Default student visa - re interviews

Hi,

I have a friend who has applied for a Canadian Student Visa. He was
told to go for an interview on a particular day. He went for the
interview and was asked many questions. Basically interigated.

He supplied proof of sufficient funds, place to stay, permission from
the institute in Canada and his employer in his country for the leave
of absence.

Now they want him to go back for another interview and say there is a
50% chance yes and a 50% chance no to the visa. Why would he be told
his chances are so minimal? Is it a scare tactic?

He's choosing to specialize through an area offered by an institute
and they asked him why he did not choose a university (since he
already has a degree).
Since when is a Technical School (very well known) not a good
choice???


Is it common for people to go through so many interigative interviews
after you have proven to have what they ask for?

Looking forward to your responses. Thanks!

The problem is that your friend didn't convince examining (interrogating)
officer that he is not an immigrant and that he has substantial ties and
motivation to return to home country after studying in Canada. 50/50 chances
are very good (relatively of course) - you didn't say what is your friend's
home country and what ties to home country he has, so I can't even speculate
more about his chances.

May I know what's your friend's nationality?
