I did my bachelors in Computer science and worked for 5years in India. Now, I am on H4 and pursuing my masters in Computer Science. I joined the college in may 2018. Completed one term with GPA of 4. I am thinking of traveling to India to change my status to F1 next month. I heard they are rejecting many H4 to F1s. It would be very helpful if you guys help to answer these questions:
As per my university, I have to show $40k liquid cash in my husband’s [Sponser] account. Even though my husband is taking care of living expenses, I have to show money for that as well [apparantly I will no longer be dependent.] Is that okay if we borrow some money from our relatives / Friends and show that from my husband’s bank account?
Do Visa officers check transactions in bank statements when we provide them as proofs for financial documents in the F1 interview?
I had taken TOEFL and got 87. But I dint take GRE since in my university GRE is mandatory if we have GPA less than 2.8 in undergraduate. I had 3.29 so they waived GRE for me. Will the Visa officer in F1 interview agree for this? Or do you guys think they could reject my F1 because I haven’t given GRE?
An important one, Why change from H4 to F1? I would answer that, I really want to “get the practical Training” and if I do assistantship in my university, they would reduce my college fee which would be a great financial help for me. Do they get convinced with the answer? I know everyone might be telling the same thing and they are tired of this answer. But sadly this is the truth.
Please help me with this.
Thanks in advance.
