Good morning guys
I am planning to do my PhD (petroleum engineering )i n the US. Please, can you tell me step by step procedure to follow in order to apply for a school with funding. Thanks

Step 1 Take GRE, you might want to consider taking TOEFL too
Step 2 Look for schs that match your profile (GPA, Test scores, etc) (you might have to review over 600 sch websites)
Step 3 Send emails to grad coord requesting for your chance of being considered for admission and funding. You could as well contact Prof of interest (POI)
Step 4 Throw in apps based on responses you get in Step 3 (Putting your eggs in different baskets)
Step 5 Watch your eggs hatch



But what do I know? Let’s wait for our seniors to throw light into your question

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SCHOOL FOR YOUR POSTGRADUATE STUDIES

When it comes to choice of school, some individuals consider this as an herculean task, and that is why it could be hard to answer the “Why this school?” question, when standing in front of that beast of a VO.

As usual, I will be brief while giving out my tips.

You are welcome to ask your questions as we proceed.

STEP 1
Search for the best set of schools in your field: There are numerous prestigious schools around the world, but each is known for the quality of students it produces (in a particular discipline or more).
Now, before choosing an institution that you want to invest your precious time and money into, you should crosscheck it to know if it really worth it. Go on the internet, and then research about its exploit in your field. A website such as https://www.usnews.com is a good tool.

Step 2
Check the cost: There is this saying, “Soup wey sweet, na money kill am.” Meaning, something good costs money. The next thing after listing out the schools that are in line with your goal is to check the tuition to see if you are capable of affording them. If you can’t, there is option of financial aid, especially if you have good academic qualifications. Contact financial aid immediately! Inquire!

STEP 3
Check and confirm you meet each of the school’s academic qualification: This is quite straightforward. Visit the school’s admission eligibility page to see if you meet its admission requirements. Don’t waste application fee!

STEP 4
Apply: You are wondering if it is that simple? Of course, yes, it is as simple as that. Go ahead and apply to that school of your interest, and then follow up with the undergraduate or graduate admission office via phone call or email.


I have taken out of my valuable time to write this short piece, in order to guide someone out there, and I hope you will find this useful.

I wish that somebody a good kind of luck.

OK, the issue I want to clarify is that I submitted my application with my unofficial Transcript evaluated by WES, but after submitting the application, it's showing incomplete and its notifying me that the official transcript from my school is missing... Please, how did u complete your application?
sorry for the late response.
I had to write several mails to the graduate coordinator starting my application status and was persistent in demanding for a review and he help figure it out. Please send me a DM with ur whatsapp no if that is okay by you so as to hasten communication

Hello guys.
Trump has expanded his immigration policy ban to Nigeria.

How does this affect people with interest in US schools?

It just means even with funding and admission that it is not guaranteed. It was hard before and I can only imagine how it will be nowadays.

For some of us here in the US it hurts especially having some money and no immigrant intent but not able to invite family over to the US because they just take the fees and refuse visas on temperament of some VO that's going to transfer debt to their kids.

The Supreme Court of the US recently passed a wealth test requirement for immigrants. Look up.

They pretend denying Oyedepo was fake news as if they don’t normally deny people visas with major investments and family in the US routinely. Just because Oyedepo is very popular they don’t want bad PR so idiots like Twoods would continue blaming Nigerians like they’re the ones that blew up the WTC.

For implications, keep your options open and expand them. If you’re good enough to get funding from the US you can get from countries in Europe and it would be easier, I hope, to migrate to the US from because truly this is the land of immigrants.

Keep your head up. Visa denial from the US would be jealousy at this point and nothing to sweat about.

What has Twoods done to you? This is the second time you're mentioning him.
You aren't the first person to school the US and surely you won't be the last.

Okay! Affordable test fixed the outstanding balance issue I had with my GRE account. I can now view my scores and was able to send to additional institutions as I wanted.

My concern now is Trump's travel ban on Nigerian immigrants. I thought the travel ban was a joke until I saw it on headlines.
Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by CptCharlesVane: 8:02pm On Feb 01
Neither is he the first and last and neither will YOU. I guess you never saw when he mentioned he and his arrangee wife were voting for Trump and in support of stopping more Nigerians from going to the US. Well, having Nigeria on this list is something he and his American wife had always wanted.

I have seen just about anything on Nairaland over the years and I ignore but that guy is on a whole level of hypocrisy and stupid. If he is somebody that you look up to then, sorry to say you need therapy.

You’re right, live and don’t mention me so that you can live as well.

Okay so most schools will focus more on your Quant score than the verbal. Your combined aggregate is not bad either. Here are some schools that comes to mind. You’ll have to check if they offer your course though and email the grad coordinator with your profile and ask if the dept has funding (grad assistantships) for incoming students:

University of Toledo
Cleveland State
University of Akron
Youngstown state ( I know someone who did actuarial science there)
Bowling Green state
Middle Tennessee state
East Tennessee state
Mississippi state
Georgia state
Austin Peay

My list is not exhaustive though. You can google the program name for list of universities that offer it. Trust me, it is a tedious but rewarding experience ; and the hardwork does pay off! All the best!

I am very grate for this vital Information, may God bless you
