I was on H4 visa valid till 30th August 2017. I applied for COS to F1 in April and my classes for Masters began on 21st August 2017. Meanwhile my COS was pending, I started going to school and my I-94 expired. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago COS got denied with the reason that I attended school while my non immigrant status was expired. I traveled back to home country in the middle of my semester to appear for the interview.
So, I attended the visa interview yesterday and it got rejected. Here is how the interview went,
The lady who interviewed me started with the regular question Why this university, and then
Why F1, What’s your current GPA, Are you currently attending the school?
It went good so far. And then she asked Is your husband still in US working? When is the end date of his current status? Can you pass me his visa copy? Then she looked at the copy, paused for a while, went to some other lady and discussed on something for a couple of minutes. After returning to her seat, she rejected giving the 214(b) slip.
I’m booking the appointments again. Now, considering that my H4 expired, F1 got rejected once, what are the chances of approval in the second time? Please suggest me the convincing answer for why H4 to F1! Please help!
