I applied for a B1/b2 visa for a clinical elective.

I'm a medical student I still have 1 year to finish university, I live with one of my parents and I have a sick brother who I take care of… in the visa interview the officer didn't ask about why I will return and didn't give me the chance to explain to him.

I want to reapply so I can explain my situation. Should I reapply immediately or wait for 6 months although I might lose my opportunity in this medical elective?

    Do you have a strong previous travel history? Will anything in your personal circumstances change to strengthen your ties to home in the next 6 months, in order to better demonstrate non-immigrant intent? Related question travel.stackexchange.com/questions/133508/… – Traveller Apr 3 at 11:15

    You should not expect to be able to present anything at the US visa interview. Everything needs to be in your application. – Michael Hampton Apr 3 at 14:38
