Here we go.... good luck to everybody.

Please share your IV and rejection call in this thread!

Hopefully everybody will get a spot!






  #2

well my first rejection, Univ of Alabama. they said they dont accept applicants with B1 visa or foreign nationals. Wish they mentioned this on their website.


  #3

Sorry to hear that. As I said elsewhere UAB it's not such a great loss. There are many more and better programs. I'm dreading my first rejection....I know it will suck big time.


  #4

one of the funniest things I know about Visa sponsorship is ETSU. It is a below average program in the Middle of nowhere in TN. They have 2 spots which they could never fill in the match and still they don't sponsor visas. They are missing a lot : If they sponosr J-1 they would get residents of quality they can only dream of, their loss !!! "I have a contact there but didn't apply because of this stupid Visa sponsorship issue" !!!


  #5

Those ppl are just racist. That's why they don't sponsor visa. Their loss.


  #6
