      Finance was the major issue in your case. As you never mentioned about your own savings which will take care of your loans..

      I think your finance was an issue. Your huge loan might be dubious to VO as y would you come back here with a such a huge debt...

      And ur brother too studying what if he wants to pursue studies in USA...

      Other things were in ur favor.. scores , exp., academics!!
