    Visa Approved in less than 30 seconds-First Attempt

    GRE: V-147 Q-155 AWA-3.0 Total-302
    TOEFL: 97
    Acads: 75 %
    University: Purdue University, Calumet
    Course: Engineering/Industrial Management [Electrical Engineering Basically]
    Term: Spring 2014

    My visa interview was scheduled on November 6th at 10am. Went to consulate at 9:30, stood outside for atleast half an hour and waited inside for another 30min. My number was called and I went

    Me: Hi, How are you?
    VO: I'm good. Give me your Passport and I20
    Me: Given
    VO: Oh Purude so why Purdue University?
    Me: Purdue is a very reputed University as every one knows and it has a very flexible course curriculum, I can choose 3 interdisciplinary courses along with fixed core courses to get in-depth knowledge in my specialization.
    VO: When did you Pass-out?
    Me: 2012
    VO: Whats your Percentage?
    Me: 74.46 %
    VO: Any Backlogs?
    Me: Yes, One!!!
    VO: Whats your GRE score?
    Me: 302
    VO: Your visa is approved have a nice day!
    Me: Thank you, Have a nice day!

    Every thing was done in 30 seconds span and he didn't even check a single document except for passport and I20. I was worried if he asks for siblings cause I have one in US under OPT. Be confident. The more level of confidence the less time of interview. Also please remember to have a look at your 1st year subjects cause I saw one officer asking that question having CMM in her hand. All The Best !
