Another example of why honest folks who follow the rules have to wait so long and be so heavily scrutinized.

Yeah, unfortunately this is probably going to result in a crackdown at the US consulates in India. I say "unfortunately" because the crackdown is going to affect everyone applying for a discretionary visa, including those with legitimate relationships. The same thing happened in HCMC after they broke up a Vietnamese fraud ring in the US a couple of years ago. This sort of thing makes it look like the consulate isn't doing their job, and they don't like getting bad publicity.

Who didn't follow the rules? If the government is allowing some of them to get visas then this must mean that some of them actually thought that the school was legitimate. There was a school office after all.

I feel sorry for the ones who got caught up.

How can more than 900 students sign a document stating they live in an apartment in Sunnyvale, when they actually live and work all over the United States? In order to comply with the requirements of a student visa you must physically attend classes. That's pretty much impossible if the student isn't in the same state as the university.

It's distinctly possible that many of these students thought that this was perfectly legitimate, but I suspect otherwise.

We have a friend who hosts international "exchange students" at their home.

One day, after about 2weeks of their latest student arriving (from Brazil), 2 FBI agents showed up at 7am one morning to ask basic questions and confirm the student was living there.

Among the questions asked, "Have you had contact with any persons from the Middle East?"

Probably just a random spot check, but scary for the student and host family who are completely legit.
