Potential F1 Visa Problem?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I've received a fully funded PhD offer from Northeastern and my visa interview is scheduled for next month. However, I may have made a potential mistake in my DS-160. For "Person/Entity Paying for your Trip", I selected 'Self' thinking that it was asking for who is paying for the plane ticket but then later I found out that it actually asks for who is paying for my stay in the US, which is of course the university. Could this lead to a problem/rejection? I've already submitted the form, so I can't change anything now.

I think this question routinely confuses people. Since you can't change it now, I would simply see if it comes up in the interview, and if so then explain that you misunderstood the question. You submitted documents stating that your school will fund you along with your application, and you'll bring copies along with you too to show that there is no problem, so I don't think this should be grounds for refusal of the visa. It's a simple mistake and I am sure you are not the first one to make it. I know this isn't going to make you feel a whole lot better, but I don't think there is a whole lot more that you can do right now.
