F1 Visa Renewal on OPT (221g)
Did not find too many posts on this and not many people go through this process so wanted to share my experience.

My F1 visa expired in May 2019, my OPT is until June 2020 so traveled to renew my visa.

Consulate: Hyderabad, India

Interview Date: Aug 6, 2019

Walked and greeted him, he greeted back. Took my i20 and passport.

Interviewer: Tell me about your college you're going to man.
Me: Uhhh, I graduated 2 years ago, I am on my OPT.
Interviewer: Oh! ok, tell me where do you work at.
Me: Told
Interviewer: Can you spell it for me?
Me: Spelled it out.
Interviewer: Have you ever violated F1 Visa in the past?
Me: No Sir! Absolutely not.
Interviewer: Ok, we need additional time processing your case, don't worry it should be fine.

Handed me a white slip, didn't ask for any additional documentation.
My case was on administrative processing for about 10 days. Got the email to pick up my passport after the processing was done.
