Passport Visa interview and CK. HELP

hey guys, Im in India right now. done with step 1.( 95)

Pls tell me, is it essential for one to complete CK before the visa interview?

I scheduled my interview for 24th march and my CK is on 28th april. is that getting me in trouble? do I need to change the interview date?

(I do have several close relatives in the US.)

pls reply asap..

What Visa are you applying for?
Student Visa! What course are you applying?
Tourist Visa! Then there's no difference whether you do or not do CK

Depends on what kinda VISA ur applyin for..
IF tourist visa/B1-then u shud be fine ..no problems.
IF student visa/F1-its sumwat hard to get only based on ur step1 score unless u have been selected for any observerships/research..
