Hi guys! Visa got approved this Monday at Lagos Embassy.

Being my first time, I got to the street that lead to the embassy very early (around 6:30am because my appointment was for 8am). I was bombarded by some mobile business centres guys who paraded me without giving me any breathing space. Not so long after the parade, I realised that some of my documents were missing. I had no choice than to engage one of those guys. They helped me print out all the missing documents at the rate of 1,000 naira (I wanted to cry though). After this I moved to the embassy entrance immediately. On getting to the police check point, I realised that mobile phones were not allowed at the venue. I look for a police officer to drop the phone with. She charged me a bill of 1,000 to help me keep the phone. I was so frustrated as that was the last card on me. At that point, I made a prayer to God that I must not go home with my passport as this stress and spending was too much. I was sweating profusely and later join the line at the embassy. Little did I know that I am going into another queuing. Anyways, after all the paparazzi, I was sent to a VO line. On getting to the line, I started observing people that are being interviewed by the VO. The VO was just denying people of visa. I was like, who is this wicked lady. At that point I was afraid and shaking. But I said to myself, I am going home with the white paper. I was tempted to change line, I discovered that other lines too were like the same. I just calm down at my line. After a lot of people were denied, I think one was approved, it got to my turn. I said, God favour me. Then the conversation started as follow;

VO: Good morning
Me: Good morning
VO: Your documents please.
Me: I gave her the documents (I20, Sevis Receipt and International Passport)
VO: Checking the documents and typing. After few seconds, you are going to illinois for doctorate degree (she was talking to herself while typing).
Me: I was looking at her.
VO: What is your highest degree of qualification
Me: BSc. First Class
VO: Really? But you are going for PhD. Okay you will be doing the masters along.
Me: I was just looking at her as she answered herself. I only nodded my head in agreement.
VO: She typed a little bit. How many schools did you applied to?
Me: Two schools, I named the schools
VO: Why have you decided to go for UIC?
Me: (Stammering) I listed three reasons as she was looking at me.
VO: What did you studied for BSc.?
Me: Chemical Engineering
VO: She looked at the I20. Okay you will be studying Chemical Engineering too.
VO: Have you traveled out before?
Me: No
VO: Why? (straight face)
Me: Because I have not had any reason to do that until now.
VO: She nodded her head
VO: What was your research area
Me: Kinetics and reaction engineering
VO: What will you be focusing on at UIC?
Me: Kinetics and reaction engineering
VO: What is Kinetics and reaction engineering? (straight face with full attention on me)
Me: (I was like, thank God) I answered her to the extent that she stopped me.
VO: What is your role at your place of work?
Me: I told her and stylishly relate it to process engineering, though they are related.
VO: Do you know anybody in USA?
Me: No
VO: Are you willing to pay for your bills?
Me: Yes. (I was like - who will say no?)
VO: Your Visa is approved. She gave me a white paper and circle my visa pick up point.
Every other things she said, I did not listen. I just wanted to leave the hall.
On leaving the hall, the police woman saw my face, among all other faces that were coming out from the visa office, she decided that she was not going to give me my 500 naira change. She latter calculated my transport fare for me and gave me 200 naira to return to Shomolu. Who am I to complain. At least I have my visa anyways. then I left the location.

The ONLY documents checked were;
1. I20
2. Sevis receipt
3. International Passport

Remark: I tried to see if I could get a science to the process, I can only say, the only thing is God's grace and favour. I prayed and prayed. Of course, I practiced with a lot of transcripts from here as given to me by my friend. I also spoke with other students that have passed through the process.

Thanks everybody. May God bless you.
Congrats bro. Chicago is a big city so youre gon enjoy it

Which college exactly? For college admission in Texas you are required to either submit your high school(Neco or Waec) or your Bsc transcript evaluation, you don't need to submit both. In my case I did my Bsc transcript evaluation with Spantran evaluation agency, they are quite reliable. My friend did his Neco evaluation with them and it went fine.

Nothing else. Visit www.fmjfee.com with the info you have to generate your payment coupon. It is a pdf form. You can either go to Econbank across Seme border in Benin republic to pay by yourself or have someone here in the US pay for you.

Hello everyone....I am new here, not so so new sha, been reading off and on for a month now and i always see a document like I20, please what's that? I intend applying for fall 2018 to a school in Maryland, a friend is there and he wants to help me process it same way his brother did his but he didn't mention any I20 oo, so i am confused, help a sister bikko.......thanks everyone!

Your i-20 is what you take to the embassy in place e of your Admission letter. It states your sponsor, the name of your school, address, person to contact when you arrive, your fees and living expenses, and so on.

You do not need to bother about it now until you have secured admission.

I wish you all the best in Fall

You already have a Bachelors degree, what would you give the VO as the reason why you're paying so much money and flying thousands of miles for an Associates degree? Right there you just exposed the fact that you're not a genuine student.

Took 3 months for me to receive an admission decision. I PMed you.
k199192:

same school Bro. why did your admission decision take that long.?

modified: I think the timing is tight though. But you can give it a shot if you think you can beat the time. Is your i20 ready? If yes use eshipglobal to send it down, it takes a about 5 days. Before then, ask the school to tell you your sevis number and the school code. those are the info you need to fill your ds160 form and to book for the visa interview. When you get those info, quickly apply for your visa and pay for your sevis.
