hi everyone, how are you all doing. want to use this medium to say a big thank to this forum and most especially to coolpact for his advice and also to arch1234 for sharing experience that really helped me.
my interview experience was good not stressful at all.
on the day of my interview was also my biometrics. my interview was slated for 9:30am, i got there by 8am we were called in by 8:45am, went through all security check and then the biometrics which didnt take long and after which the queue for the interview which was moving very fast.
during the interview i was pretty nervous but undercontrol also. when it was almost my turn the guy in front of my got rejected and that scared me kinda that i could not move forward when it was my turn, then the VO said please come forward and that was how it started.
VO:hi, come forward. good morning

that was all. no document asked nor was any checked. all dis lasted for 5mins.
my observation is that before visa is approved it is already determined from the ds 160 form filled, the interview is just a formality and a way to conclude and be sure they made the right choice to issue the person visa, my advice is when filling your form, fill it out correctly and truthfully and fill it yourself if you dont understand what you are doing ask but do it yourself so that when ask any question you can easily defend it.
be bold, be confident, look good responsible in dressing and pray always. God bless you all.
