Please if you have trust issues, DON'T pm me.
Go to seme border and make your sevis payment.
I've seen a lot in the past couple of weeks and I don't want further drama. If you think sevis fee payment is a money making venture, cut the crap! I drive about 6 miles to make the payment, I don't charge you people for gas and some people still have the effrontery to question me.

Another Good Story cool

5th April, 2017

It was a quiet hot afternoon in the city of Ikotun, Lagos state. I was in the living room of my apartment perusing my admission letter. I had just been offered... (Make I no bore una biko) lol.

Fast forward to the morning of this day. I woke up by 2:20AM to use the restroom. Sleep must have remained there because as I got back to my room and jumped on my bed, I didn't get of any of it for the rest of the morning.

While on the bed, I peeped my WhatsApp to see uplifting messages from this awesome gentleman, cmbagwu. He's been of immense help during this period of my preparation for the Interview; from giving me mock interviews to answering all my questions on WhatsApp. Big ups to you, man. Alright, cutting to the chase.

Left my place at Ikotun at about 4:30am. Got to the embassy an hour later. We were made to wait till around 6:15 or so. Security checks followed. That took about 15 minutes. Finally, I saw myself waiting in line to be interviewed. I was number six on the queue.


The window closest to the biometric screening point was the first to resume. A bulky Caucasian female who looked like she might be in her mid-fifties. She approved the first person she interviewed. She denied the second. The second sef no try at all; one girl like that. When she was asked, why do you want to advance to the Masters level, she replied somewhat incoherently, "I like school, education is passion, sorry, my passion, I like education and school". There and then, I silently began hailing all the beautiful minds I met on this thread.

Window 1 was the next to resume. The young man before me was instructed to head there. I was instructed to wait behind him. Dude was denied. Sad something. He wanted to attend a UN conference or run away from Naija, can't say. But I was next in line, standing in front of the VO of Asian descent. The following exchange took place.

VO: Good morning
Me: Good morning (in a uniquely fake american accent)
VO: Passport and I-20.
Me: {tried to hand them to him, instead of just dropping it for him to pick}
VO: Drop them
Me: Eh?
VO: {Called the attention of the CGI Lady} Did you forget to remind them to drop their documents and not hold on to them?
Me: {I felt my intestines form a knot in my stomach as the CGI lady gave me a guy-you-fall-my-hand look}
VO: Why are you going to the US?
Me: I'm going for a Master of Public Administration at East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, with a concentration in Economic Development and Planning.
VO: When did you finish?
Me: 2013
VO: Have you been to the US before?
Me: No. I've not had a reason to. {I was surprise here because after telling him I finished school 2013, I expected him to ask what I've been doing since then. He didn't}
VO: How will you fund your education at ETSU?
Me: I was awarded the International Merit Award by the school which would defray 50% of my tuition costs. My Uncle would foot the rest.
VO: What's your Uncle's name?
Me: Lagbaja Omolagbaja
VO: What does he do?
Me: He's a Marketing Manager with Shell
VO: How long has he been with Shell?
Me: Over 15 years
VO: Oh. {Typing away}. I'll be approving your visa. Bla bla bla

That is it o, my people. Here's my two cents on how to be successful at the interview. Make sure you answer your first question very very well and be as eloquent as possible.

Shout out to all those who contributed to making this possible. Drhopeful, Time2Smile, Scholastica16, happyday, tescoman90, texrem, LagosismyHome, Mayflowa, phdmscbsc, igbonerd, electronic, iCool, seeker88, Okusi, Topiipii, Christian129. The list goes on and on.

I hope this helps somebody or posterity. Thank you all!

You never see anything, some go even dey use call monitor you as if say tomorrow no dey and as if say you wan run with the hard earn money.

But what surprise me and baffles me is that after they got confirmation that sevis paid they won't bother to call you to notify you until you call them.
