2. Is there a dress code for the visa interview Or one can dress as he/she please?

If you don't get an extension letter from your school to take to the embassy, why not defer your admission to the summer semester. The resumption should be around April and you can still go for your interview on the 26th of this month since it's will be within 120days to your resumption date.

Just send a message to your school to defer your admission and if they're fast enough, you should get an updated i-20 for the summer semester before Jan 26th.

Hello All,

Please I have a question. I want to sponsor for my sister to come and study in US, and I live here. Will that limit her chances of getting visa?

Finally, we're at part 16!

Part 15 was as long as 2020 grin

To all visa/scholarship hopefuls, may you share your testimony in this thread. I've seen the power of resilience and grit firsthand and as the wind blows softly on this cold USA morning, I'm here to tell you that it will be worth it. Victor Hugo once said, “Nothing else in the world…not all the armies…is so powerful as an idea whose time has come.” Take the right steps, ask the vital questions, be optimistic, be pragmatic, be diligent and your time will come. I pray you will enter your season in this thread and as you do, may you go on to do great things!

In the words of one NL mama, May the Force be with you!


PS: Shoutout to Mummy Lagosismyhome for sowing a seed into my ministry, God bless you richly once again Ma'am.

Anyone with Visa approved in the past week and passport not ready for pick up yet? I saw that @EfTee14 had the same issue for over 6 Business days and the passport isn't ready for pick up still... I had mine approved Jan 4th and still not ready as of today when I checked with DHL in Victoria Island.
Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 16 by Koskos95: 5:18pm On Jan 11
Good evening.
I gained admission for fall 2020,and I was denied visa at Lagos consulate on Nov 6, 2020. I then scheduled another appointment in hopes for a closer date to my date of resumption in January.
But, as at then April 05,was the only available date. I then defered my admission to fall 2021. So, sometime in December, I rescheduled from April 06,2021- February 05,2021. But, it just came to my notice, that I am meant to go to the embassy for a visa interview when it is 120 days to fall resumption..

My question is, is there any harm in taking my i-20 for fall 2021 to the embassy for my interview on February 05,2021,since it is more than 120 days to fall resumption .

You won't be attended to. It's already stated that you can only apply for a visa interview 120days to your resumption date. You should have deferred your admission to the summer semester which resumes around April instead of Fall. Tho most schools don't take in students for the summer semester

The only thing you can do is that you reschedule your appointment date and make it within 120days to your resumption date

Visa approved
Location: Lagos
4th attempt
1st attempt: Lagos no funding
2nd: Abuja no funding
3rd: Abuja half funding
4th: Lagos half funding
Program: MS in food science

I firstly want to give God all the glory and adoration for making today's interview a success. I know I can not thank him enough but I give him all the glory because it could only have been him

Secondly I thank God for blessing me with a wonderful fiance that never gave up on me even when I almost gave up on it after the 3rd time I told him I wasn't going for any interview again, he just told me let's give it one more trial and also for all the support and words of encouragement. I also have the best younger sister in the world.

Then Geewin, I messaged him from nairaland after he got his Visa approved, it has been great knowing him. He answered all my questions, helped me with appointment date, checked my transcript and also encouraged me even though he was busy making traveling preparations.

I celebrate fairheart also for helping me go through my transcript even with his tight schedules

Lastly I celebrate Tesla for the mock interviews and also linking me up with his friend Dami for mock interviews and also for the encouragement. And also everyone who helped me with mock interviews.

And to everyone who has posted transcripts in the past to encourage people going through hard times due to delay(s). May we all continue to have reasons to celebrate

You guys are the real mvps

It's a long transcrip but read till the end

VO: Good morning

Me: Good morning. Happy new year

VO: so why are you going to the US

Me: I am going for my masters degree in food science at North Carolina Agriculture and Technical State University and I will be working with Prof. *** on her research which is on Nutritional Genomics.

VO: why this school
Me: I chose NCAT because I am interested in prof. *** research as I earlier said the research is on Nutritional Genomics and after making my intents known to her about my interest in her research she offered me a position as a research assistant and the position came with a funding opportunity, here is the funding letter (she didn't tell me to pass it so I held on to it)
And also the school has a track on post harvest technology i.e the school has a post harvest technology research center and it is generally known that one of the major problems of food insecurity in Nigeria is post harvest losses of farm produce, i believe i will be able to take courses on post harvest technology among other courses and make use of the knowledge upon my return to Nigeria thereby helping to reduce the problem of food insecurity.
Lastly this degree will help me ( she cuts in)

VO: I can see you have funding of ... and deficit of .... who ll be paying for the deficit?

Me: my mother

VO: what does she do

Me: she distributes Nigerian Breweries products within and outside osun state

VO: where does she live

Me: osun state in ife

Vo: what is the name of her company

Me: adet distributing company

VO: adet?

Me: Yes, from our surname

VO: ok

VO: do you have anything to proof this

Me: no, the only thing I have is her bank statement

VO: ok

VO: what is the capacity of her company

Me: she has above 40 staffs, 10 majorand above 25 contract staffs

Vo: since when has she been doing the business

Me: over 10 years

Vo: what will this course do for you

Me: upon my return to Nigeria as I was saying earlier, this degree will equip me with knowledge and skills because the research I will be working on with prof. *** as I said has never been done in Nigeria before and when I return I would continue with the research because I have been promised a position at the department of food sci. Oau where I graduated a position as a research scientist by then the equipments required would have been ready has they have written a grant towards that( she kept nodding and I didn't look away)

VO: what did you study during your undergraduate

Me: I'm going for my masters degree in food science

Vo: I mean your undergraduate (pointing at my I-20)

Me: oh I studied food science at oau

VO: what year did you graduate

Me: I graduated in 2018

VO: what have you been doing since then

Me: after graduation, I went for the compulsory NYSC and finished late 2019, early 2020 I resumed at the department of food science oau as a research assistant

VO: you are working as a research assistant?

Me: I am volunteering as a research assistant due to my interest in research. I assist Dr. *** in preparation, writing and review of manuscripts and journal articles also in performing experiments on her research

VO: what is the research about?

Me: we worked on the bioactve compounds in pawpaw, we word on the determination of the abundance of bioactive compounds in pawpaw before the lockdown ( I stammered at first before I regained balance but I didn't take my eyes off as she kept nodding and typing)

VO: what were you doing during the lockdown, did you take professional courses or what

Me: since we were done with the experiments before the lockdown, I assisted in writing of articles and journals

VO: ok, what have you been doing since after lockdown

Me: like I said we have been writing manuscripts and journals and we haven't been able to resume since ASUU is still on strike and I have been making preparations for resumption

VO: so what will you do when you return?

Me: as I earlier said I will be resuming as a research scientist at OAU because I will be working on the experiment since it has never been done in Nigeria and by then the equipments would have been available

VO: so you have a job already

Me: yes

How many siblings do you have

Me: 4, 3 elder siblings who are married and working and a younger sibling who is in her 3rd year in oau

VO: what did you say

Me: I repeated same thing

VO: do you have any friend in the Us

Me: no, just the ones I have been in contact with

VO: I can see you have funding, how can you proof to me that you will be working as a research assistant ( I guess she asked that because of the way they stated the funding in my I-20, I had the same issue with the black VO in Abuja the last time)

Me: I have emails printed here that I got from her and from the international office ( Fortunately I printed the emails they sent to me when I told them I wasn't going to be able to resume for orientation and all) she passed it back then I passed her the funding letter

VO: then she said the words, i will be approving you visa. I collect the white slip it and just left crying, thanking God

It was when I got back to the hotel I realized she didn't circle the pick up location but it doesn't matter anyway.
