The university sends you an official Certificate of Eligibility which is form I-20 for the F-1 student visa and J-1 visa for   exchange students.

Visas can be issued up to 120 days before the scheduled date of departure. In order to make sure that you have your visa before the first day of class, apply as soon as possible and provide enough time to wait for processing, as well as interview.

Preparing for the Visa interview

The interview time is usually two to three minutes. That’s all the time you get to make an impression. But the idea is not to make an impression, just relax and be truthful. You could be asked what you had for breakfast that day, smile and say parantha, if you have had them. It’s just to strike a  conversation with you.

 

Of course, they will ask you why you are going to the US, why you have opted for a certain university and not the others. They might even ask you a little bit about the course you are planning to pursue. They may ask if you plan to work in the US after completion of a degree. Be truthful and say that at the moment there are no plans; that you plan to come back to your country, however, if you do get a good offer, you would like to work, gain experience and come back.

An applicant might be further investigated in the case of certain courses such as Biosciences and Robotics.The nature of the course is such that officers do want to verify applicants are genuine cases.

 

Medical check and insurance

The medical examination is to be done before you leave. A general medical report including Manto, Hepatitis and MMR are required. However, an HIV test is not required.Most of the universities include insurance in the total tuition fees as it is compulsory to have a health insurance; however, some universities do not offer this. So, it is advisable to buy medical insurance from India as it is three-times costlier in the US. For example, ICICI-Lombard offers a student medical insurance policy to Indian students that covers all medical and dental problems. Remember, if you do not take a medical insurance, no doctor or dentist in the US will entertain you.

When you arrive in the US

Don’t get nervous. Yes, people are different, it’s a different country, but keep your cool. Just make sure that you have all your documents when your turn comes to see the immigration officer. And don’t forget to make eye contact.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 7th Nov, 2019

hi,

see phd can be done after the course in master degree. some times dual 5 years master+ phd courses available. but it is really difficult to into ivy league colleges as you dont have any background in economics. i would suggest you to first go for master in economics, then if you can adapt it than you may do phd, see engineering and economics are two different paths , its true that we do need economical model to run a business in our engineering corporation, however it will take time to adapt the things while learning masters. please think again if you really want to do it.

Apurv 15th Oct, 2019

Hello Amreen, Scoring a 5 in IELTS is not considered a very good performance. Countries like US, UK, Canada want a minimum of about overall 6.5 in the IELTS test. For the admission part, no colleges take admission only on the basis of IELTS because it is a language proficiency test and not an aptitude test. The colleges require multiple other things like Academic references, Statement of purpose, School and college marks and other things depending on which country you are applying.
