Enireqx20:The restrictions are for people that graduate and immediately start studying for another degree. When you get your f1, as long as you are studying, you can remain in the US for as long as you like. But they want to change it ; so after a degree, you have to apply for a visa again if you want another degree.

Thanks for your input, but I don't think you've answered my question yet
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by LagosismyHome(f): 3:14pm On Feb 12|
This rule or article doesnt address that topic...
The new guideline establishes a “maximum period of authorized stay" for students and requires students to gain new permission every time there is a transition in their plans
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Stevenssen(m): 3:40pm On Feb 12|
Enireqx20:That's a different thing altogether nah.
The rules won't affect it.

Don't you think the new ban on Nigeria affects the adjustment of status for F1 visas?
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by NwanyiOkpa(f): 4:08pm On Feb 12|
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Enireqx20(f): 4:09pm On Feb 12|
Do you think so? If yes, please state your reasons
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by casid: 4:15pm On Feb 12|
There are lots of confusing articles explaining the limitation. Most however states that since the ban is focused on immigration, they fall under the category of changing status.
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Vwendy: 4:43pm On Feb 12|
please I need it too
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by iwriterng(m): 5:57pm On Feb 12|
If you're in America already, you do NOT need a visa. The ban is on Immigrant VISA. You only need VISa to enter the country, you dont need a visa to stay in the country.

I had already explained why I chose the course above.
I just want to know the loop holes in the proposed transcript. Thank you
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Wretch32: 6:59pm On Feb 12|
iwriterng:True, however it remains unclear what the new rules mean for nigerians who wish to adjust status
This reasons amongst others is why I suggested people try Canada as an alternative as well since it's more friendly at this time
The current american administration is all out for us and we face a lot of uncertainties currently as any politically motivated policy change (very likely since we are in election season) could have adverse effects (politicians will do anything to garner votes from their supporters)
But lest I say more and get insulted again and misconstrued I will say no more from this point.
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Stevenssen(m): 7:04pm On Feb 12|
Wretch32:Canada itself isn't easy now. Have you read the Canada thread lately? I have been following that thread since January last year and still following it now.
We see like one visa approval per month there (and most of them are people with travel histories) compared to several per week we used to witness early last year, and CIC would normally hold your application for months before rejecting you.
I wouldn't suggest Canada as a good alternative at the moment.

Thank you for your response. I'm thinking of the animal science course. In my school, we did the same courses for all Agric sciences students including my course (Agric extension and economics) and animal science plus agronomy students.
We split when we reached the final year. My question is, is it possible to get funding for animal science despite not graduating in the department but taking major animal science courses when doing undergraduate. I await your response please.
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Wretch32: 9:29pm On Feb 12|
You have missed the point if you think I am talking about getting a visa
What is your plan for wanting to move in the first place ?
Visa is just one part and the most unimportant for me if the purpose for beginning the journey is defeated or under threat what is the solution?
It's just an advice, prioritize what provides an easier path to achieve that which you desire
Especially if you're going to be paying huge fees without scholarships
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Stevenssen(m): 10:01pm On Feb 12|
Wretch32:I understand where you are coming from but you have to get the visa first.
The only thing I'm trying to correct is the fact that you keep mentioning Canada. Yes, it's so much easier to stay behind there after studies but again, you have to get the visa first.

I am thinking of applying for MIT deep learning bootcamp in USA, do i have any chances of getting VISA?
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by NwanyiOkpa(f): 11:35pm On Feb 12|
There is no chance if you don't get admitted.
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by NwanyiOkpa(f): 11:38pm On Feb 12|
People keep saying "Canada"
Out of about 20 that applied for student visa on that canadian thread, I cant count up to 3 that got approved.

NwanyiOkpa:there rate of admission is pretty high, and i can write some code so i am confident they will admit me
I am just wondering if l'll get a visa for 3 months
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by NwanyiOkpa(f): 11:42pm On Feb 12|
Well, I have never read about the bootcamp before. Give it a shot!
If you get a visa, you will be happy. If you don't, you will be wise
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Paragontek: 12:20am On Feb 13|
Please, someone should advise me on what to do.
I have been trying to apply for my visa, by filling my ds160. But I am having issues with the website. I have changed browsers, explorer, Mozilla, Chrome and even Edge... Yet, the application page keep giving me an error page after choosing my interview centre and clicking on the application button.
Later, making use of Edge browser, I was able to get to the first page of the application form, but when I clicked to go to the second page, I was getting error messages.
Please, how do I handle this? What could really be the cause?

So Twoods has finally been exposed on here?! Anybody that has the picture of the orobo he married please email me I have a gift for you The greatest noisemakers in this America are the ones that did immigration marriage. Let him bring evidence of how he got his status and I'll bring mine out too. Until then you guys should ignore him. Empty barrel lasan lasan.
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Wretch32: 2:48am On Feb 13|
My advice is not for people currently in the United states, it's for people still pondering the next step.
Im not criticizing anyone or their decisions neither am I predicting the future, I'm talking of the present
There is an anti-immigrant populist movement that is so strong that the odds are not as easy anymore (not that it was ever easy but it's just that rules are changing anyhow and suddenly and mostly politically motivated so for people who haven't even come in you have no idea what its gonna be like at any time, so I only advice consider Canada because they are the ones saying bring your educated and your skilled and the ones willing to have an education so the path is clearer than a country where the message is quite the opposite)
I'm not writing off coming to america, afterall na here we dey na and we never run, however just right now at this time it's tough to adjust status legally (which isn't a crime, but populists are blaming immigrants for every bad vices. Crimes, taking american jobs, name it )
So to me it's very infuriating when you have to compete harder than citizens to get anything, so you begin to question your decision making if it was right or not
Amidst the danger that you know who can change anything at any point in time.
The truth is we cannot know the answer (if the decision was right or not) to that until the end considering that even coming to America itself is not easy (for those using transcripts of here and Canada who takes months to process yet we are comparing weekly approvals even though one gives every day and another every other 3 to 4 months, but lest I digress) coming to america isn't easy, going to canada isn't easy
But based of purely on adjustment of status
The laws of both countries differ in their support for or against it.
Whichever path you choose if successful, promises great rewards in the end
Choose wisely....(for all we know things could turn around here and Canada decides to shut up shop). Make an informed decision is all I'm clamoring for, I share what I share out of love
It's better to know what you're getting into and prepare than jumping head straight and learning what it takes when you're two feet in...
I'm only saying, look before you leap
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Wretch32: 2:49am On Feb 13|
It's always good to show respect to everyone, regardless of who they are, even in a faceless forum, anybody can be of help to you one day
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by sirhamilton(m): 3:31am On Feb 13|
Violating the terms of a non immigrant visa makes you go out of status, so I think you need a visa to stay in a country legally. Unless you adjust your immigration status or leave the US as is stipulated by the terms of your visa... But What do I know?
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by segunbolawole: 3:35am On Feb 13|
There's even higher tendency of getting funded in Animal Science than Agric Eco., but regardless, I've come to understand that funding is competitive, so getting a good GRE score will do a lot of favour. Then search schools that do a lot of research in Animal Science. If you did enough Animal Science courses in ur first degree, at least 24 Credit Units in total, u most Def will be admitted.

V.O: How many schools did you apply to?
Me: I applied to 3 schools
V.O: Name them
Me: ECPI University in the U.S, then Berlin Institute of technology and Freiburg University all located in Germany.
V.O: How many admitted you?
Me: The first I heard from was ECPI, I'm yet to hear from Freiburg University, and I haven't finalized my application with Berlin Institute of technology. So practically it's only ECPI University that admitted me.
You applied to 3 schools, 2 of which are in Germany, one incompleted application and the other no admission decision reached yet. How do you address that in front of the VO? (US Embassy).
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Stevenssen(m): 4:44am On Feb 13|
NwanyiOkpa:Exactly. If their visa was easier like early last year, it would have have been very recommendable.
Anyways, I think much more Nigerians apply to Canada these days than the USA and that's another reason why it's so difficult to get approval at the moment.
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by hammed71(m): 6:39am On Feb 13|
we go still enter this USA legally las las
|Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Chimaobieustace: 6:42am On Feb 13|
If the V.O demands for more explanations on why I didn't complete my application for Berlin Institute of technology, I'd tell that I basically decided to go on with ECPI when I was admitted. That of me not getting an admission decision yet from Freiburg isn't really in my hands.
