U.S. Embassy: Interview Questions

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Why do you want to study in the United States as opposed to your own country?

The accreditation for the master’s in project management in Jamaica has not yet been approved, while the master’s degree program at the George Washington University has been accredited for over six (6) years and has achieved global recognition by the Global Project Management Board. In addition, the program covers all the knowledge and skills covered by the PMP Certification. In my country to earn the PMP Certification, it is done separately from the Master’s program which means additional cost and time.

Why do you want to attend the college/university you have chosen to attend?

The George Washington University is a world renowned educational institution and has been listed in the top three (3) most recognizable institutions for the master’s program in Project Management. As such it is a more favourable choice due to the international recognition of its programmes through global accreditation. As such gaining this knowledge will allow me to be a cut above the other applicants when applying for the same role in my country.

What can you tell me about the college/university you wish to attend?

The George Washington University offers more than 100 online programs where you earn the same degree as students who study in the classroom and they offer more than 240 graduate programs at their multiple campus locations in different states across the United States of America

How do you plan to pay for your studies?

I have saved $10,000 USD from working at Xion Engineering & Construction Ltd for over three (3) years and I have the bank statement as proof to show the amount. In addition, my uncle who is a well-respected businessman has offered to assist with the remaining $5000 USD which will be financed through his registered business. I have the Affidavit of Sponsorship as proof and a bank statement from his financial institution

What are your plans after you graduate?

Following the completing of the degree program I will return to my country to apply to one of Jamaica’s most prestigious project management firm in the construction industry to gain at least two (2) years’ experience then I will venture out to start a construction company of my own in Jamaica, where I will be able to use the knowledge and skills gained to properly manage my team and run a successful construction company

Have you ever traveled before?

Yes I have travelled three (3) times on the US J1 Visa, while I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Construction Management at the University of Technology, Jamaica and once for two (2) weeks on the visitor’s visa to visit my uncle in Florida.

Where will you stay while you attend school?

I will be staying on campus while I pursue my education at the said university

Isn’t it your true intention to work and party while you’re in the USA studying?

No currently I’m focused on the path that I have chosen and I wish not to be distracted with parties nor do I have the intention to work as my sponsor will cover the amount as stated on the affidavit of support and I will be pursuing scholarships hence my ultimate goal is to focus on my studies and acquired a superb GPA and graduate with first-class honours then return home to start my professional career as a Project Manager for a renowned construction firm

I desperately needed a letter of explanation to apply for my Canadian student visa and didn’t know where to turn. During my late night studies, I took a break and was just browsing through the internet and I came across Expedite Travel Services (blessing in disguise I tell you!) I sent then a message, not expecting a reply until the next day and then bam I was speaking to someone about the need for the letter. They were EASY to deal with, they knew exactly what I wanted and the process was soo easy. Everything was done to the ‘T’ and I’m a happy customer as I was successful in my application, I wouldn’t recommend any another company.

I’m in Canada pursuing my bachelors! Just awesome!
