All went super well until I got rejection. TWICE!” – Canada Student Visa Story
Looking at the response from our previous success stories, we decided to share with you yet another story. But this time, it is about failure. Everyone talks about success, but nobody has the courage to talk about failures.
That is why we decided, why not break the barrier and tell you a personal story. The kind of story about not giving up and taking the risk. Today in this fun Q/A blog we are going to share a story that will motivate you to give a try for your dreams.
Say hello to Jay Patel
Jay is an IT engineer student. Born and brought up in Vadodara, Jay completed his studies back in 2018. On a usual day, you will find Jay hanging out with his girlfriend. Yes, you read that right. He does not have any hobby except playing football, chilling with friends and of course coding.
So Jay, How are you doing?
Honestly, I am doing well. In fact, I am quite content. I enjoy working from home. Of course, with pandemic and everything going around, the world is becoming shitty. But I am hopeful that this shall not last forever and we all will overcome this. So yeah! That pretty much sums up about how I am doing.
Jay, so happy to see you being so optimistic. This Q/A session is specially conducted only to motivate people in taking a risk and achieving in what they truly believe in. Tell us about your story.
Okay, firstly, we are left with no option other than being optimistic. You should know that since we know each other for decades now.
Coming to my Canada student visa journey, I must say it was one hell of a ride but worth every penny. I always wanted to pursue masters abroad. It would be like stepping out of your comfort zone and doing everything on your own. That really excited me.
In my last year of college, I decided that it’s high time to start researching about the universities. I shortlisted some of the best universities and colleges. But the confusing part was which country to select. Should I go to the USA, Canada or the UK or even Europe? I did get an offer from an MNC so double confusion.
I did me researched and settled. Canada it is then! Here is my overconfidence came into the picture. I was super confident of you know “doing-everything-on-my-own” and no consultancy help needed. All went super well until I got rejection. TWICE!
Woahhhh! Well, that might made you feel like giving up. Why didn’t you? What pushed you forward?
Yeah! Initially, I felt like giving up and you know just forget about it like any normal thing. But, what really affected me was despite good score in IELTS, academic, and providing all documents, they rejected me.
That is when I knew I am going Canada anyhow. I am having a good score. Maybe if I push myself a bit more I can score better. But this time I decided to take IELTS classes and consult an immigration expert.
How did you come across OSI? How was it consulting with us? Tell us about your experience.
Okay so here’s the thing I wouldn’t suggest to anyone to pick random immigration consultancy. I picked OSI because it was newly opened and walking distance from my home. Don’t be lazy like me. Do your research and go to consultancies as much as you can. Clear all your doubts.
I was lucky enough to find OSI in the first go. But, DO YOUR HOMEWORK. My experience has been good in consulting with OSI.
Initially, Nirav sir really helped me out in everything. Giving me multiple options about the colleges, courses, and the after benefits of getting PR. Later, I was introduced to Mansi ma’am and Monty sir who took over my case. Again, they both turned out to be realllyyyy helpful.
I told the student visa team that I do have rejection twice. I don’t know! Neither of us was confused. Both I and the SV team were confident. But they did mention about the risk involved. But by that time, I was determined enough.
AND, I did get my visa okay! I got it!
How did you feel at that moment?
Honestly, I felt happy about not giving up. If I would have then I would not be here. But also thankful to OSI for guiding me. I would suggest consulting an expert and not just do it on your own. Because at some point you will need help. And what really surprised me that the process went so smoothly. Like LITERALLY!
Any advice you would want to give our future clients?
When I said about not giving up it was because I had good academic and IELTS score. That really gave me hope to give one more shot. Apart from that, believe in honest consultancy and guidance. So many fraudulent activities are going around in the market. Just be aware. Don’t hesitate in asking about your doubts. It’s completely alright.
So, that was all about Jay who is in Canada and working from home as of now. We enjoyed talking to him as we both have one thing in common and that Liverpool #YNWA.
Apart from that we genuinely hope that it encourages you to apply for the student visa. Don’t give up on your dreams. Failure is also a sign of success! For more information about student visa, visit us or call us NOW on 084600 24200.
