Will prior visa denials hurt my chances?

I am very early in my process, but I am already a tiny bit nervous about the interview after reading lots of posts the last few weeks.

Just thought I would ask if my potential red flag(s) would be something we can’t overcome.

A little of my story: We met via the internet in September 2009, after I got back from being in BJ for 2 months. We met in person for 8 days in December 2009. Then went on a trip together for 12 days in February. Both trips I stayed a few nights with her and her parents at the parents apartment. She also has her own apartment. I am planning on going back for 9 days in May or June and again for the interview. I feel like I put a little extra in my 129F packet but maybe not an overwhelming amount like some of the posts I read after sending recommended. I was divorced 6 years ago and my fiancée was divorced 1½. I’m 43, 10 year age difference. Her degree is in English so she speaks very well.

My only red flag I am aware of (if there are others let me know) is that she was denied a US student Visa twice, once November and again in December 2009 (after the university setup another interview for her). She was already thinking of getting her MBA before we started communicating, because her brother got a MBA in Japan and has become really successful, so this was something she would like to also, sort of a new family tradition. The Embassy denied her because she had too good of a job and she didn’t need a MBA.

Thanks for any insight into what I should do to get ready for the coming packages.

Should not be a problem, just that as 2 data points. The visa category for THEN and the one she's applying for NOW are not the same, is different rules and regulations.

But please consider the totality of the casefile - petition and visa application -

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
