After reading all the experiences over the past 1-2 months…now its my turn to share the experience.
Profile:2012/3yrs exp/5.5 Ielts/No GRE
I went there at 11 and was asked to form a line at 11:30 for 12pm slots,there was a confusion whether to bring photos or not as it was posted in US travel docs website to get the photos as there was some problem with VAC.
Managed to get in by 12:30 after a long queue,after all the formalities were done I was given counter no 9 by the greeters over there.
Was standing in the line,saw approved for a girl and 2 rejects for boys in front of me.later there were tourist visa family applicant which was approved too.
