I am denied a J1 visa for work and travel program, because of my grades....is the denial going to have a bad influence if I apply again next year ?I don't have any immigrant intent, all I want is to be there for the summer and come back home. I was in USA last year under J1- the work&travel program, I didn't overstay and I don't have criminal record, but when I applied this year again, the VO told me that I don't have enough grades from this year, which happed because of the mistake of my faculty and I was denied. And all I wanna know is if I apply next year again am I going to have the same chances as the other applicants or I will have a bigger risk?
You would have to overcome the reasons for the denial before reapplying.

You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

If you were denied because of your grades and you reapply with the same grades....
An attorney-client relationship is not formed by my responses to questions on Avvo. My responses are not intended to be legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice.
As indicated by others, assuming the only reason for your denial was your grades, if you bring your grades up substantially you should have a reasonable shot. If your grades are not substantially different, and/or if there is some other reason that immigrant intent is suspected, another denial is likely.
This general information does not establish any attorney-client relationship. There may well be factors not mentioned in the question which could and should be addressed in an attorney consultation.
