ME: Yeah, I'm doing great !
VO: So, your documents please?
ME: Sure.

VO: Ohh, University of Michigan !! That's a great school ! So, who's gonna pay for your studies?
ME: Well, my parents of course, to be specific, my mom. She is a celebrity singer in Bangladesh with a lucrative career of 25 years.
VO: Oww, wow ! So, what's her name and what does she sing?
ME: (Told my mom's name and genre and then also told about my dad though he didn't ask) - and yes, my dad is a govt official. He's a Deputy Secretary to the govt of the people's republic of Bangladesh. He's currently the national project director of the Comprehensive Village Development Project under the ministry of local govt. He is an Ex Deputy Commissioner of Chittagong (I tried to get my dad's visiting cards and my parent's CV's as proof but he refused to see them and said it's okay, you don't need to show anything. Keep it.).. Then ..

VO: Okay.. So, can I see your bank statements so that I may know where's all the money coming from?
ME: Of course sir ! 

Then gave him the bank statements worth 55,000$ along with user ledger as a proof that the fund has been there for more than 6 months. While he was taking a good look I offered him police clearance certificates as a proof of no criminal history whatsoever but again he refused to see it and told me "Well, it's okay, you don't need to show it. I can understand that you are a nice young guy with no criminal records"

ME: Okay !

VO: So, Tamim.. you want a good news or a bad news?

ME (with a big laugh) : Of course a good news sir !!

VO: Well, I'm approving your visa, collect your passport from saimon center this 19th.

ME: OHHH!! Thank you so much sir ! I really mean it !

VO: Congratulations and study hard buddy !

ME: Thank you so much and yes I will !

(the VO mistakenly returned my passport and I asked him about it. Then he took my passport back and gave a big smile).

And I came out with a confidence higher then ever !

মেরিনা জাহান মেবিন,
Monday April 29th, 2013
I have faced my Visa interview today.
I am sharing my experience here:
(VO called me,I entered and exchanged greetings)
VO : may i see your I-20 please (first question)
Me:(handed I-20)VO: Oh,you are fully funded!!
Me : (nodded with a smile...:P)
VO: Why did you choose ..(uni name)?
Me : I have been accepted there with full funding.
VO : Oh,I see,they are giving you the highest amount of money.
Me :(silent)VO : What was your undergrad school?
Me :(told the name)
VO : Oh,I see!!(Then she typed something)VO:Congratulations!!Your visa is approved.Collect your passport on ... from door no#2.
Me : Thank u mam (with a broad smile and sigh of relief...:D)
So,don't panic about visa interview,take it easy and everything will go smooth.Just one thing to mention,the DS-160 form for female F1 applicants is different to a significant extent than males.For female applicants,there is no option available for showing previous educational background and training experience.I was driving mad that I filled my DS-160 in a wrong way ,as I did not know the fact.
