    Visa approved first attempt cleveland st univ

    counter no. 13
    My VI was about 90 seconds. He din't check even one document of mine. all my effort on documents gone waste
    A girl before me was granted a visa and this gave me a little confidence

    Visa officer was a guy who never smiled throughout my interview. He Just kept typing and typing all the way
    I constantly tried to maintain eye contact but he only made eye contact only 4 or 5 times
    Remember, I had to put a smile on the face throughout

    My VI went something like this:

    Me: Gd mrng sir ....with a smile on the face
    VO: Gd mrng. pls pass on the documents
    I gave him passport, i20 etc. all pinned together

    VO: When did u passout
    Me: 2012 sir

    Me: Oklahoma,Sjsu, sunyit, tamuk and Cleveland ....tell full name to VO not shortcuts

    VO: What admits u got from these?
    Me: sunyit, tamuk, Cleveland

    VO: why opting Cleveland over others?

    (i was a bit tensed here and thought he was going to reject me. But it din't show on my face and i maintained my tone)
    Me: Sir I cleared them in first 2 years of he interrupted me....

    VO: No I am asking how can u study in USA when u had 6 bl’s here in, bcoz education in usa is tough

    Me: My father is Xxxx and my mother is Xxxx

    VO: What’s their income?

    VO: Cleveland is a cold city, how can u live there? (Oh thanks so much for his concern I thought)
    Me: Not a problem sir, I can adjust

    VO: Ok, I am giving u visa, u can collect ur passport after 2 days
    Me: thank you sir

    I couldn't stand in one place...
