My interview experience
My appointment time is 2015-05-28 8:30am. My good friend come with me, we arrive US Embassy around 8:00am.
There is a very long line. But there’re lots of peopel with appointment time after 9:00am. So they’re not allowed to enter the Embassy. I need to thru the crowd and say “excuse me” hundred times.
After that, the procedure is:
security check and a short line.
documents check, there’re Chinese employee to do this. This step needs my passport, DS-160, and photo.
record finger print, there’re US employee to do this.
The officer is a handsome guy, below is the interview:
ask my resume and look it carefully.
ask my research details. I told him my current work.
ask my research plan. But I don’t have that, so I give him our website copy. He compare it with my resume carefully.
ask my dissertation topic. I tell him my current research again, but in different way.
Finally, he told me my application is approved.
