I’m a 23 y/o single woman from the Philippines. I recently graduated from college and will be taking a board exam this March 2018. Exam results (and further licensure application processes) will be released some time in June 2018. Now, my boyfriend (who came here just last year to see me) will be graduating from grad school this May, and his Mom has offered to sponsor my 2-3 week trip so I could meet his family and attend the graduation. I also have a newborn cousin that I’d visit if I get approved. I believe I have a fairly strong case, but of course I’m still doubtful.
EDIT: I forgot to mention an important factor: I was issued a Schengen visa just last November 2017. I spent a month visiting 8 different Schengen countries from the middle of December to middle of January. I’ve also been issued a S. Korean visa and have traveled to other SE Asian countries.
