Hope this help. U can further contact me if the need arises.

Are you going for your masters or undergrad again? For masters, you'll write the GRE (since you're not going for an MBA, Economics or any other management course, I presume, that requires the GMAT), and for undergrad, you'll write the SAT. At graduate level, TOEFL is waived for most graduate students.
Which semester were you referring to as 'next' semester? Spring 2013 semester? It is no longer possible to get any spring admissions now. Its late. Look forward to fall 2013 semester.
Finally, leave VIU out of the matter and save yourself all the stress of application and payment only to get denied at the embassy. Your GPA is good enough to get you admission in better schools.

In case he asks there are a thousand and one reasons to say to him. Re-application to a better school will better increase your chances of getting your F1 visa.
@Imperiouxx...do get well brov. Cheers.

Fly to JFK and get a ticket Boston from NY. . . . . Would be way cheaper

Egypt air is like $1165 for Jan 8th, then $120 from JFK to BOS (first class is even $180 for this flight)

Note that JFK to BOS would be on the 9th

yemdeb: I have been silently following this thread for a couple of days and i can say this thread is the best thread on the forum. I got my F-1 Visa today at the Abuja Consulate. The chronicle of how i got the visa started on the 20th December, 2012. This was the actual day i was slated for interview. My time was 10.30am and i got to the Consulate at 10.25am. On arrival, i discovered i wasn't with the print out of my appointment confirmation page and i had to rush down to a nearby cyber cafe to get it printed. I got back to the consulate by 11.00am and i was told the 10.30am 'slotters' have been called. I just dashed in and was processed in. To cut the story short, i entered the interview hall.

VO in window 6, a pretty young lady was just celebrating Xmas by issuing out visa to everybody.
VO in window 7, a sturdy man issuing at 50-50
VO in window 8, a stern young woman denying everybody
VO in window 9, a handsome guy issuing at 60-40

Status quo remained the same until suddenly their system went down and there had to be some slight delay. Immediately the system came up, the issuing VO in window 6 started denying, the denying VO in window 8 was replaced by another lady while VOs in Windows 7 and 9 maintained their status quo. Suddenly it got to my turn and i found myself going to window 6.

VO: Good afternoon
ME: Afternoon ma...
VO: Pass me ur documents
ME: I handed the documents to her.......She scanned through my documents
VO: Do you know about SEVIS fee?
ME: Yes.
VO: You haven't paid it and i wont be able to conduct interview for you until this fee is paid..
ME: I already paid..... i showed her the print out of the receipt
VO: The record is not on our system and so we cant interview you.... What i will do is give you a letter that will serve as ur pass when coming some other time. You can come on either Thursday or Friday cos there are holidays on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
ME: OK
VO: Thanks
ME: You are welcome...

END OF EPISODE ONE


EPISODE TWO

Got to the Consulate as early as 6:15am. I was cold to to bone but i wasn't deterred. By 8:30am, we were called in and those of us with G-letters were attended to first. Interview proper started and the VOs that were conducting interviews on the 20th are still the very ones in their respective windows except window 8 that was not yet occupied as at the time i was there.
I was interviewed by the handsome dude in window 9 and it went thus:

VO: (frown) Good morning
ME: (fake smile) Good morning sir..
VO: Pass me ur doc
ME: I gave him
VO: Do you have your form I-20 with you?
ME: Yes i do( i passed it to him)
VO: Why going to the US?
ME: For a master degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology
VO: At which school?
ME: Western Illinois University
VO: And why the school?
ME: Everything i want in a school is present in this school. It has over 10 decades of standard and top quality education which makes it ranked high in usnews ratings. It also has an impressive student:faculty ratio of 15:1 which makes class interaction much more conducive. Worthy of note is...
VO: Its ok......
ME: (i kept quiet)
VO: Why this course?
ME: It fits my career aspiration
VO: How?
ME: It will give me the required knowledge base and technical skill to excel as a manufacturing engineer
VO: OK....When did you finish your BSc?
ME: 2008
VO: What course?
ME: Mechanical Engineering
VO: What have you been doing since then:
ME: I have been working at the production section of an agroscience company....
VO: (cut in) What are your job descriptions:
ME: Ensuring no down time in production. Occasionally carrying out repairs and maintenance on the production line.
VO: Good...did you write any exam, Sat, Gre bla bla
ME: Yes. I wrote GRE even though it is not required by the school
VO: Can i see your score pls?
ME: I mistakenly passed my TOEFL score to him.
VO: No i don't need that. Your English is kind of fluent....
ME: Sorry... i passed the GRE printout to him... he looked at it and them passed it back to me
VO: Who will pay for your studies?
ME: My brother
VO: What does your brother do?
ME: He is an engineer. He fabricates and imports machines and equipments needed for the upliftment of nigeria economy.
VO: Do you have your brothers Statement of Account with you?
ME: Yes.... i passed it to him
VO: He scanned through it page by page before returning it to me
VO: What will you do after your study?
ME: With the knowledge and skills i would have garnered from my studies, i will come and take over the Port Harcourt branch of my brothers business as the MD.

At this point he has already put my passport and application with the rest applications that were earlier granted. He then gave me the pick up paper and the following ensued:

VO: Come pick up your visa on Wednesday
ME: Thanks.
VO: Have a nice day ahead.
ME: You too.

That was how i got my visa at my very first time of applying for it. It was just like a fairy tale. I fasted, though i didn't really pray but i know someone also fasted and prayed. My fiance is a very solid backbone that has been my support. It was a sweet combination of Preparation on my part and Rigorous prayers on the part of my fiance.

My people, the secret to getting your visa is hard work and prayer and i strongly believe with the combination of these two inseparable things, your visa is certain.
One love.



Congrats dear, its Gods doing, i will b joining u in wiu come fall nextyr by Gods grace
