Thank you, so much, I sense so too. It could also be that I had just returned back to Nigeria barely 3 months before applying for a different class of non-immigrants visa. To them, I might appear like wanting to use the F1 for immigration purposes, which is against the law. Japa wey I no japa all these years, na now I go come japa? Who gets the privilege to be a Harvard alumnus and then dishes it for whatever reason in the world?
Anyways, I guess the ball is in my court to convince the VO of my true intent. @fairheart, please can I PM you for better clarification on how to go about my application this time? PS: I don't know how to PM @Shawarma, our First Lady, I asked for your input ma, please forget me not.
I have noted all the contributions and will sure put them into good use. God bless your darling hearts! ❤️
|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 15 by MyCaseIsDiffere(f): 10:44am On Jul 12|
Congratulations, I rejoice with you!
@LagosismyHome where is my own advice, Biko nu?

|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 15 by orimahspence: 10:58am On Jul 12|
Visa approved !! @ the 6th attempt
My Nairaland experience has been quite an eventful one because I was blessed, for no significant effort of mine, to meet certain people. It actually sounds a bit weird, to say that people I've never met in real life (except here) have made more impact in my adult life than some I know in real life. There are certain things I crave, and few people there are who have it and graciously give. The list is a bit long, but I'll mention just two of them here. It is important to particularly mention these two, because it is the thought of them that makes me feel I might be missing (and losing) somethings if I get too busy to check this thread These two and few others inspire me more than anyone else here, and that is not to say that I do not appreciate the input of others . I certainly do not agree with everything these three people write about, but none of them has ever failed in that peculiar area in which they inspire me. These are people who have a healthy and profound thought pattern. They all know what they want to say, and they know how to say it. Almost always, I'm awed by the advices and transcripts vets
Sharwama; I had my first mock interview with this Queen , I did terribly bad in the mock but not without lessons and counseling at the end, both of which influence my approval in huge measure.
Sharwama thinks too deeply, and lets her fingers take the depth of her mind deeper when she writes. You think you understand what she wrote, but you'll understand her better if you read again, slowly. She makes you laugh, while savouring some hard truths. She is the greatest, in my opinion, when it comes to satire. Sharwama will make you take pain with a smile on your face. How she thrusts a dagger through a person's chest with her words without failing to give onlookers a viewing pleasure, is a lesson I'm still struggling to grasp. Dear queen , may the force always be with you �
Oga took it from where the queen stopped , mock every 2days , correction upon corrections . @fairheart, Sincerely, English language obscures the awesomeness of some people, the best words only make a mockery of their virtues. This is why it is difficult to write words to properly convey the true feelings of gratitude in my heart for the blessing you have been to me
Suffice it to say that I holds nothing but reverence for you and all that you represent
Thank you for being such a huge blessing. Your love for God is enviable. For all the sunshine and laughter you bring, God bless you.
To you duo, May your kindness always be rewarded in thousands of folds. May your selflessness always return blessings to you in larger measures.
Lagosismyhome, time2win, Pedestals, This is a toast to all of you and others who give freely the richness of your minds. Every intelligent commentary is a product of mental work, including deep thinking, experience and past voracious reading. I learn daily from you all and I'm grateful. You may not understand how scarce and costly a robust thread like this is , until you visit some threads. Visit some threads and read your fellow youth--Nigerians, graduates. Read those threads and encounter the boldness of ignorance and its democratic spread among a large swathe of the youth space. You may return realising you're not entirely useless and foolish as you thought. You may realise that, by attracting brilliant associations, you may yet have substance in that big head of yours. A toast to my people here, young and old, rich and poor, foolish and wise--for in the end really, each group helps the other to find balance. And because we all switch from one group to the other at different times, the joke is on all of us!
Transcript anytime soon....

Visa approved at the Abuja Consulate.
After my first refusal 2months ago I decided to bounce back on the 9th of July.
That morning I woke up as early as 3am to do my final rehearsals and after that as at 8am I was at the embassy. I was kabashing and praying seriously.
After the necessary checking in it then got to the interview proper. I stood at the queue for a long time only to observe a young man who was dishing the rejection paper any how. I was just praying not to go to that window. But I was unfortunate that this man who has denied 4 persons in my presence was where I was directed for my interview.
At this point I took a deep breath and said if I perish I perish.
With full courage I was so bold to work up to him and the following conversation transpired.
Me: Good morning
Vo: Good morning, I love your attire, you look good
Me: I was so shocked and I bluntly altered thank you sir
Vo: i can see you are going to Pvamu, why are you going to the US
Me: Am going for a Masters in Engineering with concentration in Civil Engineering.
Vo: Have you been to the US before
Me: No sir, I have not had reasons to even travel out of Nigeria before.
Vo: how many schools did you apply aside from Pvamu?
Me: 3 more sir, and I mentioned the names of the others schools
Vo; who will be paying your bills
Me: My aunt will be taking care of that and also my mother will also add an additional assistance.
Vo: what's your father's name
Me: Mr Bleep
Vo; where does your aunt and mum stay
Me: my aunt stays in Bleep, as a matter of fact I stay with her and I shuttle to work from her home and my mum resides in yyy
Vo: where do the both of them work.
Me: I mentioned my aunt's and mum's work place immediately.
Vo; can I have their bank statements, I did that immediately and he flipped through it and said that he will keep this documents for further perusal and if found forged you will be banned from entering US, should I proceed.
Me: yes sir, with all pleasure you can go ahead and clarify the documents sir.
Vo: OK congratulations on your visa, but you will be placed on AP for sometime, should I still go ahead with checking this documents, I know you understand what it means to be banned
Me: this time I was firm in my response and said yes
He immediately handed the white paper to me and a yellow paper indicating that am place on Administrative processing and I left happily.
Just this morning my status has changed online from AP to ISSUED��
please my people for me I feel an interview at the embassy is not even by how you prepare or your answers, but it is all by GOD'S GRACE and nothing else. We must have to pray that God should favour us anytime we are appearing there.
If you had read well I wasn't even asked all those technical question they normally ask. It was just smooth and easy.
I give God all the glory

Visa approved 8am yesterday at Lagos embassy
Thank you so much everyone.....this is a great testimony for me....I'm overjoyed
I really appreciate everyone for encouraging and being there for me when i was denied last month at same lagos embassy.
Last month was my first time at the embassy and the VO was the black man, he didn't allow me talk at all, interview was rushed and he denied me.
School is APSU
Masters in Computer science, focus on Predictive analytics.
GTA offer covering tuition and stipends attached.
Deficit of around 7k.
Approved interview went...
VO was a white male in window 3 with firm face...
VO - pass your documents....(staring at computer for minutes)... You were here a week ago..
Me - No. I was here 2 weeks ago
VO - what has changed?
Me - last time i was not very confident to explain my intentions properly but now I am...i was smiling
VO - OK explain yourself
Me - I'm going to Apsu for my masters degree in computer science and quantitative methods, I will be concentrating on predictive analytics... The courses i will be taking are...VO cuts...
VO - why this school
Me - i chose it because of the predictive analytics concentration...the program has extensive courses that combines field studies and research analysis which will help me to be excellent when i return to my job after i finish my studies.. Also i have been able to build a faculty-student relationship with Prof Matt, my potential supervisor... VO kept listening to me and looking at me straight...
VO - what other schools did you apply to
Me - told him in full..
VO - did you get a scholarship
Me - yes. A GTA
VO - how many siblings do you have
Me - two
VO - what do they do
Me - i answered
VO - are you the first child
Me - yes
VO - Who is your sponsor?
Me - my maternal uncle
VO - why will he pay
Me - he supported me during my undergraduate degree...i was smiling
VO - what does he do
Me - he owns a financial consulting firm...
VO - any document to prove his sponsorship
Me - i gave him bank statement.. He checked and returned to me
VO - what will you be doing as a GA
Me - i will be assisting my prof in marking and grading courses and assignment...
VO - why did you choose this school ?
Me - repeated what i said before again
VO - how many children does your sponsor have
Me - 2
VO - how old are they
Me - not very sure but in their 30s
VO - oh they are grown adults ?
Me - yes
VO - he dropped my passport beside him. Your visa is approved...pick up in blah blah and gave me white paper
I didn't hear the rest oo.. I screamed thank you Jesus in the hall as I ran out.. And everyone said congratulations.
Thanks so much Time2win, Sharwama, Fairheart, deyemzy, allylic, Brown2green, Kashogi, yuscodguy, and others. I appreciate big sis Lagosismyhome and imperiouxx, all their old posts i read and i was encouraged.
Never give up. Delay is not permanent. Give it one more push.
You deserve it. Apply to good schools. Don't use agents. Be consistent with your information.
Write GRE, try to get funding at least. The sky is just the starting point. Love y'all.

Please a quick question to the house. A friend of mine filled his DS160 form and picked Lagos, after a previous rejection. But on the scheduling appointment page, he couldn't even find any date. So he tried Abuja as interview location, he found a date in July, picked it and submitted. Now he just realized he has two contradicting interview locations on his DS160 and his appointment slip.
Please, what should he do? A bit urgent. All gurus in the house, please your opinion is needed.

|Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 15 by nelem: 11:44am On Jul 12|
He needs to fill a new ds160 asap so as to match with the location of the appointment page.
