Hi all,

I just thought to say this on the floor of the house. So people can learn while drafting their SOPs.

I have noticed that people try to paint Nigeria as a lesser country than Canada, by stating that Nigeria has a poor standard of living and education, the country is this and that, bla, bla, bla.

Please even though we all know the state of things in Nigeria, it is not wise to state it in your SOP. It is fine to paint Canada as the best place to study and all the good stuff as a reason for your choice, but leave it at that. We all know that Nigeria has issues and the VOs know it. But don't let it come from you.

Most times we wonder why some of us are denied because of "Home tie", but it might be more than having assets or a family back in Nigeria, your perception about your country matters a lot. Westerners love PATRIOTISM to the core!

If I were a VO, and you tell me bad things about your country in your SOP, I will deny you based on home tie, even though you have assets and family, because as far as I am concerned, why will you want to come back to a country that you think is poor in everything??

My advice is, when stating the reasons for choosing Canada just stop at raining down praises on Canada's economy and standard of education. NEVER say ill about Nigeria....

I agree, found its better to state the masters or course is going to help you better ur area of expertise in Nigeria on your return. Hinting at patriotism and an emotional tie

Except your app is as tights as @Team12's or you have the sponsorship package of @Chrisviral, you may need to wait that long.

In all, make ur mind up and focus ur energy on other things so waiting wont get to you.

Best of luck.

Re: Travelling To Canada Part 8 by hayqinsbFX: 10:58am On Jun 29, 2015
@team12 I agree with yuou to an extent on that.
But when you're going for a program that isn't an obvious progression from your previous studies then some bad words are allowed.
You hav to tell them why ure not satsfied after goiing through almost the same thing here in your country
Thiss would make the know that you're really pained about the state of the educational system and you solely wannnaa go abroad and develop yourself.

I stole a paragraph from a friend that got hs TrV wheree he says the incessant strikes is a major factor of wanting to school aabroad.
Do you think that's paaintng nigeia bad?

Yes, incessant strike n other education defect are good reasons for going to study abroad. This shouldn't affect ur coming back to work in Nigeria, should it? But when u say things like nothing works in Nig, etc, then that's telling d VO, u dont like ur country n wont be coming back. U get?
