VO: Mornin' passport please.  
*I gave him my i20 along with my passport.* 
VO: I just need your passport sir, that's all I'm asking for.  
ME: Okay haha. 
VO: University of Illinois at Springfield huh? 
ME: Yes sir.  
VO: So how many backlogs did you have? 
ME: I had 19 backlogs in my UG.  
VO: You failed in so many subjects, if you go to the US, you can't even graduate. You'll drop out and start working in gas stations and come back. 
ME: Sir, to be completely open with you---*vo says "please, go ahead. That's what I want"* my academic profile is ugly. And with such a profile as this, I cannot hope to get a good *** despite of the fact that Hyderabad has a good IT industry. And I am also aware of the fact that masters is one level above the UG. So I had taken a few measures to see that I can cope up with the subjects I'm gonna take in my masters.  
VO: what's that? 
ME: All the subjects I'm going to take in the university of Illinois at Springfield are based on Java. And I am an Oracle certified professional java programmer. I'm sure I can--- 
VO: *he interrupts me* Okay, approved. 
ME: Thank you sir. It was a pleasure meeting you. 
VO: Bye!
