I kept wondering why he is this bitter. He's so bitter and attacking everyone here in the name of addressing issues...Tueh!!! If I had met these sorts of posts here when I came in here, I wouldn't waste my time reading a page. Talking so rudely like everyone's at the mercy of his contribution. Any truth you want to speak just to spite others is no truth, you should deal with telling yourself the truth first.
And again, if the Americans you are with over there are this bitter, I doubt if you'll be able to deal with them. And some people keep praising you for the truth you speak, Kai!!! Things can only be better. You'll never see your real self if you keep listening to them. Ire o!!!
Hi everyone,
@Twoods, welcome back! It’s clear how people missed your very informative inputs on this thread.. However, I would like to pass some friendly reminders. They are mostly life lessons.
1. When you choose to make contributions, please learn to apply more empathy. Most of the time, your comments, advise, suggestions reeks of prejudice and preformed opinions. You assume all Nigerians are crooks. No, we aren’t. It might disgust you to live with the fact that you were originally a citizen of this great country.
2. When people get their visas and they claim it was God who gave them. I think it’ll be best you stay out of it. When you claim Americans or Germans or Chinese or Irish people don’t pray to be issued a visa you need to understand that they pray about other things. We don’t all have to have the same prayer requests do we? If they pray for good health and I pray for a successful visa outcome does it really matter? Live and let live.
3. Third, I discovered that Johnolukay raised a very important fact and you need to check it.Your ‘tone’. Honestly, watch it bro. There’s life beyond Nairaland Visa Thread that people constantly have been dealing with. Getting a visa isn’t a do or die affair. You lack an understanding of how communication works, you clearly do not understand emotional intelligence. You are notorious and acclaimed as someone who passes good information in a harsh way. I think you hate that you come from this country so much. To those applauding you for always coming out harsh, we should try to see beyond intent and suggest that he delivers more compassionately. I have been a memeber of this thread for more than 8 years now, good people have come, left a lasting mark, imparted lives without having to be rude or harsh. Honestly, I don’t find you to be a pleasant person because what you say is ultimately a reflection of who you are. Pass your message in the calmest, unassuming way possible. Character is everything.
Lastly, where is bracelum. I used to assume he is the new Twoods, but comparing your comments and delivery now. He’s a lesser evil. I said what I said, that’s my opinion. I’ll tell you the same thing I told him. This thread was awesome without you. We need kind people who talk like they have an understanding of how life works. Not humans who like to be perceived as angels. Good luck.

I don't have the luxury of time please. Oh,No! Not for this kind of argument. Argue with your "god".

Millions of students come to the US every year to study. For the vast majority of them, it is typically a smooth application process. the only reason you need "miracles" is because of the country you've created.

Answer me this riddle, why did that same "god" not show the same "miracle" to another person with the exact same profile as you? Is your "god" a respecter of persons? Did you make any special sacrifice?

This got me laughing you know... You're free to say this, it is a product of your thought. What I wrote earlier was a product of my experience. And when I said from start to finish, it was God, I mean it, basically miracles. You don't even want to know the kind of advisor I met, you don't want to know the kind of favor I had from registering for my exams, to application, everything. I have read a lot here, for some, like a horse passing through a needle eye, for me, it was a hitch- free journey.
So, when I said the process was a miracle, please, remember it's a product of my experience. Not the usual process you stated there.

I am a christian... but i am tired of reading this demonstrably false acknowledging of "God" anytime we obtain immigration benefits the rest of the world takes for granted. Yours is a profile i have seen all too often - well prepared, going for degrees that are in line with their previous degrees, good grades, and best of all - proof of full funding from a well respected US school. Except for rare cases, people with these profiles typically get their visas approved... without having to claim that it was all a miracle. You do others a disservice, rather than preparing hard like you've done, you perpetuate the Nigerian idea that all it takes is "miracles", even when presenting fraudulent documents at their visa interviews.

Amen. Thank you so much
Congratulations. Blessed are those who believe the dreamer! grin grin I'm very happy when I see people reverence God as the source of their breakthrough or achievement. His hand and time are upon us, and with a faith as little as mustard seed, miracle can happen. Also, there is no need to be sorry for posting your transcript late. I personally encouraged some students to wait until they pick the visa before posting their transcript. I pray this phase of your life leads you to somewhere great! smiley

I'm sorry my transcript came a bit late, I wanted to have my hands on my visa before posting. Please, forgive me.
I was a little agitated when I started reading the transcripts on this platform, especially the transcripts that were rejected late last year. I however kept reading, and again, Fairheart's post about seeing many visas approved encouraged me. The whole process, from start to getting the visa was a miracle only God could do. It took a while before I agreed to write GRE n TOEFL, after my masters degree, with what my eyes saw with researching in Nigeria, although I wanted a PhD, but Nigeria was a "NO" for me. I wasn't ready to read any serious "book" again too, so, I was just pursuing South Africa jeje for my PhD. My husband wouldn't agree with me on the SA prospect no matter how I talked about it. He just didn't like the country for anything.
After a while, I kept reasoning on what my friends had always told me about writing the standardized exams and applying to the US. I did and I was graced to talk to an advisor whose active research is a match to masters degree research. He agreed to supervise me and told me his research is a funded research. So I applied and was admitted and offered GA with stipends. Below was my conversation with the VO .
Me: Good morning
VO: Good morning, your Passport and i20 please.
Me: Okay, Here...

VO: Where are you going?
Me: I'm going to JSU for my doctorate degree in Chemistry.
VO: How did you get to know about JSU?
Me: I did an online search for schools with graduate research in Chemistry and then streamlined my search to schools with Natural Product Chemistry, and there came JSU and other schools I applied to.

VO: So, your focus will be Natural Product Chemistry
Me: Oh..yes

VO: Do you have a Professor to work with already?
Me: Yes

VO: His name?

VO: Did you apply to other schools?
Me: Yes, I named them

VO: I see you're fully funded
Me: Yes

VO: What will you do to maintain your scholarship status?

Me: I'll maintain an excellent performance in academics and research ( VO nods in affirmation)

VO: What have you been doing since you completed your Masters
Me: Been into research at my Supervisor's laboratory. I carry out experiments and analysis, write reports and help supervise the undergraduate students.

VO: Are you married? With children
Me: Married, Yes, with Children, No

VO: Will anyone be travelling with you?
Me: No ( at least, not now)

VO: I'll be approving your Visa, she gave me the white paper and told me to get my passport from the address indicated in 3 working days.
Me: Thank you.

Good morning good people. I'm a silent reader here. Thanks to everyone whose transcripts and timely information have helped. It was my first time ever at the embassy today and was issued my visa at the Lagos Consulate. I'll post my transcript soon.
