• F1 Visa Interview with 24 Backlogs

    I am Kesav attending for Fall 2012 F1 Visa Interview. My GRE is 270 and TOEFL score is 69. I have 24 backlogs and i cleared them by the end of final year(JNTU). i got admit for MS in CIS from Ganon University. What are my chances of Visa with backlogs?


    First thing you have to know is There is no law/rule to reject your F1 Visa based on the number of backlogs. You got admit from a US university since they are fine with your academic level and performance. So don't worry about academics. If the visa officer ask you about backlogs, tell him the genuine reason for your backlogs. Let him know that you did a good job by the end of your b.tech by clearing out all your 24 backlogs and you worked hard for it.

    F1 Visa interview interview is not just about your backlogs. It's about your financial documents, your scores, academic strength, your criminal background etc. Backlogs are just a part of F1 Visa interview. Moreover it is about Luck . Gud luck.

    F1 Visa Interview with Existing backlogs

    Currently if you are in 7th semester and if still didn't clear your backlog, you can attend visa interview. Visa Officer may put your visa approval on hold until you submit your marks list. They will temporarily approve your visa and will stamp the visa on the pasport only after submiting final marks list. In this case you don't need to attend for F1 Visa Interview again.

    Maximum backlogs accepted for F1 Visa Interview

    Visa Officer evaluate your degree not the number of backlogs. I have seen a guy who had around 30+ backlogs and got visa approved for first time in US Consulate.

    Readers, please add your inputs.

      By the way what do you actually mean by backlog? Say, a student could not clear two subjects in the first semester, cleared one of them in the second sem and the other in the third sem. Cleared all subjects of second sem, third, etc ...... upto final including final sem. Is this called a backlog. If the visa officer asks you whether you have backlogs, what do you reply to it.

      As u stated that u have more than 15 backlogs, did the VO ask u in the Visa interview abt how many Backlogs u have? Some ppl say that, even though they have more backs, they'll say that they just had 2 or 3. But what if they r checked? We would got caught.

      Hi im siddharth and i am a 2010 passed out with 2 years work experience. i have 33 backlogs and all have been cleared. i have contacted a consultancy and they are telling me that because of my number of backlogs my application will be rejected by universities in the abroad, is it true? Can't i apply for any university.

      Actually what do they consider as backlogs the total number of subjects failed or the total number of 0's in the credits in my B.Tech memo's. If they consider subjects i had 18 subjects as backlogs and if they consider the credits then i have 33.

      Don't worry about backlogs. Although universities have limitations on backlogs, every individual will have an university suitable for their profile.
