Wink Q & A of Successful Visa Interview

Hello friends, I had my visa interview in ISLAMABAD last week and got my passport today. the experience was a pleasant one and i hope everyone gets it easily as i did. I graduated in April 2012 from china and has been studying since for step 1 and 2 ck. passed both my exams and i am not currently employed. i have scheduled my CS in October. here is what i was asked during the interview. the Visa officer (vo) was an old lady :

vo : Hello, Good morning

me : Good morning ma'am.

vo : why are you going to the US?

me : for taking USMLE step 2 clinical skill assessment examination.

vo : why do you want to take step 2 CS?

me : coz it will help me in completing my certification with ECFMG, and
getting into residency in the united states,and also it will help me getting a better job in Pakistan.

vo : can i see your step 2 CS registration please?

me : of course ma'am.(gave her the printed confirmation of my exam).

vo : when are you going to apply for your residency?

me : in 2015 ma'am

vo : 2015???why so late?

me : coz i have already missed the chance to apply for 2014 residency match,for that i should have taken my CS exam before July, but as i was studying for my step 2 ck and step 1 exam before that, so i didn't have the time to apply for CS earlier, and now i will have to wait for 2015 residency match.

vo : how long will you stay there?

me : 2 weeks

vo : when are you leaving?

me : October the 10th

vo : do you have any family there?

me : no

vo : have you passed your step 1?

me : yes ma'am i have passed both my step 1 and step 2 ck.

vo : have you been to US before?

me : no

vo : have you been to any other country?

me : yes,CHINA

vo : what for?

me : for studies ma'am.

vo : Oww...you went to china for studies. was you medical school in china?

me : yes ma'am, that's right.

vo : OK, your visa has been approved and the American express will contact u in 5 days.

me : thank you.
