SC app rejected

Postby miks99 » Thu, 19 Feb 2015 1:57 pm

Apply as a family unit or don't bother. Received rejection after exactly 9 months of applying.

SPR>10 years
Income > $400k pa
Homeowner (private property)
Applied for husband and wife. Did not apply for children (girls) due to schooling reasons.
Indian, top tier university, working in IT

While circumstances are always unique, may be useful to note another junior colleague working in the same company at a lower salary level got approved when they applied as a complete family unit (also Indian).

Huh? What do you mean? What restrictions citizens have that PRs dont have?

Even from India side, I dont see any issue. You can do everything that an Indian citizen can do with the PIO card, except vote and buy agricultural land.

"for e.g."? Really? If you're so lazy to use "e.g." improperly to just save the effort of typing three more characters, I can't imagine where else you cut corners in life.

His somewhat incorrect use of the acronym notwithstanding, you guys are nitpicking and making unfounded insinuations based on the usage of an acronym.

'Somewhat incorrect'; how can ah? :)

Here is all you ever wanted to know regarding the correct usage, punctuation and meaning of e.g. and i.e.
http://www.grammar-monster.com/easily_c ... /eg_ie.htm

Believe it is nitpicking if you like, but I used to report to someone (ultimately/right at the top) who was an extreme pedant when it came to usage of the English language. I know my English grammar isn't one of my strengths, far from it, but he used to go through any and all of my draft documents that were with him for approval, and correct all the punctuation in red. There might be 200 such changes on a single page. It clearly really mattered to him, a lot! :lol:
