You can request for Emergency date just 60 days to you resumption and I hope you meet up before applying at all ?
Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 16 by Walspring: 10:51pm On Apr 27
To all those applying for emergency date and saying it was denied, I hope you guys meet up with the rules before applying?

Because you can only apply for emergency date 60 days before your class resumption or school resumption.

Please guys i need urgent help…..My resumption date is June 9 so i requested for an emergency interview date but i got a response yesterday that my request was denied.I thought i attached all the necessary documents which are I-20, Sevis fee, visa fee, ds-160.
I need help please as my resumption date is getting closer and I can’t seem to get a date.
This was the response i got from them:-

Lemme ask are you going for FALL 2022 or Summer 2022 because If you are going for FALL 2022, your resumption date can’t be June 9th.

Also if you got denied for emergency date it could still be because your Visa fee has once been used to cancel interview date before.

Since you can only cancel once on a visa fee you hard get emergency date with it unless you are lucky the person processing it over look it.

Please what's the process to get an expedited appointment?
Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 16 by Theflint1(m): 12:04am On Apr 28
Thanks chief, appreciate the robust response. I already applied for Abuja, got January, will apply for emergency there when it's within 60 days.
amojoawo:


Yes, pick the earliest date you can get and apply for emergency. But note that you shouldn’t be applying for EA until you are within 60 days to your resumption otherwise you may be denied (though there are some lucky ones). My own suggestion is to wait and just keep checking for an earlier date for regular appointment till you are within 60 days to resumption (e.g. May 28 and beyond). If Lagos doesn’t open up dates by then, then pick a date and apply for EA. Hopefully Lagos starts responding to EA by then as well because lately they have not. But you still have some time sha.

A lot of red flag in your application. You will need a strong application next time. You should apply to a decent school like may be BGSU in another state. Also, get some scholarships.

If I'm applying to BGSU, how do I get scholarship?

Also, are there any Universities in Texas you can recommend for scholarship?

Hello house, I cancelled my previous appointment and want to book anew but I understand if you cancel an appointment, you can't get an emergency date when you apply.

To book a new appointment with a new VISA payment, do I have to do so with a new profile or I can use my previous profile?

Xcence Guest House by Emeka Anyaoku Street, Area 11, Garki is great. #500 to the Embassy via bolt. Close to the popular Ojuelegba restaurant if you don't want hotel food.
From personal experience, there's light 24/7.

How much for the lodging here?

Here is my visa approved transcript

Program: Computer Science (Msc)
COA: 42k
Funding: Graduate assistantship
Deficit: 37k

GOD IS THE GREATEST

VO: I see you are going to pursue a masters program in Computer science at bleep university
Me: Yes, that’s correct
Vo: What do you do for a living
Me: I work as an inventory data analyst at bleep company where i develop performance metrics and establish ad-hoc reporting to enhance department efficiency.
Vo: Alright, Why this university ?
Me: I chose this university because it offers students the opportunity to engage and participate in capstone projects of the school which students can leverage as graduate experience. Also, during an email conversation with Dr Bleep, the Graduate Program director, i was informed bleep university offers graduate internship programs just within the two years course of studies, the school has a strong collaboration with the industry which i believe would help me harness the advanced skills and theoretical knowledge of what is taught in class for practical applications in real life scenarios.
Vo: what is your plan after completing your program?
Me: I’ll be coming back to Nigeria to seek reabsorption in my present organization as they have an understanding with me and has given me a 2 years study leave, so i plan on returning to them with the skills i have acquired through this course to help develop innovative and cutting edge solutions that address challenges we face in the company…
Vo: Cuts in, who is sponsoring you?
Me: I have a graduate assistantship and will be sponsored by Bleep business, owned by my elder brother.
Vo: what does he do?
Me: He is an established business man who is into large scale farming in the south western part of the country, he also owns some landed properties and apartments in Bleep state some of which he rents out for residential and commercial purposes.
Vo: types for long.. I will be approving your visa. Bla bla bla
Me: (With a big smile). Thank you very much.

Key Points to Note: The interview lasted for 3 mins
1. Please pray and pray and pray. Honestly I would say God favored me during this interview process, because the Vo which was a white female actually denied two applicants, and i was trying to escape her so I can get interviewed by the white male but as God would have it, we were shifted and i was called by the female VO and God did his work
2. Please prepare and study and speak to an object or something you can focus on while answering your questions during your practice, this really helped me cos i have little difficulties with staring at people in the eyes while talking. I stared at her throughout the whole interview
3. Please be honest and speak the truth with what correlates in your ds-160 form.
4. Now, i feel i have to share this last one with y’all cos I know someone might need it in advance. If you are going to be using your sponsor’s business account for getting your I-20, please have your school make this known on your I-20 , it was just Yesterday that it got dawned on me that my I-20 was showing family funds instead of company funds as sponsor on my I-20, whereas I already filled my sponsor’s business name on my ds-160. Thankfully to God, my school changed the “family funds” to “company funds” on my I-20 and even indicated my sponsor’ business name and his personal name which is my elder brother on the remarks section. Trust me, this really matters if you are going to be using your sponsor’s company statement of account. Everything as to match with your ds-160. Even thankfully for me, I wasn’t asked for my brother’s company statement of account.
5. Thanks to everyone who has posted their transcripts, I really took plenty cues from them cos honestly it helped me prepare well, Good-luck to everyone waiting for their interview. Just be confident and PRAYYYYYYY.

Cool

Visa Approved this morning.
Abuja Embassy.

Transcript later.


I'm grateful to God and this forum
Profile;
Abuja
Deficit $26k
Lawyer, working as In-house counsel with an IT company.
4 years working experience.
Masters of Business Administration (MBA)
Fall 2021

Greeted and passed my i20 and passport through the opening.


V.O: Have you interviewed with the US embassy before?

Me: No

I did biometrics thereafter.

V.O: I see you're going to the Eastern Illinois University for your Master of Business Administration.

Me: That’s correct.

V.O: Why this school?

Me: I chose EIU for 2 reasons.
Reason no 1, EIU's MBA programme offers students the opportunity to participate and engage in Capstone projects of the school which students can leverage as graduate experience.

Reason 2, during my Skype call with Dr. xxxxxxx, the xxxxxxxx of Graduate Business Studies, I was informed that EIU also offers the opportunity to enroll in Graduate Certificate Programs such as Business Analytics alongside the MBA programme without extending the duration of my MBA programme or my stay in the US.

I see this as an advantage to get a competitive edge in my career, and this informed my decision to pick EIU.


V:O: why did you decide to go for MBA?

Me: This course fits nicely into my immediate plan of taking up senior management role at my current company and my long-term plan of becoming a seasoned business and strategy consultant.

My long-term goal of being a business and strategy consultant was further reaffirmed by the Covid-19 global pandemic of 2020.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has shown that many essential businesses are more vulnerable more than others due to their lack of relevant management principles and their inability to adjust to changes brought about by unpredictable financial situations.

So, in addition with my legal experience, I expect that the knowledge garnered from the MBA programme will equip me with relevant skillset in the areas *VO cuts in* That’s fine.

V:O: what did you say your Company do again?
Me: Information Technology

VO: Who is paying for this?

Me: My Mum is my sponsor. She is a business woman, She owns two retail stores in Lagos and two in Oyo State, also she has access to funds from my late father's estate.


VO: Your visa is approved. *hands me the white paper*, keep your I-20..... * at this point, I was just nodding, I barely heard a word she said, next thing I heard was “to avoid being turned back at the port of entry”

No document was requested for except the ones I supplied (Passport, I-20, SEVIS Receipt)

Thank you all for the invaluable tips. God bless.

Cool
