I learnt all US embassies in Nigeria have been closed due to the government shutdown in the US. Please how true is this?

Yeah bro! Even Morgan will gladly accept this applicant into its honors program. So, I recommend Morgan State University in Maryland. I will see my list and get you more schools for full-ride scholarship. It impress me when I see a student with excellent academic performance like this.

Call the US embassy in London to confirm. This is a contentious issue, as nobody can say exactly whether or not applying in a third country will be favourable. So, call them and get the whole information before you decide where to apply for this visa.

Goodluck!

You will be refused again. Better use your money for something else, or take your time and apply for the f1 Visa again.

Best.

Yes, if that is your passion and where you believe you can excell, go for it. But be ready to say at the embassy why you switch. But you should be okay.

1, Morgan State University. Check this school first. You'll want to start this school's flexible application immediately. No waste time as you'll likely be given admission. Then check the honors program website and submit your application for that--in case there's separate application. I once I applied there in 2008; it has been long now, so I am sure some things would have changed. I am away from home and will get you the other school later.

Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 14 by paulemi(m): 9:53am On Jan 11
Good morning guys. I had my interview today, was given the blue paper.

Lagos Embassy. 6:30am slot. One white male like that.

VO: Good morning. Pass me your passport and I20.
Me: Good morning. There you go. (passed docs)

VO: Which course do you want to study in the US?
Me: MS in mechanical engineering at the California State university Sacramento.....

VO: (cuts in) Why mechanical?
Me: (still speaking)..... I'll be concentrating in Manufacturing and Material Engineering.

VO: OK. Why manufacturing?
Me: Presently, the Nigerian manufacturing industry is faced with a lot of challenges, many of which affect the quality of products we put out and the efficiency of our production processes. From my experience in the field, I've been able to identify some of these challenges, and I see them as opportunities. Last year I co-founded and registered a digital startup, and our medium to long-term goal for the business is to advance solutions and technologies to help increase machine performance, reduce wastes and speed up transformation (stuttered here for a second) of industrial processes and automation in the Nigerian manufacturing industry. This master's course for me is a significant (stuttered here for a second again) step towards achieving that goal.

VO: ok. Who's paying for your program?
Me: My uncle is my sponsor.

VO: What does he do?
Me: He's the ceo of *****, a tech company here in Lagos.

VO: Have you traveled out of Nigeria before?
Me: No. I'm a very busy person and never really had any reason to travel, until now.

VO: Are you married?
Me: No

VO: Any kids?
Me: No.

VO: (eyes on the screen the entire time) I'm sorry, at this time, you do not qualify for... Yen yen yen... (hands the blue paper). This will explain more.
Me: Alright. Thank you. (collects blue paper and walks away)

Other info:
I have a B.eng in chemical engineering, with 6 months graduate internship experience and 1 year nysc experience ; all around manufacturing. I've been running a co-founded registered startup for over 5 months now, while preparing for grad school.

Also, my school's orientation is today, I tried getting an extension of resumption letter from the school, but the lady said they don't provide such, but that she'd make a note on my file for a make up orientation to be arranged when I arrived. I went with a printout of the email today, but was not asked about that.

Please I need a critical assessment of the above convo. What might be the possible cause of the denial. I'm considering planning towards fall, but I need to know what areas I can improve on before then, aside traveling for the aim of gaining travel experience though.

Guys, I need advice.

You are switching from chemical to mechanical. That's the issue I see here and I guess that's why the v.o refused you. You don't even have enough experience to explain why you are switching. May be you should apply to material science and engineering, it's a branch of Chemical Engineering and have that written on your i20 instead of mechanical engineering

Hi guys
You all remember aduku1, one of the guys who said he was approved and later refused with passport returned back to him.

Because i was unsure as to what might have negated the subsequent refusal, I scheduled another interview which i went for on the 2nd of January, 2019.

At the interview i was told that I submitted a fake document(bank Statement which was the only document I submitted) while i was insisting that the bank statement wasnt fake as it was that of my mother, the interviewer told that the banks confirmed same. and that i have been banned for life from entering the US for submitting a fake bank statement.

Because i was sure the bank statement aint fake, i and my mum went to the banks involved, i even wrote a protest letter to the banks on the issue. Upon investigation the banks stated it clearly that they were never contacted, one of the banks even showed me list of the persons who US embassy requested for their bank information and my name wasnt there.

Both banks then issued me a letter and another bank statement with current funds contained in them.


I have now sent a letter to the US embassy with documents supporting my claim. I am sure their decision of ban was done in error, but that is really inappropriate and bitter. I really do hope they look into my file and resolve same.

While i might not even be bothered about the issuance of the visa, i really want my name to be cleared of the allegation because it has really affected me and my reputation as a person and lawyer will be tanished by such, also for posterity sake.

At the moment i am really pained but i believe God is incharge.

I will give you guys more update as things upfold.

I have actually contacted some, while some were willing to take up, many said decision made by the US embassy cannot be appealed. I decided to take this first step then if i dont get a response... i would definitely engaged an immigration lawyer in the US.

I will surely follow this to a logical conclusion

Get a very good and sound immigration lawyer. This is a costly error on the part of the embassy or your bank as the case may be. Don’t be surprised if you win this case. They refuse and ban like say person offend them before. Nonsense and Buhari grin
