In the hazy mists of time, the Greeks believed that Olympus was the domain of the reigning gods. High above the clouds, in their abode, they dictated the highest peaks of the heavens to the darkest depths of hell. Olympus was not shaken by winds nor ever wet with rain, nor did snow fall upon it, but the air is outspread clear and cloudless, and over it hovered a radiant whiteness. The summit of Mount Olympus lived and breathed as the meeting place of the gods, strictly restricted to mere mortals. Our products are forged from the mighty thresholds of Olympus from harnessing Zeus’s galvanizing thunderbolts to insure the utmost fortifying ingredients, hammered with Poseidon’s earthshaking trident to maximize brute strength and fused amongst the blistering embers of Hades dark underworld to give us the ultimate products, unknown to man before. Olympus Labs is proud to present a line of products that will turn men into demigods.
Please not that between all of the questions, there was a gap of many 10’s of seconds where she was typing things into the computer and you will be just standing there looking at her. Just stand confidently, do not be hesitant. And above all, prepare well for the interview! Mine was a unique case where I applied to only one university, that too where my relative is an Alumni from, and I got through in that one University with full funding. To outsiders it would seem like I got in because of my relatives influence, since even our department is the same. So I had prepared very well at how to not mention that I knew I would get in to that university and hence applied to only one place but instead portray that I had genuine reasons why I didn’t apply to other universities just like any other student. Your confidence depends on your preparation. My sister and my brother in law grilled me for hours the day before the interview, asking me all kinds of tricky questions in every way possible, and since I had faced such difficult questions already, I wasn’t that tensed for the interview since I was sure I knew how to answer any question. Dress well and look confident. Look them in the eye when you speak, speak loudly and clearly. That’s about everything you can do, rest depends on your luck, how good your VO is and in how good a mood they are (i suggest the earliest possible time slot in the morning since they will be more fresh). Also, I was an F1 applicant in a crowd of other visa categories. In my entire while, I might have seen maybe 3 students, that’s all! This is because I applied very early, almost at the 120 day limit. Hence, not many students had started taking their interviews. I believe this played a role as well, if you apply around mid May or later, there will be MANY F1 visa applicants and there would be greater chances that your visa can get denied. Hence I would suggest apply as early as possible (within the 90 day limit obviously). All the best for your Visa interviews!
