H4 to F1 COS stamping rejected

Postby sirisha » Tue, 22 Dec 2015 09:44:19 -0500

Hi,

I went to US on H4 and applied for COS to F1 in my master's 2nd semester. My COS from H4 to F1 is approved by USCIS. I have completed 3 semesters in my master's( 2 semesters on H4 and 1 semester on F1). Now I am in India to visit my parents. But my F1 visa got rejected when i went for stamping in Hyderabad. Now i have scheduled for another interview immediately (within 20 days) as i have flight back to US in Jan 2016.

Going for 2nd time is a good decision?
What should i do if i get rejected for 2nd time too? Can i go back to US on my H4?
Can i apply for COS again after going back to US on H4?
Will i face any problem in immmigration after 2 rejections?

The possible reason for my rejection:
2 years back, i have applied for B1/B2 visa in India along with my parents to visit my sister who lives in US. My parents got the visa, but mine is rejected as i was pursuing MBA at that time.
But, i discontinued my MBA after my 1st year as i got married and moved to US on H4 visa.

Now, in my interview, i was asked about my MBA. They asked me what am i doing today? I said i am pursuing Master's in Computer Science. They say my record says my degree is in MBA and now i am saying its Master's in computer science and they rejected my visa. They didn't gave me any chance to explain.
