anyway even if he had asked for something I was ready with it in my harmonium folder.
