I have already written a detailed note about my exceptional (if I can say that) experience that I have been through. I’m a good student and I have been promised to get a student VISA several times in Sana’a and Cairo. Unfortunately, I was refused every time although every required and needed document to prove my ability to study there was ready. It’s known that American policy and rules protect people’s rights and American universities urge smart students to join them. Therefore I decided to study in the States. Getting refused has really hurt me a great deal. I’m wondering why! And the question is “Is there another kind of students entitled to go to the States?” or “Is it just a matter of choice depending on consul’s moods?”
