VISA APROVED this morning @ US EMBASSY LAGOS around 9: 45 am
A silent follower on this thread that wants to give back after learning and gained a lot from this thread.
Prepare very well all the V.O wants to assess is your genuineness as an F-1 student
Interviewed at Window 1 by a White man after sharing Blue Papers for those i was behind on the queue
Me : Good Morning
V.O: Good Morning,How are you?
Me: Am fine and You.
V.O: Am good ,Thank you very much
Me. Pass me your Passport and I-20(Passes it to him )
V.O: What will this Doctorate degree do for you?
Me: This degree will give me the skills, knowledge and every other thing needed to develop myself in Mechanical Engineering and also gives me the opportunity to get the skills to establish an energy research laboratory in Nigeria to solve the energy issue we are currently facing in Nigeria, this issue had lingered on from when I was small and is yet to be solved whereas this is a past scenario in U.S.A,and am looking at transferring the Technology to Nigeria by learning how the US passed through this hurdle because am quite sure US was once having energy challenges
V.O: Why WVU?
ME: WVU is a Tier 1 public research institution in the U.S. The mechanical engineering department in the Mechanical and Aerospace Faculty of the Benjamin Startler college of Engineering and Mineral Resources has a concentration in Energy Technologies which aligns with my research goals and Interest and gives me the opportunity and skills to come and establish an energy research laboratory in Nigeria where research in Bleep Energy generation will be carried out (As I was rushing and giving him as he dey hot…O gbona feli feli……… As inNo stopping, Matching the pedal really hard like say I have finally picked up and gained Utmost Momentum to Crush any V.O just Kidding ooooo )
V.O: (Cuts in ) Just relax, relax ,relax
Me: ( Me for my mind :No time una must hear this…… Continued my explosive jargons) Also among the University I got admitted to it offers me an affordable Tuition
V.O: Do you have a Masters?
V.O: Your Highest Qualification is Bachelors?
Me: Yes, Have a Bachelor from Federal University of Technology,…… ,in Bleep Engineering , Year 20..
V.O: Who is your Sponsor?
Me: My Father
V.O: What is he Into
Me: Real Estate
V.O: Do you have his bank Statement?
Me: Yes ( Handed it over to him)
V.O: Did you take any Standardised Test?
Me: Yes, GRE had a total score of 309 157 Quantitative,152 Verbal and I also took TOEFL combined Score 101 ,Listening: 26, reading: 26, writing: 26 , Speaking : 23
V.O: Have you travelled out of Nigeria Before?
Me: Yes. Went on a School trip to Niger republic in 2016 during my service Year.
V.O: What do you do?
Me: I work in an Bleep Company told him my position and roles.
V.O: Hope the School is going to offer you research grant ( Seems He wanted to say research position)
Me: Yes., they promised to award me research grant when I get to the school after registration as the department’s policy don’t award graduate positions prior to registration
V.O: Do you have any Professor you will be working with?
Me: Yes ,Professor Derek Johnson of the Mechanical and Aerospace Department
V.O: ( Went to the school’s website and to the Mechanical and Aerospace department's faculty members website seems he could not locate the professor among the professors whose name starts with D so he asked what his second name so I told him Johnson so he found the name among professors with Letter J as his name was written Johnson Derek and not the other way round) Have you contacted him?
Me: Yes I have contacted him(Cuts me)
V.O : Via Email or Skype?
Me: Only mail, seems he is currently busy will meet him when I get to campus
V.O: Do you have a Research Thesis?
Me: Yes,Generation of Bleep Energy
V.O: (Seems my Fingerprint was not well captured) Did you do the fingerprinting capturing?
Me: Yes (Recaptured my fingerprint himself again)
V.O: What do you think might hinder this bleep energy generation in Nigeria?
Me: I feel government policies might deter it and also am not sure if the technology Transfer will fit perfectly into the Nigerian system as every country has their own specification ,This is why I will need to come and establish an Energy research laboratory in Nigeria which will be specifically designed to proffer solution to a typical Nigerian Situation (cuts me)
V.O: I will be approving your VISA (Brings out white paper ) You will be needing this at the Port of Entry, Pick up your Visa at Victoria Island branch.
Me: (Thank you Jesus for my mind. its been God always)
Recommendation not an Expert oooo just a Guideline:
1. God first ,commit all to God’s hand(Prayer and Fasting) if it is his will it will be approved. If not just know God has a better plan for you at the moment
2. Do your research very well as it builds your confidence and you will be able to convince the V.O easily.
3. Have confidence , Be honest and conversational in your response and answer question with reasons.
N:B : The V.O assess your F-1 eligibility based on the following primary factors which I was privileged to hear directly from a V.O at a USA student Visa Orientation she was even @ window 3 today:
1. Acceptance at a School
2. Possession of sufficient funds
3. Preparation for course of study ; credible and qualified students
4. Present Intent to leave the U.S at the end of studies.
FYI: Am not saying this is the ultimate , I advise your expand your horizon
Thank you very Much all God bless. we will surely meet at the Top,Love you all. Morgantown awon boys tin bo ooooo . Awon ti Evansdale ni WVU where una dey let us hook up abeg . [color=#000099][/color]

Congratulations on your visa. Wish you the very best in the US
However, enough of these transcripts with bleep bleep bleep and ......,...... everywhere. If you can't give a full transcript, keep it to yourself. Thank you
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by Itorobaby: 4:39pm On Dec 07|
hello pls i need schools to apply for MBA, that the tuition fee is not more than 20,000 dollars for two years. THANKS
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by HiredGames(m): 4:49pm On Dec 07|
I wish I could.....trust me but 1,343 post seem like a lot.
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by femi312: 4:59pm On Dec 07|
Itorobaby:$20k for two years? That will be a miracle. ''Although the cost of an MBA degree can vary, the average tuition for a two-year MBA program exceeds $60,000. If you attend one of the top business schools in the U.S., you can expect to pay as much as $100,000 or more in tuition and fees'' That is a quote from google since you are lazy to do the research. And if you decide to attend a one building school for MBA, be ready for the hustle/depression that comes with getting jobs after graduation. A simple google search brought this link, I didn't spend up to 5mins and I have not lost my head nor one of my arm,try to fish before begging for fish. http://www.happyschools.com/cheapest-public-universities-mba/

ABIM2016:Congrats...God bless your new journey
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by HiredGames(m): 5:17pm On Dec 07|
I see too many transcript with too many hidden details.
Hiding when you graduated
Hiding your test score
Hiding research topic
Hiding what your Uncle do
I wonder what ya'll are hiding, or could Twoods assertion be true? Abi if you have nothing to hide, why are you hiding so much
Come to the Canadian student visa thread and come and see how open people are!
Nawa for all of you o.
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by Daodudavid(m): 5:23pm On Dec 07|
Bros femo, pardon my ignorance, but sometimes you consider yourself not always right and perfect, I made a statement you contradicted it, not knowing my source was actually true, next time ask question sir lol
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by Etap: 5:23pm On Dec 07|
Pls is it advisable to Refire again this same month or one should just difer admission, kindly advice me (spring 2018)
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by sotall(m): 5:24pm On Dec 07|
steffanym:The most important thing is that you need to have someone who is still a student in uniben who will help you in running around (very important), if the person is in same department as you graduated from, that will be nice.
Then you apply officially through Transcript exchange site. Register and pay. Then call your friend who will help you in running around from your department to exams and records to monitor the process and put the needed pressure when it is necessary on anyone that is slowing the processing down.
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by jerrypeacelinks(m): 5:26pm On Dec 07|
You don't have to be scared bro. You got it all wrong from the first question but we get to learn everyday. See the bold, readdress it and refire.
Bold 1: Does it mean if your company had not advised you to improve your CV, u wud never have thought of it in ur life time? That's the first red flag. Shooting urself in the leg.
Bold 2: just like someone rightly pointed out here, go straight to the point when answering questions. My father imports equipment and he is a contractor. Do not beat around the bush. VOs don't have time. Their hands are itching to delay your visa. Don't think they are in a hurry to dish you the white paper o

Daodudavid:No I didnt, I asked questions but you were being defensive. The onus falls on you to explain when I was curious.
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by LagosismyHome(f): 5:44pm On Dec 07|
Sorry about your delay but you gave the impression that you have no ownership of your life. You just do as you are told. That not a good way to sell yourself at all
Read these two responses above . A Better response who be i want to improve my cv and take my career to the next stage ....
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 12 by naijarazzi: 6:05pm On Dec 07|

What did I say wrong?? He had denied three people seeking f1 visas just before me. He looked strict and businesslike. He was typing all through and was barely looking me.
