Has People without tourist history equivalent chances of getting F1 Visa as compared to candidates with tourist history?

F-1 Student visa Consular decision has no bearing if you have travelled or not. Merits are decided based on laws applicable to a student visa. The only time it would have an impact is if you had or have visit visa and overstayed, if you used the visit visa to go look for schools, if you apply for a student visa almost immediately you got your visit visa. Otherwise if all those don't apply, the merits are strictly if you qualify for the F-1 visa.

B-2 tourist visa has a lot of bearing on tourism history. The more travelled you are without overstaying, the higher chances of getting a visit visa.
No one wakes up at age 40 gets a passport and decides for the first time in his/her life to go visit New York or Orange County as the first place UNLESS it is a very specific occasion like a wedding, graduation et al.
You get the point.

Hello, I am also medical student of final year. I'm preparing for USMLE STEPS as well. I have been accepted by FIU University , Miami to do ELECTIVES there . So before completion of internship I can go and do electives there in USA for my better CV to represent. But just today I gave my b1/b2 visa interview at Mumbai office and got rejected even though I had letter of FIU University of acceptance. So what should I now plan ? Because as per your experience even j go after giving step1 and step 2 ck then also they can reject me. Guide me through your experience please. Hoping for your kind response.THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
