She was continuously typing throughout the interview. She hardly looked at me. She was the same officer who gave us a visa seminar at USEFP. I had asked her too many questions in the seminar. I feared her.
Let me thank ScholarDen from the core of my heart. He helped me out with some technical questions regarding the interview. I had a mock with Faisal that really helped. Thank you so much. Thank you all for answering my queries from time to time.
