Thanks. The real work has already begun grin
Yeah. Real work indeed.
These great scores must be supported with an equally great application essay.

well said ..... the Nigerians Twoods sees is different from the ones i see. i have met many hardworking and sincere Nigerians ....

Fraud and other vices is not Nigerian birthright and is a wrong sterotype. how many Americans will cosign for an American so why single out Nigerians

Absolutely. I think people should evaluate “the person” on their own merits and track record and not by generalisation.

There are Nigerians who just want to do earn a honest living, and those who just want to be crooked.

Pls guys I'd like to know when unilag transcript is usually ready after graduation bcuz m currently writing my final exams and working towards admission in the usa for august next yr. I intend writing GRE next year Jan/Feb. Is it possible I get admission for fall next year even as I don't know when my transcript will be ready.

Do not fear, UNILAG is very efficient with this. Transcripts are never prepared unless there is a request; once your results are uploaded by CITS your transcripts can be prepared the next minute. I got mine within two months of completing my final exams, even before convocation.

The previous Account statement was dated and stamp by the bank with reference letter. So what should we do now? Should he ask his Dad to print another statement of account from his other bank and request the bank to send it directly to the school Or[b] his Dad should still reprint the previous one and ask the bank to send it to the school directly[/b]? Please kindly advice. Thanks!

No. the dad should just give instructions to his account officer or the customer care attending to him, asking that his account statements be sent to admissions@xxxxx.edu...something like this. The school does not really care about stamps or signatures because it can easily be forged.

Getting the statements from an address like: xxxxx@gtbank.com or xxxxx@accessbank.com inspires a whole lot more confidence than empty stamps.

It's obvious you've done zero research.

What category of visa are you applying for?

That said, You might want to rephrase your question if you expect answers.




Perhaps, he just wants to travel to donate to Puerto Rico's hurricane struggles.

ok.but maybe some might still accept Ielts ba
It's either IELTS or TOEFL; there really is no preference. IELTS/TOEFL do not you points in the admissions decision. It just simply tells the adcom that you are proficient in the language.

Help:
Auburn Grad School: As a policy, we do not consider any applicant until we have reviewed all the documentation. Official GRE and TOEFL (for international applicants) scores and transcripts are required by the Graduate School and should be sent directly to them.....

Pls who can help on this? Do they mean they wont review my application at all unless i submit official TOEFL and School transcript.

I dey fear to put in lot of money for this and get a rejection.

Well, we must all take risks.

Typically, programs - especially competitive ones - do not evaluate (review) applications until they have all the required data points. As you know, your application will not only be weighed WRT the minimum standards for the program, but will also be compared to other candidates especially when considering whom to fund.

Can you tell me what exactly he was 'explaining' to me?
About me paying my dues?
Is there any rule/law/system that encourages one to have his first degree in Nigeria undecided

Please don't dabble into matters without first scrutinizing the root cause of the altercation.

I think that you should always try to get the best in everything, including undergrad education.

That said, a US undergrad program is very expensive and scholarships are very rare at that level.
If you can't fund it, or don't have a scholarship award then you probably shouldn't be sounding so entitled.

If you're really interested in undergrad studies, you'll have more luck at EducationUSA in the US embassy.

And this is why your question remains unanswered because most here paid the dues to Nigeria first....... eg long ASUU strikes, poor grading system, studying with no electricity, falling sick while writing exams, going to school during fuel scarcity, paying for project from your pocket while credit goes to the professor etc.

Exactly.

Hehe...been writing essays for the past 2 weeks. Paraphrasing and paraphrasing over and over. I now think the GRE is actually one of the more easier parts of an application, at least it's straightforward.

hummmmm why would you interpret the link in this way ?

if you intend to go with a Uni visa and make a switch to a CC as soon as you enter then any news about such topic should interest you as it might potentially affect you or anyone planning that pathway ....so you ensure you know what the rules or implications or situations are .....

instead of reading it and noting, you responded back with crase , smoke and die ...... i am puzzled

Perhaps, he believes he can curse his way out of Rex Tillerson's clampdown. The more amazing thing is that this person wants to go to "school" but cannot bear to read a news report and re-consider his plans in light of the new information.

thanks for the prompt response boss. I actually studied economics, hoping to apply for a masters in financial economics.
undergraduate CGPA is 3.03/5.

TBH, will be very tough getting in an MFE with 3.03/5.00. It will be a very heavy lift, you will have to blow your Quant out of the water.

What school are you looking at for the MFE?
