I applied for J1 visa at Chennai Consulate. I hope explaining in steps would be helpful for future applicants.
1. Pay visa fees ( $100) at HDFC bank and get the receipt. Yellow receipt should be shown at the consulate.
2. Pay sevis fee if required, ( visit http://www.ice.gov/sevis/i901/)
3. Fix visa appointment online (https://www.vfs-usa.co.in/Home.aspx)
   Documents required to fix appointment
1. SEVIS generated Form DS-2019(Relevant documents based on visa class)
2. Passport
3. Receipt issued by HDFC Bank
4. E-mail address

4. Interview.
     My appointment time was at 8.15 A.M, I went there at 7.30 A.M, but it is better go at least one hour earlier. There are few processes to be done before appearing for the interview like screening of documents and finger prints.
    Few sample questions are already in this site, I prepared well for the interview and had all the documents ready, but the consular asked me very few questions and he did not even ask for any documents, the consular took just 2 mins . For few persons they took more than 7 mins. You need not worry if you have all the necessary documents and all are true.

Your requested extension of stay does not affect your visa status. Visa status is affected when there is US immgration law violation.

I hold multiple entry 10 year US B2 visa. I am now visiting US. My I-94 expires on June 3, 2007. I have applied for 4 months extension of stay (I-539), which has been acknowledged with receipt No. Supposing I receive a denial letter after June 3, and I leave the US within the CIS allowed grace period of 30 days, what is the status of my 10 year visa? Will it be cancelled? Even INA 222(g) gives no clear guidance. Hence my question.

Spouse came in fall for PhD, sent a dependent-I20 in September (It takes a week for international office of the university to process dependent I-20). Visa date in December at Chennai consulate

The Interview:
1. Asked for passport
2. Spouse I-20
3. Spouse pay-slip
4. Spouse Bank statement
5. When were u married
6. Why did u send
7. Visa approved.

There are cases where they ask for W-2 form. Ifpossible, its very suggestible to have it.
