    Hello every one,

    I am posting this exp. to get Ur valuable suggestions. On what are all the changes that I ve to make to apply again.

    Hyderabad
    25 June 2013
    8:30 AM

    I have seen 3 interview before me 2 women and a man. The VO was a young lady good looking of course.1st the man.seems to have come for 2nd time rejected. 2nd girl for F1 approved straight away without troubling her much. Next women married must b going as a dependent. The VO called for a translator and went through the interview, the women could not even speak but was granted visa. My turn now. Here is how it goes..

    Me: Gud mrng mam.(Dint notice or listen so wished again louder this time)
    Vo: Gud mrng. Pass me your passport.
    Me: Sure, here mam.
    VO: What is the year of your graduation?
    Me: 2009 mam.(Short because previously I saw her interupting a girl when she want to give a long ans)
    Vo: What hve u been doin since then?
    Me: I have been working as xxxxxxx in xx company.
    Vo: What is your income?
    Me: 3 laks per anum.
    Vo: You r earning gud then y do you want to study again?
    Me: Mam, I feel my growth is stagnated to a certain level in my current job and I want to switch to computer network which is of great demand which help me to establish myself in a gud position.
    Vo: Y did you choose this university.
    Me: California state university has inovative and dynamic curriculam which is designed by xxxx univesity, my field of interest is xxxxx and this curriculam is the same as that of xxxx university. I want to specialize in this subject under the guidence of Dr xxxxxxxx.(This is where I ve been thinking I went wrong)
    Vo: How many backlogs do you have
    Me: None mam.(She typed for some time and gave my I-20 back)
    Vo: Please place your four finger.
    Me: Right hand mam?(I thought she approved it)
    VO: Yes.
    (Now she returned my passport back along with a goddam brocher.)
    VO: Sorry sir I cannot issue the visa this time.
    Me: May I know if there is any reason for this.
    Vo: No sir we wont give any specific reasons. go through the brocher.

    Friends, I was very confident while answering but I m not sure what went wrong. Now My problem is I want to go to chennai this time within a week time. I know the first que would b "What changes have you made." I need some suggestion based on my interview.


    Thank you very much for your support and suggestion guys..
    Finally I got my visa approved at Chennai...
    Here is the interview:

    Me: Gud mrng sir. H r u today?
    Vo: Great h r u man?
    Me: I gud sir.
    Vo: Give me ur passport
    Me: Sure sir.
    Vo: Which Univ?
    Me: California state university, east bay(Dint change from the last time hoping that would explain my interest in college but not in place or country).
    Vo: What will you study there.
    Me: Masters in computer systems network and telecom sir.
    Vo: Hmm.. What is ur undergraduate % or GPA what ever and how many backlogs?
    Me: told
    (Then he had gone through my application)
    Vo: So, you were denied at hyderabad?
    Me: Yes sir on 24th of june.
    Vo: And also in 2011.
    Me: Yes sir at the Delhi consulate.(He was going through my application all this time was not typing anything, must have read the comments of previous interview).
    He threw my passport into the basket.
    Vo: U get it this time.(It was not clear to me and I dint bother as well because I knew when its thrown i m done just my assumption that he said u get it.)
    Me: Thank you sir.(Walked away dint look back or ask for clarification)

    Infact I was out of my mind when I see that, I say "see that" because I did not even listen to what he said and did not recover for the next 15 to 20 minutes. Seriously friends my long wait has come to an end..
    yashulol and khoushik like this.

      You did not give a good reason as to why you wanted to study further. you switched your area of study only because computer networks is in great demand (which, by the way, is in demand only in Us not in India) ? V.O most likely thought you as a potential immigrant. Add to that you chose a low ranked univ in California. Come up with a better answer on why this university. Preferably, apply next spring or fall with a better ranked univ else you have high probability of being rejected again.

      Thank you very much Xenots. Me too has the same feeling but already have booked a slot to chennai. Do you think if there will be any increase in probability if I change the University to USM(University of southern mississippi) which I suppose is also a low ranked school. Problem is I do not have admits from top tier schools. other than these two I have an I-20 from Tamuk with scholarship. Anyways I will go with better Universities for next intake but don't want to give it away on a single attempt as its already been 4 years since my year of pass out. Expecting your valuable comments on this.

      Your problem is not your low ranked university or 4 years of work ex. or your GRE/IELTS score.

      Your answers are just straightway giving impression of a potential immigrant , I mean not one but all major answers why this university, why leaving Job etc .. all of them

      Lucky that your first interview lasted that long , you could have been rejected after first answer major answer.
