Thanks Murthy forum for helping me. 

 

Below are my details and background

 

First time F1->H1 stamping

MS in US

EVVC

I took all my client and vendor letters

 

My interview was scheduled at 10:30 am

 

I arrived at 9:30 am and there is not much crowd outside and entered the building

 

Security check: verify your ds-160 confirmation, passport, i797

He asked me for my passport size photo. I gave him and he attached it to these above documents and asked me to wait in line on second floor. If your passport size photo doesnt meet their regulations they will take a photo there itself for $10

 

I was then called for my finger prints and was handed over my documents back . I guess they verified PIMS meanwhile. They wrote some number on the top of DS-160. I guess I had no issue with PIMS

 

Then went to 20th floor for interview

The small room with counters was full with families

 

Finally got a call for my number on counter 3. VO is a young male officer

 

Me: Good Morning

VO: Good Morning. Please provide me your LCA, W-2, Pay stubs, Employment Letter

 

I gave him all those documents

 

VO: Who is your employer

Me: XXXX

 

VO: What is your highest level of Education

Me: Masters

 

VO: Where did you go to school

Me: XXXXX

 

VO: Did you work on your OPT?

Me: Yes

 

VO: Where is your employer located?

Me: XXX

 

VO: Do you have a end client? who is it?

Me: Yes. XXXXX

 

VO: Do you have a client letter?

Me: Yes. I was about to provide him the client letter, but he said not needed

 

VO: What is your role and responsibilities?

Me: Answered them

 

VO: What is your salary?

Me: Answered

 

VO: Does your employer pay you on time?

Me: Yes

 

There was a couple of minutes silence. He was looking at my lca, w-2 and ds-160 info

 

VO: Your visa has been approved. You will receive email from Loomis

Me: Thank you very much. Have a good day

 

Overall it was a smooth experience. I came out of the consulate by 10:20 am

 

I just checked my status and it is showing AP.. any idea what are the next statuses?

 

I will keep you guys posted once i receive my passport

 

Thank you
