In this video, Richard explains what your answer should be if the visa officer asks you a question, why did you choose this course? Let’s see how he teaches us to tackle this one.
 
Richard believes that it is very important to say something like you did your bachelors in computer science and you are going to pursue your masters. Or you can also say that you want to do a research in that particular area, which will help the visa officers believe in your answers. This is a very easy scenario where the justification is accepted by the visa officer. Now let’s consider a different scenario, where you have done your engineering and you would like to do a MBA in finance program which are not related. Then this could be a problem and need more justification for you to convince the visa officer and receive your visa. In such cases you can bring in your work experience; you can say, you’ve had part time or full time work experience in a bank or you have worked in an organization where you’ve had financial exposure, which made you shift your majors to finance. Show them some supporting documents for the same and the visa officers will believe that you are a genuine student who is passionate to study abroad. Richard concludes by saying, always make the officers believe that you are a genuine student and also that you have enough financial support for you to study abroad. 
 
Here is an article that would help you explain the US visa officer as to why you chose the university that you’ve applied for.
