This question already has an answer here:
I have an Indian passport, with F-1 visa living in US. I am travelling to India via Europe (exact point of change of flight isn't fixed, but it is either Amsterdam, Paris or the Frankfurt.) I wish to visit a friend in Paris for 4-5 days while coming back. (And also, we might travel to Netherlands or Spain in this period)
I am wondering, which consulate to apply for tourist Schengen visa in Atlanta, my trip starts on 23rd of May, so I have little more than 3 weeks time. While, it may be considered safe time frame, I wish to expedite the visa approval so that I can book the tickets.
More info: In the past, I have been issued Schengen visa twice: One a student visa from Chennai consulate in India; another, a Business visa issued from Swiss consulate in Atlanta. (Business visa from swiss consulate in Atlanta was issued in just one day, despite they said it might take a week.)
