Hello Ravi,

During visa interview one of the thing you need to prove is that your are a genuine student and you wish to study in USA. You may prove that the program you have applied is unique and not provided in India or the university you have applied is better than one in India.

When you apply to community college in USA, the visa officer believes that there are better institutions available in India. Hence the visa officer doubts your intention of study in USA. I cannot provide any reasons to you but you need to answer the above question and post it so that I can evaluate the same for you.
