    Administrative processing

    Ever since the interview yesterday my Visa Status says Administrative Processing though. That is what has me worried?.

    Administrative processing

    Hi. I applied for F1 to do my PhD in Chemistry. At the end of the interview she told me I will have to go through Administrative Processing and I should get my Visa the following week. She did not issue me a 221g slip nor request additional info. She just kept my passport and I20. Should I be concerned?
  4. Anyone here with a full assistantship and had a visa interview? Did they require showing additional funding even though all your finances will be covered by the school?

    That is normal.

    J-1 visa

    If I get a full teaching assistantship (tuition and stipend) from a university, does that mean I have to apply for a J-1 visa?

    Congrats! That is a good school and good location. I do recall reading that stipends and tuition assistantships are available. Your stipend should go far in that location. https://chemistry.buffalo.edu/graduate/financial-support/

    Why would a member of the graduate committee contact you to let you know they are reviewing your application and talk about their research and state they are open to questions regardless if you choose their lab or not? Would this mean my application is favorable or am I reading too much into this?

    Sounds interesting indeed. My graduate degree was biotech in nature and I totally enjoyed working with LC-MS. I guess we are working in the reverse of each other lol. Me starting out in biotech and moving to forensic and you starting in forensic and moving into biotech. Hahaha!
