QUESTION: So YOu Mean To Say, That The Better Option WOuld be To Get a Sponsor From My Parents, RIght ? But that takes time.
Is their a possibility of not letting them know that i have relatives there ? as i want to study, and by sponsorship it would take more than 5-6 yrs,and i would lose very precious time of my studying life . !Thanks
ANSWER: I can not recommend to you to hide info from them. If they find out they will charge you with visa fraud and cause future problems for your green card.

QUESTION: What makes you think that they wont give it to me ? I have no criminal record ? !, I have never been associated to criminal activities, My grades in school are always good, and i can get an admission in a good College, and i have enough property here ?and My Parents have enough money to pay for my study expenses in US , So Whats the reason ? I am sure that you have some reason for saying that, Thanks !

Answer
You fit the profile of someone who would stay permanently ionce they are here. You are young and single. In addition, you have parents who have status here and can apply for you. For those reasons, they will not be likely to give you a non-immigrant visa.
