Having had your major in mind, you'll search for schools, preferably state/public universities around the southern part of the US (living expenses are cheaper down south than north IMO). 2 to 3 school will be fine just to spread you risk of being admitted. Also let the prospect of getting funded by the school (Graduate Assistantship) be one of the factors to be considered in determining your school. Check out their app requirements in their website. Google is a great resource all through the process. Just a click and you get what you want. Turn in all the required documents. You may be asked to write the GRE and TOEFL to be considered for GA and that's a requirement. Getting GA is competitive so one has to get high scores in it. Some schools may ask for an evaluated transcript, that is changing it from Nigerian standard to US standard. World Education Service (WES) does that. Once all documents are turned in weather by email or courier or regular mail, the school makes their decision to admit or not. You are contacted after few weeks. Once admitted, most schools ask that you send a financial statement of your sponsor covering an equivalent amount specified for you. You can scan it to them or send it by courier. Once they receive it, they'll issue you your I-20 document and send it to your address. Once you get your I-20, you go ahead and pay SEVIS fee of $200, usually paid abroad, can't be paid from Nigeria. Then you are set for the embassy. Pay the visa fee, fill your DS-160 form online for a student visa (F1), book an appointment and date, get all supporting documents ready, prepare by reading people's transcript on here, pray, and go get your visa. Don't be scared with all the processes lined up here, it's a step at a time thing. Once you are determined, it'll be easy. People are doing this every day. Cheers.

This is Relevant information for newbies... o ya grab your copy grin , Bro God bless you for the time you devoted to gathered this information.

Yes you are not permitted to work off campus except for some exceptions and also the work ONCAMPUS is limited to 20hours during term and 40 hours during holiday

Also when making your plans remember jobs on campus tend to be low wages
and in great demand.

Do not plan on working to cover your education costs.
Work will only top up your funds.

I left home by 3:00am for 6:30am flight to New York on the 5th got to the airport around 3:40am, proceeded to the check point, my bags was checked and the immigration officers requested for money because I carried foodstuff voluntarily gave them 1k, my bags was weighed and I got my boarding pass. i hooked up with my family again to say good bye, it wasn’t easy to bid them farewell, mum wanted to cry, i hugged her and turned my face away in order not to cry too lol. She loves me so much.

Awwwww. This is so emotional. God bless our moms. The immigration guy is a thief


she was like call the number, I was looking for my phone, she said so you don’t know your brother’s number off hand?, I quickly remembered that the number starts with 575 but don’t know the rest, I called that then brought out my phone and called the remaining numbers, told her wanted to be sure. LOL


Nigerians! Must you know your brother's number by heart? Does she know how close you guys are? That was unnecessary to demand from a visitor. She try sha. Why u com dey lie sey u wanted to be sure. lol you nor try o.



The following day (6th) his wife prepared a nice meal for me with tea and milk, we entered train, ferry and took some pictures along the way and finally took me to where I will get a taxi to Laguardia airport, lest I forget she bought me new charger too. Got to the airport, took a connecting flight to my destination.
