First of all thanks to all the immense experiences posted here which helped me prepare for my B1 VISA to the USA.
I am a 21 year old third year engineering student from Bangalore and was attending a conference in NY. I had my VISA interview on 19th Feb 2013.
The Interview was very short as is under:
VO: Good Morning Sir, Please come to the counter
Me: Good Morning, How are you doing?
VO: Please give me your passport.
Me: Handed it over. Do you need anything else?
VO: That’s it for now. Let’s find you on the system.
VO:So you’re going to New York?
Me: Yes Officer
Me: To attend xxx summit as I have been awarded a fellowship.
VO: How long will you be in the US
Me. 5 days (as per DS160)
VO: Who will be paying for the trip
Me: My father
(Types for 5 seconds)
VO: You are good to go young man. Enjoy your trip to the Big Apple.
He seemed very enthusiastic to hear my replies and before me he refused one H1B Visa applicant as well.
Not a single document was verified. I am posting this as my thanks to all the people who posted and helped me be confident for the interview
