So i had my interview at the Abuja Embassy Yesterday, Didn't happen the way i wanted but here's my transcript. Its the second time i'd be denied. The first was in July 2016 while the second time was yesterday. I'm in my finals studying computer science in one of the private universities in Nigeria.

VO- Good morning how are you?
Me- Morning, I'm a bit nervous but i'm fine.

VO- Smiled, Its OK. What High School Did You Go?
Me- I figured the one i filled in my DS-160 was different from the previous one, So i explained i wrote WAEC in one school and NECO in another.

Vo- What university do you go?
Me- ***************

VO- Have you ever travelled out of the country?
Me: Yes.

VO- Where?
ME: South Africa(2013) and Dubai(2014) with my family, Seychelles(JULY 2017) alone.

VO- What were you doing in Seychelles Alone?
Me- I was seeing the beaches and island hopping since it was a week after my birthday.

VO- What does your father do?
ME- I stuttered, He owns a construction and general consulting business and i work for him whenever i have the chance.

VO- Is he here today?
Me- No.

VO- How many children does your father have?
Me- 4( 2 boys and 2 girls) My brother schools in the UK and my Sister got married in June.

VO- I'm sorry but i'll have to agree to my colleagues earlier decision, You can try again when you have stronger TIES.
Me- Thank You.

I was really pained for a few minutes but the fact that i actually wanted to go flex made me get over it. No question was asked about my course or anything. Sometimes i wish they could use a Polygraph at the interview. I thought my school was a good tie cos i don't understand why i'd abandon something i've been doing for the past 3 years to abscond. I'm scheduled to graduate next year. I'm considering the UK/ Schengen but i actually don't want to go to the UK right now because i might have to go there for my masters.

Thanks to everyone that has contributed to this Trend.
God bless you.

Since you have the fund for US, why not visit UK to strengthen your ties.

My opinion.

Understood but like I said. I'd still end up in the UK someday, so I'm thinking about visiting France and other bordering countries.

Normally they don't usually ask for document but things may change so take as much document as you want but don't think your document is what the V.O's are after. Out of 50 applicant they check maybe 2-3 applicant's document.

Of course yes. Even one month. It all depends though. You know sometimes this visa thing is psychological. That's why you have to prepare psychologically too, keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best. Because the CO's decision is final.

Sorry man. Sorry about that. The truth of the matter is the current US President wants to control the influx of foreign tourists in the States especially from the third world countries like Nigeria, Ghana, and so on. That is why there are lots of tourist visa denials.

If in doubt, just apply for an F-1 visa and see if you will not be issued a visa with this profile of yours.
