Any tips? I have my interview and am getting nervous. I even spent 30 min looking at 2 different black ties.

Read my consulate review

1. GET THERE EARLY IT PAYS TO BE FIRST

2. HAVE ALL DOCUMENTS READY TO GO

3. RELAX ITS SO EASY

4. don't worry dress classy but don't overthink some people are wearing sweatpants so they have seen worst..

5. as long as your paperwork is in order and your early you'll be out in 30-40 minutes like me :)!

Believe me after the interview you will laugh at how much you stressed over nothing especially if you get a nice CO which I did they definitely help relieve the pressure. If your able to bring your USC that nice too as they help with the stress someone to hug while your waiting in line early !!

goodluck you'll be fine as long as you have your paperwork!

P.S don't forget to smile your going to marry your USC soon and everything will be AWESOME !!

as you can see I'm still high on the approval letter :P


Hold onto your hat its going to be a bumpy ride!!

but don't worry you'll get through it :luv:
