special thanks to uncle frank and everyone here who has been encouraging on this journey.
received bvl yesterday after sending web form on friday
aip was september 18th.
got my gcms notes and discovered how thorough IRCC guys are. they checked my profile thoroughly. i am glad i didn’t have issues with having an EE profile. please note that every single web form you raise is added to your profile. keep everything honest, respectful and straightforward.
i am amongst those who kept saying aip would mean final approval when others were in doubt. i cannot help but be positive all the time. my classes are going on full swing and i may be amongst those to finish two semesters from the comfort of my home before traveling to round up my semester if need be. i have been very favored in my school and with my professors. countless doors have opened alongside my studies that being physically on campus may have limited. All things work together for good.
congratulations to all of us. we pray for favour for those expecting their own to come.

with the high refusal rates these days. i would advise your sponsor transfers the funds into your account because even those that used their fathers and husbands or brothers as sponsors have been rejected .
just be a bit cautious with the sponsorship thing

please i am not writing sop’s professionally or charging fees so kindly note that i will only respond when and if i am able to as i also have obligations to fulfill at my job, home and in school. I will NOT write sop for anyone but i can share a few tips and probably preview if time permits me. this is to discourage people from setting their hopes on another human being( me) who is prone to mistakes as well.
i have responded to a few people over the past couple of weeks despite my schedule but i wouldn’t want to be under any form of pressure from anyone i am rendering assistance to.
it will end in praise

your summary is very apt. i couldn’t have agreed less . i submitted few documents with my application . but the key elements for me were my finances which was solely in my accounts. no hubby or sponsor and i did a very very detailed sop with a table for my fees and all expenses. needless to say, it worked superbly. so many of my school mates have reached out to me on our facebook page who had full funding and didn’t bother writing sop and got denied.
you need to sell your self in your application .

i am really surprised at the high refusal rates these days. for some reason it almost seems like the refusals are more than the approvals.
it’s very important to order gcms notes then reapply immediately as this doesn’t make sense. address the mistakes from the visa officer in your application assessment as well. this is the type of case that can be easily won at judicial review

Hi IK, i hadn’t considered any form of migration until early this year as i intend to pursue a phd subsequently . Canada came as a top choice after i visited twice last year.That’s why i am in the EE pool and explained it in my sop as per the dual intent rules so the V.O could understand. thankfully it worked for me as i was tempted to delete my profile. my scores will hopefully fetch me an ita in upcoming draws.
however , i also know that education is one of the best pathways to migrate through. transitioning from my second masters into a PHD should also be easier within the same institution as against trying from overseas .

i had earlier responded that i am also in university of Ottawa and got my study permit approved whilst having an active express entry profile.
Just like you, i am 32 with a Masters from an Australian University and several years work experience.
if i may ask, what course in University of Ottawa is 17m? I opted for a 12 months short duration Masters which was 9m ish, showed proof of funds of only 12 m from both my personal accounts and my company accounts attaching my cac documents.
i applied 17th August and received approval on the 18th September. did my medical upfront, paid tuition fee of $8600 for fall semester, mailed nairobi and raised webform to attach it.As soon as i sent these, eligibility review started and i got aip to begin studies online.
you also need to let us know what you indicated in your sop as that is very important.
the international students office in University of Ottawa holds an emergency immigration session every thursday at 2;30 nigerian time . you should take advantage of it
let me know if you need any help.
by the way, i was offered a position in the faculty with a pay of $48 per hour after submitting some assignments and scoring high. i am studying from home online and will be earning enough to cover my costs of tuition.

it is well. you will scale through eventually . please have your brother transfer the funds to you instead of using his entire bank statement .
dear veterans ,
please accept my apologies on behalf of lucky mama. we are all prone to be out of order at some point in time or the other .
however , everyone here including the veterans are leaning daily. we are ultimately responsible for the decisions we make with regards our visa applications irrespective of what advice we receive . Personally i can testify that Frank has helped me a whole lot severally. i dare say my application was very uncomplicated as i was totally self funded and already travel exempt. but i sought his advice severally. i did not always agree with his advice ooooh. so i filtered what i needed to hear and applied what i had in my heart to do and it worked for me. i was not lazy and waiting to be spoon fed as most of us on this platform are. trust me i did my own share of work. when frank said 2 pages sop in my mind i said okay and did my 6 pages properly. you have to own your application but be humble enough to ask for help.
during the entire aip bruhaha, i kept quite because i was sure it was a great positive. i followed my heart and i have received a research assistant position from my professor . i am glad i did not defer as many people did during the aip
the veterans keep this platform going

goodevening house ,
i wish everyone a successful new week on this journey .
i have been getting lots of pms and i would like to drop this here for everyone.
Please OWN your study permit application process, sop , everything yourself because no one can sell you better than you can sell yourself. yes get tips and suggestions on what to do but ultimately do what you decide to do you are responsible for the outcome.
i had a lot of conflicting information and contrary advise but i stuck to my guns, paid my fees and started classes , i kept sending them web forms and emails with documents i knew i had uploaded. i sent my medical and it was updated the next day even though i had submitted all two weeks prior, before eligibility review started i sent course enrollment and tuition fees payment to add, next day my eligibility review started. then i sent ielts that i didn’t need to, i was sending them email two times a week monday and thursday. early hours of the morning with title: URGENT ATTENTION .
note that it may not work for everyone oooh. but my application was already 3 weeks and i wanted answers in time to resume fall.
please don’t let anyone discourage you at all. you can do it. i am looking forward to sharing my gcms notes with you all.
documents i submitted
Admission letter from University of Ottawa
personal and company bank statement since i run my own business
vac documents for my business
cute family photos of me hubby and baby
transcripts and certificates undergraduate
first masters degree transcript (australian uni)
passport with valid usa and canada visa
payment receipts for hospital and accomodation when i visited last year (had baby via emergency)
very long sop (6 pages with sub headings and sections for each point i wanted to address) use your discretion
i addressed clearly why i want to do a second masters in Canada and also why i have an active express entry profile because of the dual intent rules. i quotes it for them sef i think.
i appreciate all those who keep this thread going and whose words of wisdom helps us. God will surely come through for all those waiting. keep the faith alive
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Faithyyyyy: 7:37pm On Sep 20, 2020|
i think it’s almost the same across board. because it is very very important to show home ties no matter where you are applying from. i had to apply solo even in my EE profile i put non accompanying spouse because we are waiting for wes on his ends. in my study permit application it was still the same info that hubby and baby will be home ties alongside business
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Faithyyyyy: 11:22am On Sep 19, 2020|

For clarification purposes myEquals is a platform for NZ and AU Universities. The have a direct portal with wes that doesn't need second stage verification. You can google it for more info if its applicable to you.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 9 by Faithyyyyy: 5:31pm On Jul 09, 2020|
I think the general idea is to encourage everyone to follow through the process as best as they humanly can. Be it adding another language, rewriting IELTS exams, or an additional certification.
Whilst we are all happy that draws have resumed, it is wise to consider that the pool only has 22,300 candidates before the draw yesterday. The category of those with 471 and above is only about 4000 now after yesterday's draw. Between the last 3 draws only 200-300 more candidates were added over the past 2 weeks .
If the next draw is another 471-473 ish that category that has taken 4 months to accumulate will be cleared off and the scores will naturally drop down to 461-470 which can be cleared in 2 draws.
For what it's worth, india is still on semi lockdown and they take up majority of the spots. On an indian thread i just read, they are all having difficulty with their wes being sorted both from their universities and wes itself. America is not conducting ielts at the moment. So yes trump has everyone running for Canada but until October till end of the year, many wont even be able to enter the pool yet.
Whilst trying to do my ECA, i called wes severally as my school had dispatched transcript and i tracked it. After holding the line for like 45 minutes. I was told that they were piling all couriered applications in storage to begin working on them within a month ot two because of COVID-19. The lady said they were still working on applications submitted in March. This was mid june oooh.thankfully she advised me to use myEquals to share my transcript which i did and got my eca. Basically i wasted 12k on Courier from my school to wes which is still lying in a pile somewhere. online cost me like 4k only. So imagine the thousands of people waiting for ECA from wes that wes cannot attend to yet.
If anyone had told CEC candidates that scores will drop to 431 they would never have believed. CEC started at 467 oooh then plummeted down to 431. Imagine a 36 point drop. So why won't you believe same can happen for FSW? Last year's draw had 438 and there was no COVID-19 then.
I definitely see the scores dropping to 450 and slightly below sef. 6 draws of 3900 each will clear out the pool of stagnant fsw candidates that have been there since 4 months ago before more candidates come in at the end of the year
Let us be more optimistic and stop making people feel miserable. I look forward to refereeing to this post when those with 440 get ita.
IRCC must meet it's quota. We are here to help them do so. They should use us to meet it. ��� congratulations to us all in advance. It will work out for our good.

If you can call wes directly it will help guide you better. Wait times is like 45 mins sha. Last time i called after sending my documents i was told they aren't attending to couried documents at the moment as they have a huge backlog due to the pandemic. They asked me to call back after a month. Fortunately for me i was able to share my result via myEquals platform for foreign schools and got my assessment in two days. I just wasted money

So while i thought wes would take forever because of backlogs and paid for CES. Wes did my evaluation within 2 days and sent me the report.I am thinking i should just ask CES to do an academic evaluation instead.
Thanks a bunch

What was your experience with CES. Did you follow up with them to update your information once you sent your documents? Not many people seem to use them . Very little feedback on their services.
Kindly advise how to follow up with them.

I got into University of Ottawa and Mcmaster and Western waitlisted me . Pls NO MORE pm. Basically all you need to do is .
Establish correspondence with the department /faculty of your choice. Preferably program cordinators or admissions officers.
Make sure you ask questions so you are properly guided.
If you need to secure a supervisor beforehand check their areas of interest and ensure your own aligns.
Your sop will always be viewed by members of the graduate committee so sell yourself and interests well.
Have your own funding just in case.
Google best sop examples for graduate school.
There is also lots of information on this platform that will help.
