psychologyshuby:
What is the course? Also only you know why you really want to study this course

The name of my course is Computer systems networking and telecommunications.

And here's how I intend on answering the question:

I've always wanted to know the relationship between computer system networks and how they function. So I decided to turn my ideas and interests into a career. And I made my personal research where I studied about computer systems networking. I want to study this course in order to acquire more knowledge, develop my skills and get a job with my degree once I return back to Nigeria.

Please lemme me know if my answer is okay enough, Thanks.

Are you sure I am safe with that?

More so, I just got the quoted answer below from the school's international office.


"Address Where You Will Stay in the U.S.  You cannot provide an answer of "not yet determined" even if you do not know the planned location of your initial stay upon arrival yet.  If possible, make a hotel reservation or other arrangement and put that street address (the U.S. Consulate may not accept a P.O. Box).  If not possible, the best you can do is to write "to be arranged with" in front of the name of the entity such as a school or employer that is your U.S. sponsor and its street address.  The U.S. Embassies have accepted this answer in the past as long as it is honest. Please note that upon arrival and any change address, you and each accompanying family member must file an AR-11 change of address form"

Hmmm..

I don't to have plans to write neither though, as SAT is not a requirement for the program I'm being enrolled for and Nigeria is on list of countries with English Requirement exemptions.

Im about starting my application.

But would appreciate more hints on the implications of not writing these exams when apply for the academic visa if admission is granted?

Writing the exam makes the VO to look like you that you're serious about your academics but since the pandemic as hit, the requirements has been relaxed but my advise still stands on write on for writing sake

Oga put your school address and stop overthinking this stuff. Or you can go with your school's advice. The visa officer most likely does not even care about that information moreover.

Business schools (MBA) can request for deposits as much as $3K. European business schools are the worst. Their admissions deposit can be as high as $10K. Really crazy

So many k-leg in this interview starting from the choice of school to why this course down to the sponsored....imagine someone collecting 4k sponsoring 24k COA...it means he will work for 6 months without touching his salary......

Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 16 by Tylerbaby: 8:47pm On May 04
Proposed VISA transcript. Kindly criticize.

Vo: Where are you going to the US

Me: To study for a Master's degree in Biotechnology at the UTHSC at Tyler

Vo: Why the US?

Me: A US university degree is very respected here in Nigeria. Therefore, having a Master's degree from the US will greatly increase my chances of securing my dream job back at here. Also, I got attracted to study in the US because of the scholarship opportunities schools in the country offer to students, especially graduate students like myself, thereby providing me the opportunity to afford a world class education.

Vo: How many schools did you apply to?

Me: As at the time of being admitted (I deferred my admission from 2019), I applied to 4 schools.

Vo: How many gave you admission?

Me: 2.

VO: Why this school?

Me: Aside being awarded a graduate research assistantship that comes with a full tuition waiver and monthly stipend, I'm fascinated with the research going on in the department, especially those on lung diseases and cancer, these researches align with my interest. Also, I'm very excited with the fact that the school are currently carrying out NIH funded researches on Covid-19 vaccines. Therefore, I believe this program with provide me with pertinent skills and an enabling environment to kick start a career as a Biomedical scientist.

VO: What will this program do for you?

Me: After my degree, I intend returning to Nigeria to pick up a role as a Biomedical research at the Nigerian Institute Of Medical Research. The minimum requirement for this position is a Master's degree. Therefore, this program would not only provide me with the pertinent skills to excel in this field, but also the requirements to qualify for the position.

Vo: Who's sponsoring you?

Me: I have a graduate assistantship that covers tuition and fees and montly stipends, the deficit will be covered by my Uncle.

VO: I'll be approving your VISA.

Why is your uncle sponsoring you/paying for your deficit?

Also, why do you want to study this course?

How did you get this assistantship and what will your duties be?

Prepare for such questions too...
Your responses are very okay.

Hi Guys,
My sister got admission for her M.sc in USA but the university ask her to send Financial Support Affidavit. must it be sign and stamped at the court or just normal typed letter?
She applied for student visa in 2017 and 2018 but was refused because she was going for a second (bsc) in similar course and the VO ask her to apply for M.sc instead of B.sc.
Then when she applied she wasn't married but now she's and her father will be sponsoring her hope it wont raise red flag since she's married
