Good Luck.

very nice narrative - good thing you made it a diary. would have been derailed sharp sharp!

dropping 5h for airport staff hmm

Your first arrival spot looks like Sugar Land ?

I had same thoughts, if it was opened too early, derailing would have been certain. I think it has been controlled now.

Yep, Fort Bend county - Sugar land, Missouri city, Stafford axis. 'CIA agents' here can go and find out the exact place. smiley

About dropping cash, it was voluntary - oga, give us something for breakfast. I had always felt it was a Must, even if I had said 'nothing deh', I would still have passed thru.


I go chop, I deh come... wink

Woke up by past 7, too much wahala I did for yesterday... Toooo much.

Accommodation processing has started, found a place off campus but very close to school. Walking distance to my Faculty is about 12-18mins.

Will complete the processing today and possibly pay. $500 apartment, hoping $100 will cover utilities - split in two and the cost now makes sense.

I have a sample picture but let's leave it for later.

I got a tuition waiver that only requires I pay in-state tuition. I pay as a Texas resident, so that $7800 non-residence fee you see was removed from mine.

Good one
Re: Naija to Yankee Thoughts And Experiences by MackyNaija(m): 7:56pm On Aug 02
I posted this earlier...


I hope to remain only on this thread, no p.m's , no mails, no whatsapp...

If possible, all questions should be asked here...
So others can learn.

Other students can share their experiences...


This user is dedicated strictly to this thread, please understand and bear with me. Thank you. smiley

No need to code so much....

People need to get aware of actual costs associated with schooling in Yankee.

Ask questions here and I'll answer as truthfully as possible. Thank you for understanding.

1. Prices change depending on alot of factors. Check on booking sites in Nigeria.

2. That's a personal question, but it doesn't mean I cannot answer it. Let us stick to questions relating to schooling in the US.

I cannot tell, it depends on several things like what your school charges, what waivers or scholarships you got or if you get an on campus job to Support you.

My school requires $27+k for 1st year Msc for my program. I am working towards reducing this to as low as I can.

It isn't automatic, I know two students who weren't offered any.
Make your admission package as good as possible, then you stand a chance.

Texas AnM, Kingsville, that's the name.

Instate - You pay as a Texas 'resident'

Out of state - You pay as someone not from Texas including international students. More explanation is available on Google.
