Good Morning House, My Interview is schedule for 2nd August and below is my transcript for Error corrections. Your comments will be very appreciated.

How did you get to know about St Cloud State University?
It was recommended to me by my Lecturer and Mentor (Prof. Malgwi) in the University
Why St Cloud State University
What attracted me to the institution is my interest in cyber security. I read about the profile of one of the professor in my field of interest named Professor Denis Guste who is a renounced Professor and is present research project is my research focus (Analysis of Cyber security and its economic effect).
Moreover, the professor has notified me on the advanced scientific computing facilities available to enhance data integration of what have learnt in the industry to the academic research environment. Also St Cloud University is known has one of the best in Technology in the whole of Minnesota.
Some of the courses includes: cyber security, system security, biometric security, facility security, database security and reliability, networking and advance data communication etc.
Why the Courses
Learning every day is one of the essential ingredients to greater achievement of one’s career goals. I believe the program will certainly help me with my career objectives ‘Spread Beyond Borders’. In addition, the course would equip me with relevant skills and modern techniques such as neural network and machine learning to the application of cyber security that I can apply to solve multifaceted/complex problems in my work place.
How did you get the Scholarship
Through the Statement of Purpose I wrote and the evaluation of my Credentials Couple with my GRE Result.
Tell me your study plan?
I will be doing a total credit of 33 credit unit in 24 months after which I will return to Nigeria to continue my job.
Tell me about cybersecurity at St Cloud State University
Some of the courses includes: cyber security, system security, biometric security, facility security, database security and reliability, networking and advance data communication etc.
Amongst those mentioned courses, which of them is of more interest to you?...and why?
Cyber security and System security. Because as a System and Network Engineer, it forms the major part of my job
What have you been doing ever since?
I have been working as a System and Network Engineer at New Horizon Computer Institute after my NYSC, responsible in setting up internet network for the company, troubleshooting and fixing issues with LAN(Local Area Network), repairing of faulty computers.
How will your certificate help your career?
At present am working at the ICT department of New Horizon as a Network Engineer, a Master’s degree at this time will equip me on the technical and business skills that i needed to create, plan and build a secure and scalable network. This degree also will elevate me in my place of work and make me a better cyber security professional and a good network architect. It will also give me room to apply for jobs in top IT companies in Nigeria.
What will you do after you graduate?
After my degree, I will return to Nigeria to take up a Lecturing position at the Army University, BIU has a Computer Analyst which my Mentor who is the present Vice Chancellor has encouraged me more on the openings in the University after my program in the United States. Also I will set up an IT firm where i can tutor Nigerians who have passion for cybersecurity.
Who's your sponsor:
My mum and my Uncle who is bent on supporting her both gave me their Statement of Account
What does she do?
She is a successful business woman who is major distributor of Dangote products and also my Uncle who is a Zonal Manager at Unilever Nig. plc..

What I have learnt is that you need to put our best foot forward. You should go straight to the point, the V. O doesn't really have time for long story. Prof Dennis research on......... is enough, then saying it is one of the best school in Minnesota is not a strong point because it is not compulsory you school in Minnesota
How many mentors do you have?, you can have more than one mentor but you should try and keep things simple.

Two) you are not there to lecture the V.o, you are there to impress the V. O. No need for '
Learning every day is one of the essential ingredients to greater achievement of one’s career goals. I believe the program will certainly help me with my career objectives ‘Spread Beyond Borders’. You have said a lot without really saying anything. The second part of the answer makes more sense

Three) consistency is key, you have listed 3 different places, where only you want to work. It pays to be specific. You said course will help you in your place of work, you also said it will help you apply for a job in top I. T companies and finally in the military university again. Choose one and go for it

Who's your sponsor:
My mum and my Uncle who is bent on supporting her both gave me their Statement of Account
What does she do?
She is a successful business woman who is major distributor of Dangote products and also my Uncle who is a Zonal Manager at Unilever Nig. plc..
I'm not sure how I feel about your responses, I don't even know where to begin, my chest is paining me grin
Okay let's do it this way.
Did your professor really recommend this school? What if your professor didn't, would you have known about the school any way? would you have applied without his recommendation, did you apply simply because your professor recommended it?
Is this the only school you applied to, did your professor recommend the other schools too?
I'm showing you something, I pray you see it grin
Why this school
I'm not comfortable with this professor stuff and I have been singing it. If you are a VO and over 20 persons on a daily basis tell you they picked a school because of a professor or his research interest, how will you feel? Won't you be bored?
Some VOs now cut you off the moment you mention professor.... That's not the goal, the goal is to make the VO listen with rapt attention by sharing outstanding information, the goal is to converse and IMPRESS the VO and walk away with a smile!
So find out why your school stands out amongst the rest, every school has a wow factor but some persons are lazy to do the work to find it. Your department/program has a wow factor as well. Find it please. I didn't say choosing a school because of a professor's research interest is bad ooo.
Just don't begin your response with professor kini, I beg you! In all, make sure you have at least THREE sound reasons for school choice.
Hey Fada!
You are not a serious somebody ooo, see how you want shoot yourself grin. There's so much conflict in your subsequent responses, infact your responses cancel each other like physics equations grin
Let me show you.
At present am working at the ICT department of New Horizon as a Network Engineer, a Master’s degree at this time will equip me on the technical and business skills that i needed to create, plan and build a secure and scalable network.
This degree also will elevate me in my place of work and make me a better cyber security professional and a good network architect.

Okay, we understand you intend to return to your company and be more productive, we appreciate that, we love you for that grin
It will also give me room to apply for jobs in top IT companies in Nigeria.
Suddenly, you feel you need this degree to apply for more jobs, that means you have no job satisfaction and you probably don't truly intend returning to your place of work after bagging this degree. You have lost your home tie, you have contradicted yourself it is finished! Do you even have a study leave or something?
Oya let me show the baba of them all grin
After my degree, I will return to Nigeria to take up a Lecturing position at the Army University, BIU has a Computer Analyst which my Mentor who is the present Vice Chancellor has encouraged me more on the openings in the University after my program in the United States. Also I will set up an IT firm where i can tutor Nigerians who have passion for cybersecurity.
If I was a VO, I will automatically deny you. You are a not a good liar grin
Please don't get me wrong, I am not insulting you, I am showing you how unconvincing and unsynergized your responses are. I mean do you see what I see?
Your post graduation plans are neither clear nor specific, they have to be!
Oya see another one:
My mum and my Uncle who is bent on supporting her both gave me their Statement of Account
What do you mean by he is "bent on"
I mean it could be interpreted in different ways.
Also, what do you mean by they both gave you their statement of account? To do what kwanu? Someone can give you SOA, I can give you my SOA but my money, nah, forget it! Do you get it now?
There are certain sentences you shouldn't make before a VO especially the ones that can make the VO think too many things like you are making me think now.
In fact to me, you are a potential immigrant and a threat to national security grin grin grin
Trump recently neutralised an Iranian drone, don't let the VO do that to you please grin
Your duty is to proof you are a genuine student who is passionate about personal growth and career advancement.
Meanwhile, your study plan is not complete, it is too short and lacks some vital information.
Ultimately, please work on the entire transcript and anticipate more questions.
I wish you well my friend, may the force be with you!

Good afternoon everyone. I've been following this thread for a while now and I really want to appreciate everyone for theiir contributions towards the purpose of this site. I have a question please

IS IT OKAY TO MENTION THE FACT THAT MY SCHOOL GAVE ME CHEMISTRY INSTEAD OF BIOLOGY THAT I APPLIED FOR DURING MY INTERVIEW? I have Chemistry on my admission letter instead of Biology

I want to know if I won't be complicating myself when I'm infront of the VO since I can change it back to biology when I resume school.

Thank you

you will be complicating yourself. if you have chemistry on your i20 and your background is biology, you will face lots of questions from the V.O. They tend to believe what is on the i20 as official and that's what they will use to interview you. please, ask your school to effect the change immediately if that's a mistake from them.

Depends on the program but for undergrad it shouldn't really matter. It not like Nigeria that you must start and finish how you got admission for a lot of programs .

In the US , many students change majors at least once and many switch several times. I won't say it a problem but try to link the two or stick with what you have on your admission if you dont want to over complicate

It’s risky.

It’s better you stick to the course on your I-20. Chemistry is a good course. But if you really want the VO to know that there’s a wrong course on your I-20, be ready to explain why you can’t change it here (please don’t mention finances) before going and things can get complicated from there.

Your best options are ;
Getting a new I20 before your interview,
Sticking to the course on your I20.

You’ll be saving yourself from unnecessary complications.

But if you tell the VO you have a wrong course, you’ll have to do a lot to impress the VO and after all that, the best he will do is to ask you to get an updated I20 and drop it with dhl before your visa can be approved. So why take the risk ?

I have two more posts incoming grin cheesy grin cheesy grin cheesy

Congratulations to you sis...
This is the first time I'm seeing someone sharing GSU experience here...

I have been targeting GSU for about 5 months now, The school is my best wish for PhD Medicinal Chemistry cause they have option for Bioinformatics...

I have written GRE 297 ( I plan to rewrite though towards sept) no TOEFL yet...(I'll write around Sept/Oct)
That's not even the issue... The help I need from you is to please give me a chance to ask questions as I want to start emailing the Grad cord.... Because only GSU sent me mail to tell me they saw my GRE score, I should get to know their programs and apply...
I've been restraining from sending an email to Grad Cord by the thought of not blowing it, and not making mistake or something

I don't want to guess my way around the application process and hoping it works ... I prefer to be mentored by someone who has gone down that road.... At least, the person has result to prove for the way S/he went about it.

I sent an in mail to you...

Please, help in guiding me start the journey of application through to GSU.

Thanks sis...

You ought to have written the Admission specialist of your school to tell them about the discrepancy. They will be in a better position to explain the change to you. I suggest you send an email to the unit if you haven't already done so.

Notify ur sch international office or the i20 office of the mistake at hand and they will likely send u a letter on letter head to address it if there's limited time or update and resend another i20 if there's still time. I had a similar issue but I didn't later use the letter(that was when I was going to d embassy)

Anyone in Johnson City TN who needs a roommate should please help a brother or perhaps welcome me. This is my first time of traveling out of the country.

Please

Good afternoon everyone. I've been following this thread for a while now and I really want to appreciate everyone for theiir contributions towards the purpose of this site. I have a question please

IS IT OKAY TO MENTION THE FACT THAT MY SCHOOL GAVE ME CHEMISTRY INSTEAD OF BIOLOGY THAT I APPLIED FOR DURING MY INTERVIEW? I have Chemistry on my admission letter instead of Biology

I want to know if I won't be complicating myself when I'm infront of the VO since I can change it back to biology when I resume school.

Thank you

Yes you will be complicating issues by presenting what is not on your i 20. I have similar issue with my own I 20 as well. I reached out to my school but I was advised to only speak on what is on the i 20 sent as the course i got admission for is new and yet to get accredited to be issuing I 20 till late August,2019.
So it is safer to present the course on your I 20 to the VO.
Best of luck!

I am sure you don't know me, but I have always followed your post since your Msc days, back before dem MsNas... You're a huge inspiration, and also one of the reasons why I did not give up on the study abroad thingy... Thank you so much!

Nice to hear this. No one should ever give up his aspiration.
