Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part3 by Freddieyankee(m): 4:08pm On Jul 19, 2012
obusco4lyfe: dts d issue, i dnt hv any1 2 do it 4 me in such a short tym....d sch deadline is Aug 1st

If the school deadline is August 1st then don't bother cuz first u don't av your I20 and you don't av an interview date with the embassy.
Best advise,find someone the united states to help you pay and also ask the school to change your admission to January 2013 with that you can get more time to go get yourself ready.

Julie55:
Thanks for the response.
No one has filed for an immigrant visa on my behalf.
The first interview went okay. Normal questions were asked till the VO said 'why do u want to change career?'
I did not answer that well. (I have a couple of friends who are dentists going for Public Health who got their Visas.)
My documents-Bank statement, with supporting letter just as u said,School certificate, GRE+ TOEFL scores, admission letters,NYSC certificate, and the other school documents- SERVIS, I20, etc.
Graduated 2009, works as a denitst.

In my own little advise, please make sure in ur next interview try as best as you can to b bold and look the VO in the eye....
Secondly,since you already graduated in Nigeria and works as a dentist it would have been great if you choose something similar to your line of study.
Thirdly, ask the school for a letter to the embassy stating they were very okay with the documents you provided and that the school is expecting your arrival.
If for any further questions please feel free to write me at orjifredricks@yahoo.com

I know, I meant hope its not a community college's I-20 ur taking for ur interview. . . You know what they say about Community colleges here. . . VO can use that as a reason to reject u

It doesn't matter wether it a community college or not.... If the VO finds you good enough to study in the states u will b granted a visa....
Your composure matters alot, do not look down when talking them that makes them believe you are nervous, make sure you have all supporting documents ready....
Most times they don't ask you for ur documents, use your number 6 when answering a question and support your answer with documents...

obusco4lyfe: with wat i've learnt on this thread, they usually reject those who aren't fresh frm high sch i.e those who hv a diploma already. As 4 me, i don't!

That's a lie, fresh or not.... I am a living testimony I finished high school in 2001, had a diploma in marketing in 2004.... And I got my visa in 2007 so I wasn't fresh at all.
Listen bro it all depends on how your compose youself,listen to the questions and your answer should be short,smart and straight forward. Best of luck

Zone 2 Zone: I was denial at US Embassy in ABJ today. I wanted to re apply on monday but the problem is that I don`t know if am going to get a date in first week or second week of august. cos my school resume third week of august. I`ll come back and narrate my ordeal at the Embassy

Sorry for the denial,
I don't no how quick u wanna come to the states but if I'm to advise you I would have asked you to give it time and not rush back for another interview.
First of all call your school and ask them to send you another I-20 for January 2013, that will help you re-arrange yourself and also ask your international advisor to attach a letter stating that they were satisfied with documents and that the school is will expecting you for the school semester stating the time and year. Good luck

tijehi: So I have been on this thread since 2010 and I have been following up throughout my GRE and TOEFL process, through my application process and through my spring rejects but I finally had my interview last Friday and this is how it went down.
It was pretty short (about 3 mins) as I told God I wanted the previous day and out of my over 20 documents, only 2 were requested by the VO.
I was at the Lagos embassy and about 4 VOs were interviewing:the African-American on Counter 1,one white guy on 2,one elderly guy on 3, and one other guy on the last counter.
The guy on C2 refused all the women that came for visiting(Did he think they were pregnant undecided). Anyway my token number was 174 and when i saw 173 on C2, I don dey fear but I don dey prepare my mind for a difficult interview even though I was sure I would make it.Suddenly C1 flashed 174 and I walked up to him on jelly legs. It seemed I had forgotten everything I had rehearsed. Anyway....
The Interview
Me: Good morning
VO: Pass your documents, please.
Me: I passed them. He scrutinized them and at the same time was looking at my face. Maybe he dey look this small boi wey dey go do PhD. huh
VO: Did you take the GRE?
Me: Yes I took it (I passed him my scores).
VO: Do you have your transcript?
Me: Yes, I do. I pass am.
VO: Looked at my transcript and asked 'What is ecology?' I guess this question came up because I studied Botany and I am going for a PhD in Ecology.
Me: I don already dey blow answer afterall na my turf na, but he stopped me and asked:
VO: What is the difference between Botany and Ecology?
Me: Botany is basically the study of plants while Ecology is the study of plants in their environment..both biotic and abiotic. Short like that, I no sabi talk too much wink
VO: So what will this degree do for you?
Me: Well, I already work here as a ...... so it will enable me get promoted more rapidly in my place of work.
As I was answering the last question He was already tearing the green ticket.
VO: Alright, I am granting you your Visa, go and collect it on Wednesday at Ikeja.
Me: In a small voice..thank you. I was trying to hide a smile but I was not successful. grin
All the best guys, I will try to be available to answer any questions. Cheers!
[/color][color=#006600]



I Sure say the VO no even know answers to the questions him ask u like the difference b/w ecology and botany. grin

Hey! Please be advised. Whatever you input must tally with what you have on your form I-20.

Therefore, duration or length of stay= 36 months(according to your I-20)

For accommodation, the answer is 'your school address on your I-20' since you do not have a place yet.

Peace!
