No...they won't give you an RFE, but the process is similar.

If you're missing a document at the interview, most likely they will still conduct and complete the interview. They won't approve you on the spot though. They will give you a 221(g) form <I think that is the official name of the document>, and it will list which documents are missing. You'll then need to collect the missing documents and bring them back to the Consulate.

Once the documents are received by the consulate, they won't bother to interview you again, normally. They'll normally just approve your visa at that point.

Peace!

Just spend your time over the weekend collecting every single document you used for the visa process, and bring it all to the interview! You will have more peace of mind knowing there is nothing left at home. That's what we did! The CO wanted to know whether I was a lawyer because he said they are the ones that bring so many folders of paperwork! :lol:
