'Confidence' the key word to get a US student visa.Just by mearely uttering the word you cannot gain confidence,it has to be built. There ways you can show confidence in your body language and face during the interview.Firstly,if you have all papers in order and you know every word of it.Besides this you should always practice your answers 3 times a day everyday before your interview that willl help you read yourself.Great oraters of the world practiced this.Make sure your answers dont sound memorised, they have to come out naturally.Thirdly,confidence can only be achived if you have genuine intensions. The counsular officer daily interviews thousands of people so just in matter of seconds they can judge you.
After getting the pink token there is the eternal wait for the call and you have butterflies running in your stomach which is good because it keeps you alert but dont let it take over completely. Anxiety kills the thinking process hence try and keep it low. Take deep breaths and release them slow and easy 3-4 times that shall calm you down.Drink a strong cup of coffe before the you leave for the interview,avoid smoking because during the stress it will increase anxiety.Usually the students wear singular clothing or thin cotton shirts during the interview and they are half dead by the time of the interview because of the A/C.The cold air increase anxiety.Its always advisible to wear a T-shirt or a singlet under your Shirt or T-shirt which shall help keep you warm.(Avoid jackets,OverCoats).It may so happen that the applicant before you just got rejected,DONT LOOK SAD..walk in with double confidence and give him a very good smile and wish him nicely.You will win your counsular officers trust.During the wait always allow older citizens to move ahead you and be very alert.Listening to slow rythmic music and a few breathing exercises just a day before will relax you comepletely. Get a good sound 8 hr sleep and wash your face with running cold water for 8-10 times that shall reduce soreness of the face and make you look fresh.
Get some enthusiasm in your body language,Voice and presentation.Dont let negative thoughts come up anytime when you are in the embassy.During the wait keep talking to people around so that you dont become blank during the interview and dont not show any signs of nervousness because you are watched every minute from the time you enter the embassy and till you exit. Many a times it might happen that your interview call is made after 1-2 hrs from the orginial time, DO NOT LOOK TIRED and BORED.Just check your documents ONCE and remember the order in which you have placed.
I am repeating again the US student visa is all about confidence rather than meeting necessities.I have friends in MIT and NJIT who havent given GRE and still studying there.I have a case where the student was rejected for 3 times and on the fourth time he was given a visa with an annual income of just 6.5lakhs.All of these students are close friends and have shared with me one thing in common -"Confidence will get you the Visa".
