Section 214(b) is a section under the Immigration and Nationality Act in the US. It is the section under which a non-immigrant applicant’s visa is refused/ denied.
US laws put emphasis on US non-immigration visa applicants (except H1B and L1) to prove that they are willing to return their home country and have no intention of illegally staying back in the United States or becoming immigrants.
There are many reasons why your visa can be denied under 214B, here are few highlighted ones:
No strong ties to your home country: If you do not show that you have any strong ties to your home country, like family, a job, a house, or other assets that you may want to return to, there is high chance that your visa may be denied.
Interview Problems: If your interview wasn’t great, it can definitely lead to a rejection. How you conduct yourself; how honestly you answer questions; how you are dressed; your reactions and facial expressions; eye contact; hesitation in answering questions; discrepancies in answers to questions and information contained in the application form; nervousness - all go into weighing your intentions, credibility, and eligibility for a visa. Also, if the visa officer thinks that any document of yours is fraudulent (like a work letter or a bank statement), he will reject your application.
Fit overstay profile: There are a set of profiles that have been taken from all the applications that have applied for a visa. These profiles are the ones who have overstayed their visas or applied for extensions in their visas or have illegally immigrated to the US. If your profile matches these profiles, your visa could be rejected.
Multiple long and extended stays in the US: If you have visited the US multiple times for long periods of time and have also extended your stay there, then the officer may have doubts that you have immigrated there, are participating in illegal employment activities, or have immigrational intentions.
Student specific reasons: There are some student specific reasons, which need to be kept in mind as well:
6. Any previous interactions with the police: If you were detained by the police or have been arrested before, then there is a high chance that your visa will be denied.
There are some circumstances that may not even be in your hands like human errors by the visa interviewer, or any misunderstanding that may have emerged during your interview.
While a lot depends on your profile, there are things you can do as well. Here are some tips:

All in all, as a student you have to prove that you are a great fit for your program and that you will gain knowledge and life experience by studying in the US. However, you also need to show that you do wish to come back to your home country.
