College name helps a lot but how you talk that matters the most. Visa interview is very less about documents (apart from the required ones). I didn’t carry any property documents / CA valuation etc. I believe one shouldn’t worry much about documents. There are very good videos on youtube posted by mumbai / delhi embassy. I would recommend watching videos only posted by embassy other sources are very misguiding.
