Question Reapplying for Visitor visa for CS

I am from india,

I applied for B1/B2 visa to take my exam USMLE STEP2CS in US,I had invitation letter from the ECFMG,sponsership letter from my cousion who is a US citizen,Property and bank statements of my parents.I have been previoulsy to US three times and always been back on time.

One drawback is that i graduated in 2009 and after that i didnt have any work experience in my field as i was preparin for my USMLE STEP1 and STEP 2 both of which i qualified.

The VO asked me the following

why are u goin to US

i answered i am going there to take my exam,usmle step 2 cs

Have you qualified step 1

i answered yes and showed her the score report of step 1 and invitation letter.

When did u graduate

i answered 2009.

why i took you so long to prepare for steps ,where u working any where in between

i answered i was preparing for my steps and i worked in b/w in dubai as computer operator on part time basis.

Why being a doctor you worked as a computer operator.

I said i went to dubai as my girlfrnd lives there and i had to convince her parents for our marriage,i took a bit longer than i expected so to support myself financially there i worked on parttime basis and i also i did clinical attachment at one hospital.

So you went there for ur girlfrnd are u married to her now

i answered no i am planning to get married after i am done with my steps .

I am sorry sir US immigrration policy is strict .No reason given for rejection.

i was shattered ,,,,

All i said to her was truth , i think she didnt buy it...
Now i am applying again ,,,,,,,

I am really shattered i don know wht they will ask again when i apply this time ,,i don know how to change my circumstances ,,,,
Does letter for US senator help...

Any advice i will really appreciate...

I don't wanna scare u n all but its true u need to be employed ,if u r applying for VISITOR visa.
My visa got rejected twice as i was not currently employed ,even though i had been to US 3 times before and i had letter from US senators n all.
good luck ,,,

Default dont lose hope

consular officers evaluate applicants individually.

like for example, r u married? being unmarried is the highest risk of all (thast what i heard)
\
Do u have visas to other countries? If you have visas then it myt be easier to get a US visa

Do have a lot of stamps on your passport?

Gooduck. Pls let us know by going back to this thread if you are approved or not.
