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.

Make God help us.

In as much as I'm in support of oludare.. I don't get ur point sir.. it is normal to feel unsafe esp if you've been scammed.. there're a lot of thieves out there.. don't blame the ones with trust issues .. that might actually be their last cash and for what reason? To be scammed at the later run..
just like oludare said.. if you have trust issues don't message him.. if you're willing to risk it .. fine..

congratulations to people granted their visas..wishing all the best. The question I want to ask is that what is normally on the content of i-20 form and lastly my school said I should include affidavit of support and bank statement in d admission packet.

I want to use my dad bank statement but I want to ask if they very the bank statement I mean the SCH because my father do make large withdrawing from account cos is a business man. so am afraid e might have withdrawn money as at the time when the sch might verify so they can see not too much money inside.


I want to ask if the US sch confirm statement of account . thanks

Hi walspring,

Hope it won't be an issue that I already filled it and that i uploaded my passport on it if I intend to start a new one. What will happen to the previously filled one?

Walspring:


Nothing to worry about just refresh the page it will surely load or use another browser and it will load

I understand your point, but if you check on this thread and you see names that are frequently mentioned as those that help pay sevis fee and all, and you are willing to risk your money why continue asking questions? Honestly it gets annoying at some point. I won't be suprised if it pisses some people off and they totally stop helping

Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by neurosci: 7:52pm On Jul 07
These thread has been moving since Part 1, and so many people have been getting their visas approved ever since. A lot of those who have moved to the US have been coming back here to give back in one way or the other such as helping to pay SEVIS fees, guidance, etc. Many thanks to such people.

There is however one more area I wish some people could come to give back. And this is the "life after school" area. I believe that the majority of those who got their visas approved between the Part 1 and Part 5 of this thread must have graduated from their respective institutions in the US. And we all know that life after school is always a totally different ball game from life before and during school.

Hence, I want to ask, how has it been getting jobs in the US after school and living that American dream that you envisaged when you applied for your student visa? Any tips on how you went about your job applications? Any mistakes you want us to learn from? How about getting the green card? And to those of you who truly fulfilled the oath you took when talking to the VO that you would return to help develop Nigeria upon completion of your studies; how has it been getting a job in Nigeria with a foreign degree?

Please, note that it is not out of place to discuss this issue on this thread, as it would enlighten both those who are on the verge of graduating and those of us who are still making decisions on this academic surjourn. But if a separate thread has already been created for this purpose, pls do not hesitate to refer me there.

I hope that those who have graduated would comment.

Carry enough packet of Knor, it's about $8 per pack in the US. Also Carry enough cray fish too, you can get very nice white beans in the US. The rest pls carry enough of them, you really don't wanna run out of them in a short time.

To God be all the glory. I want to specially appreciate Texrem, I only sent him a pm to help me pay my sevis fee and he followed me up since then. For the advice, encouragement, support, mock interviews, I am grateful. God bless you.
So, I went for my first interview on Tuesday, June 20. I was the fifth to be interviewed by the guy and all four before me were denied. Here's the transcript:

Vo: pass me your passport and I20
Me: here they are
Vo: I see you are going to west chester university
Me: yes
Vo: what course will you be going for?
Me: masters in public health
Vo: okay, how many schools did you apply to?
Me: 3
Vo: list them
Me: university of Maryland, Pennsylvania State uni and west chester university
Vo: so, why not Penn State
Me: west chester was actually recommended to me by a senior colleague at work who graduated from the school and the tuition is affordable...cuts in
VO: what do you do currently?
Me: I am the superintendent pharmacist at xxxxx Pharmacy in ilorin
Vo: okay, who will pay your tuition?
Me: my dad and my uncle
Vo: what do they do
Me: my dad is a permanent secretary while my uncle is a civil engineer, he has his firm in ilorin and abuja here.
Vo: I'm sorry I can't approve your visa now, the reasons are stated in this letter.....next applicant window 6....
I was weak.
Two days after, I paid another visa fee and booked July6 Lagos consulate. I just kept praying to God. I read all transcripts on the thread, both delayed and approved and I practiced consistently.
Fast forward to July6
Vo : good morning madam, how are you?
Me: I'm fine, how are you too?
Vo: I'm fine, thank you (sips coffee), pass me your documents
Me: here( I passed my passport and i20)
Vo: tell me about your school
Me: West Chester University is a public school in Pennsylvania State (vo cuts in)
Vo: how did you hear about the school
Me: A senior colleague of mine who graduated from the school recommended it to me after which I went online to do my own research about the school. I read reviews about the school online and I spoke with some of the school's lecturers.
Vo: nods, okay. So, how many schools did you apply to?
Me: 3
Vo: which are the other two?
Me: Penn State University and university of Maryland
Vo: oh, nice. How many offered you admission?
Me: 2, Pennsylvania State University and WCU. My admission at University of Maryland is still pending
Vo: I see, so, y not Upenn (I then corrected him that it's not upenn but Penn State) ,oh okay, y not Penn State?
Me: I chose wcu over Penn State cos I am interested in an ongoing research by Prof Carson on Health disparities in underserved populations, and at present, my community is underserved health wise, I am also interested in the fact that wcu mandates mph graduate students to complete a 6 credits community service course. This allows the students to interact with their community. This exposure will help me when I return to Nigeria after my masters.
Vo: nodding, why public health?
Me: I chose public health because it is a perfect merge between my passion and my training. I will love to join hands with the federal ministry of health and other public health non governmental organisations to help reduce the disease burden in Nigeria especially those diseases that easily plaque us, such as tuberculosis, malaria, HIV... Also, on a long term, I would love to establish my own community pharmacy so that people in my community can easily access health care.
Vo: I can see that you currently work as a pharmacist
Me: yes, a superintendent pharmacist in ilorin
Vo: when did you bag your pharmacy degree?
Me: 2014
Vo: did you take gre or gmat
Me: I took gre and toefl
Vo: good, who will pay your tuition
Me: my dad and my uncle
Vo: what do they do?
Me: my dad is a permanent secretary and he's also into consultation services, my uncle is a civil engineer and he has his firm in ilorin and Abuja
Vo: smiling, I will be approving your visa,
Me: thank you with full smiles ( I almost knelt to say the thank you). I then ran out.

My advice: be positive, be confident, do not cram but practise consistently cos it is very easy for one to get hooked on a very simple question, one might just not find the right words at that time.
Most importantly, pray well. God did mine.
I wish all going for their interview the very best.
