opinions pls
so as i said i was denied before for a b1/b2 visa and i am re applying again
When i was asked if i was refused for a us visa i said yes
and i wrote this explanation that i need please ur opinions on so i can change something if needed

I WAS NOT APPROVED A B1-B2 VISA ON MARCH,12,2020 DUE TO 214(B). THIS TIME I HAVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PROVING THAT IS ITS PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO OVERSTAY MY VISA AND THAT I MUST RETURN TO UKRAINE. AS AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT I HAVE A VERY UNIQUE FINANCIAL AND PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES RELATED TO MY EDUCATION.1 I HAVE BEEN IN UKRAINE FOR 5 YEARS ( INCLUDING 1 YEAR OF RUSSIAN). 2 THE ONLY REASON FOR BEING IN UKRAINE IS TO BECOME A DOCTOR BECAUSE I COULD NOT SECURE A SPOT IN MEDICAL SCHOOL IN EGYPT. 3 MY PARENTS PAY $3500 A YEAR IN TUITION FEES PLUS MY EXPENSES OF ABOUT $500 PER MONTH AND MY PLANE TICKETS TOTALING ABOUT $9000 PER YEAR. 4 I HAVE EXCELLENT GRADES AND I PASSED UKRAINE LICENSING FIRST EXAM (KROK 1). KROK 2 WILL BE TAKEN DURING THE 6TH YEAR. THIS MEANS I AM ON TRACK TO GRADUATE. 5 I AM IN 4TH YEAR (OUT OF 6) AND WILL NOT GRADUATE UNTIL JULY 2022. 6 MEDICAL SCHOOLS IN USA DO NOT ALLOW INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. FOR THESE REASONS IT IS PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO ABANDON MY EDUCATION AND MY GOALS TO OVERSTAY IN USA ESPECIALLY THAT I AM ONLY TWO YEARS FROM GRADUATION. ADDITIONAL TIES INCLUDE IS MY PARENTS IN EGYPT. I AM THEIR ONLY CHILD AND I CONSISTENTLY TRAVEL TO EGYPT TO SPEND TIME WITH THEM ( ABOUT 2 MONTHS PER YEAR). ALSO I HAVE LEASED AN APARTMENT THAT I PAY RENT AND UTILITIES FOR. I WILL BRING ALL SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION AND EVIDENCE TO THE INTERVIEW . I'D LIKE TO STRESS THAT MY ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO RETURN TO EGYPT AS A LICENSED DOCTOR AFTER COMPLETING MY DEGREE AND RELEVANT EXPERIENCE (WORKING AS A RESIDENT) IN UKRAINE

please if you have any comments on what i wrote pls comment and if u really think that they may consider from what i wrote

My parents had their visa interview today at New Delhi consulate and it was approved.
Interview was in hindi but they did not have a translator, Visa Officer itself was speaking Hindi.

My father is the one who answered all the questions.

VO: Why do you want to visit the US?
Father: Our daughter invited us for her graduation ceremony which is on May 16th.

VO: What does your daughter do in the US?
Father: She is a Master's student at xyz university.

VO: How many children do you have?
Father: I have two daughters. Older daughter is married and lives in Delhi and younger one is in US.

VO: Have you travelled to any other country before?
Father: No

In the meantime my mother starter opening her folder to show my documents to the VO. He noticed it and said I do not need to see your documents and with a smile he said I've approved your visa.

My parents thanked him and left.

Parents B2 visa rejected
Hi,

Recently my parents had applied for B2 visa and got rejected under section 214B.

VO: Whats purpose of your visit
Parents: convocation of our daughter

VO: who is funding her
Parents: me (my dad)

VO: What is your profession
Parents: Dad- Retired as a bank manager, Mom-Housewife

VO:Apart from your home do you have any other property
Parents: No

VO:Do you have club membership
Parents:No

VO: Do you have children apart from your daughter
Parents: No

VO: Do you have parents
Parents: Parents are not alive

VO: Can't approve it

My husband lives in US and he funded my education. He is on H1b Visa. I was married to him 2 months prior to my visa interview and was not having marriage certificate. So while giving visa interview(F1) I had mentioned that my dad is going to fund me and I don't know anyone in US.
That's how my dad got confused while giving an interview and said he funded it.
(Note: My dad has enough fund in his bank account to sponsor)

From my perspective, this case seems as potential immigrant to VO.

1.Could you please give suggestion about how they can overcome this denial and show sufficient ties to the home country to show that they intend to return.
2. Also, what will be good time to re-apply to increases chances of approving visa.

Thanks in advance !!!
