My spouse is on H4 and started pursuing MS 4 months back (Jan 2019), due to the annoying H1 lottery rejections over 3 yrs. Yesterday she went to India for F1 stamping as COS takes a lot of time. But F1 eventually got denied unfortunately in Chennai consulate. The VO has asked for I-20 and her passport thats it. He didnt even ask any more questions. So we are taken aback like why her F1 was denied, even after investing (and ready to invest) these many funds in her MS.
Now - wanted to know if she can stay back and try one other interview in Kolkata or Delhi, or in Chennai itself once more. She never knew the reason why it was rejected in the first place. Or - would you suggest she can return back on H4 itself and re-apply for an interview at Cancun MX or Canada consulates.
