Comments by two students

নিজে reject হওয়ার পর একটা জিনিস experience করলাম যে যারাই naturally  confidence এর সাথে ans দিয়েছে তাদের ভিসা হইছে আর যারাই reject হচ্ছে তারা কথা বলতে আটকাইতেছিল/ ans দিতে অনেক দেরি করেছিল / এমন ভাবে ans দিতেছিল যেন  সারকে  paragraph মুখস্থ বলছে। এটা 90% এর ক্ষেত্রে দেখলাম ।

আমিও কথা বলা বলতে দুইবার আটকাইছিলাম এটাকেই reject এর কারন মনে করছি । যারা সামনে interview দিবেন ভালো করে answer এর  সুন্দরভাবে naturally react করার ability তৈরি করে যাবেন ইনশাআল্লাহ ভিসা হবে

আপনার কথা টা ভালো লাগসে,naturally react korar ability তৈরী করা।সবাই বলে যে সুন্দর করে উত্তর রেডি করে যেতে, এটা আসলে ই কাজ করে না।

তারা ক্যান্ডিডেট দের কাছে সত্যি জানতে চায়। তৈরী করা উত্তর না। আর কনফিডেন্স তৈরী হয় না উত্তর মুখস্ত করে। You need to practice a lot.

Why This University?

Who is your sponsor and what does he do?

Ai 2ta question er best answer ready korben. Best wishes to you.

ভিসা অফিসার চাইলে ২/৩ টা প্রশ্ন জিজ্ঞেস করে ছেড়ে দিতে পারে, আবার ১৫/২০ টা প্রশ্নও করতে পারেন। তবে মনে রাখবেন—

১. সৎ থাকতে হবে, মিথ্যা বলা যাবে না।

২. যা জিজ্ঞেস করবে, শুধু তার উত্তরই দিবেন, বাড়তি কিছু নয়।

৩. Confidence থাকতে হবে, তবে Over নয়।

৪. সাপোর্টিং সব ডকুমেন্টস সাথে রাখতে হবে।

৫. আপনি USA তে কাজ শেষে দেশে ফিরবেন কিনা, তাও দেখে।

৬. হাসিমুখে ও মার্জিত পোশাকে উপস্থিত হবেন।

ইউনিভার্সিটি এর উপর ভিত্তি করে কখনো ভিসা দেয় না

ভিসা দেয় তার প্রোফাইল অনুযায়ী সাবজেক্ট নির্ধারণ করা,

i20 এবং DS160 তে অসংখ্য ভুল থাকে- স্টুডেন্টদের এগুলো ভালোভাবে খেয়াল রাখা,

এবং ভিসা অফিসারের প্রশ্নের (স্টুডেন্টের নিজের প্রোফাইল অনুযায়ী) সঠিক উত্তর দিতে পারলেই ভিসা নিয়ে আসা সম্ভব।

“মনে রাখবেন আপনার কোথাও ভুল হলে ভিসা অফিসার এটা আপনাকে ধরিয়ে দিবে না বরং আপনাকে কনফিউজড করে রিজেক্ট করবে।”

১। যে university, থেকে i20 পেয়েছেন সেটা ভালো করে জেনে যাবেন। কোন সেশন ও বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় সম্পর্কে।

আমি Expert নই। তাও কিছু বলতে চাচ্ছি।

২। আপনার source of fund / financial support কে দিচ্ছেন। এ সম্পর্কে ভালো তথ্য মাথায় রাখতে হবে।

৩। source of fund, বাবা হলে, বাবার আয়ের উৎস কোথা থেকে এটা ও ভালো করে জেনে যাবেন।

৪। পৃথিবীতে এতো এতো দেশ থাকতে USA তে কেন পড়াশোনা করতে যাবেন?

৫। দেশের বাহিরে অন্য কোন দেশে গিয়েছেন নাকি? (একেবারে অপশনাল প্রশ্ন) F1 সবাই কে জিজ্ঞেস করেনা।

৬। confident is good but not over confident. That’s okay.

বছরের 25 থেকে 30 হাজার ডলার খরচ করে আপনারা পড়াশোনা করবেন আমেরিকার মত একটা দেশে এই সামর্থকটা কয়টা লোকের পক্ষে সম্ভব একমাত্র ধনীর দুলাল দুলালী যারা তাদের জন্য আপনার ড্রেসিং ও সেই লূকটা থাকতে হবে আমার কথাটা অনেকে ব্যঙ্গ করবেন কিন্তু এটাই রিয়েল আপনার সবচাইতে বেস্ট ড্রেসটা আপনাকে পড়তে হবে

1.Why did you decide to go back to college after 11 years?

2.What are the future plans?

A possible answer would be to new skills and grow in my professional career

Answer based on the courses and syllabus; do not generalize answers too much. Be more specific

The reason why you choose this university should be clear. That means whenever you are asked about your University during the interview, you must highlight your personal perspective.

For example, maybe you know someone or any professor from this university or it could be the location or the weather.

Whatever it is that does matter to you and you should emphasize all those points during the interview. And keep praying to the almighty

একটা প্রশ্ন করে যাদেরকে রিজেক্ট করা হচ্ছে তারা আগে থেকে ডিসাইড করে রাখি কার প্রোফাইল রাখবে কার প্রোফাইল রিজেক্ট করবে কারণ অনেক আগেই আপনাদের প্রোফাইল গুলো ক্রস চেক করে নেয়

আসলে ভিসা পাবার ক্ষেত্রে এই যে আপনারা কাউন্টার নাম্বার আর ভিসা অফিসার কে এত প্রাধান্য দেন, এটাই সবচেয়ে বড় ভুল, গ্রুপের সিনিয়ররা সব সময় বলেন যে এগুলো কোনো ইস্যু নয়।

আপনার ds160 ফর্ম দেখে আগেই তারা সিদ্ধান্ত নিয়ে ফেলে যে কাকে ভিসা দিবে, কাকে দিবেনা, এটা অনেক অভিজ্ঞদের থেকে শুনেছি। শুধুমাত্র একজন ভিসা অফিসারের ২/৩ মিনিটের প্রশ্নোত্তর এর কারণে এত বড় সিদ্ধান্ত হতে পারেনা।

দয়া করে এই কাউন্টার নাম্বার আর ভিসা অফিসারকে নিয়ে গবেষণা বাদ দিয়ে, পিছনে কোনো ভুল আছে কিনা দেখেন, সেটা নিয়ে কাজ করেন।
