There were 2 officers wearing suit had arrange all the people according to their visa category in line.

Then we had told to be prepared with our I20 and passport only in our hand. Then we had taken to the first building for security check up.

After check up I had directed to next building. Where token number given, finger print taken and told me to wait till my number came on the LCD screen along with the window number where

I had to report for my interview.

Then my turn came, my visa officer was young lady

VO and Me Simultaneously: Good morning (with smiling)

VO: Your I20 and Passport
Me: here it is

VO: So why US?
Me: For perusing my PhD degree.

VO: You have done your masters?
Me: Yes

VO: When did you have finished your masters?
Me: June 2011

VO: What were you doing till now?
Me: I was doing job in ABC Company

VO: Which University you are going to?

VO: Why this University?
Me: I am very much interested in work going on at the lab of XYZ professor

VO: Did this professor have talked to you?
Me: Yes
(Then for about 5-7 min she was typing and looking in the screen, at this time I was scared and praying because my mom and dad had green card and my mom had filed petition for me and I did mention that in DS160)

VO: Who is funding you?
Me: University
VO: Ok,
(Again she typed some thing in computer)
