Travel / Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by geemailer2019: 1:41pm On Aug 21
seyifrenzy:


Thank you very much for the replies to my previous question. People who contributed have made my family more knowledgeable about the whole US Immigrant process. I say a grateful thank you to you all.


I wasnt the only one filed for. My sister was equally filed for in 2016.

However, she is now married with a-7 month old son.

On the contrary, she has not filled her DS-260 form or submitted any documents online to the NVC site.


Recently, her international passport expired and she has just paid for the renewal of her international passport to change her name to her husband's name. She has equally done her NIN in her husband's name.

Now that we understand the delay that comes with being married and having a child, she has some questions.

Her question is: does she still have the opportunity of sticking to being an F1 applicant? If yes, what are her chances? Should she do another passport and stick with her maiden name and apply as an F-1, and later on invited her husband and her son when she is in the US? She is worried about her young marriage and her fragile son.

She is the fearful type, and won't want to get into early problems with the US immigrations. I am the one encouraging her to be bold and fearless unfortunately I am not harmed with information to help her in this daredevil stunt.


Please help her. She is a sad, unemployed postgraduate in Nigeria

What can she do?

Whether she stays with her maiden name or uses her husband's name, it doesn't matter, her category has changed due to the marriage. She can get in trouble with immigration later on. It can be a reason to revoke her green card or even citizenship. See these links I posted earlier:

She risks losing her green card, even citizenship, depending:

Education / Re: Senate Passes Bill Abolishing HND/BSc Dichotomy by geemailer2019: 11:25pm On Jun 02
OlujobaSamuel:

You are right. However, some countries won't accept it. I think due to WES evaluation, only US currently accepts it. I once applied to a sch in Canada and I was told it's not acceptable.
I've tried to find out the status of the certificate and discovered that we are virtually the only country issuing it, others have done some modification, while we choose to get stuck in the mud.
Anyway, Na MSc be my own wahala for now, I don leave the 2 behind.

This is part of the problem. If you apply to the school without first evaluating your degree, some/many schools do not have internal credential evaluation departments so they will likely reject your degree. That's why there are accredited credential evaluation organizations like WES in the US and Canada. You evaluate your credentials first with them, then apply to the school with the evaluated credential. You'll be surprised the same college will accept it.

Rubbish,the is the kind of thing our rubber stamp senator will pass, how can you compare who bought ordinary form to get admission and someone who wrote jamb and score 240 above

both HND and BSc graduates are equivalent in the US and accepted for Master's degrees with no discrimination
Education / Re: Senate Passes Bill Abolishing HND/BSc Dichotomy by geemailer2019: 2:31pm On Jun 02
slyfoxxjoe:
But was there a reason behind the discrimination to begin with? Are HND holders on par with Bsc holders intellectually? Worth asking because most HND holders I know go on to enroll for Bsc degrees too. No foreign University will admit you for a masters program with a HND. So maybe there is a reason for it.

US colleges and universities accept HND graduates directly for MSc programs. World Education Services (WES) is one of the organizations who evaluate Nigerian degrees for advanced degrees in the US. If you have completed 120 credit hours at a college in Nigeria, your credential is evaluated as equivalent to a US degree and you're accepted directly into a Master's program.

Webmasters / Re: Web Programming Language Vs Content Management Systems by geemailer2019: 1:30pm On May 04
Moonlight111:
I am an amateur web designer and programmer for now , and i really don't understand why I should (kind of) waste long hard hours learning web programming languages like Php, Javascript , html and others when there are Content Management Systems all over the internet that would help me get around and make relatively similar websites with less stress and in a much quicker time .
Please i would appreciate if anyone who is more informed than i am , could please explain to me.

Content Management systems give you the basics for building websites and sometimes you need components or modules built by other programmers to achieve additional functionality. If you use these additional modules or components, how do you troubleshoot errors and maintain the websites you build when you do not understand programming? All you can do is build, but if those components built by others have issues or get abandoned, depending on the level of complexity of the website, then you're stuck. besides if you're building relatively easy websites, they can also be built using systems like wix and this is a lot of competition for you.
Education / Re: Am Having Issues With Wes by geemailer2019: 1:39am On Jun 27, 2020
smithval:
Good evening everyone.
Please, I have some issues with my Wes USA verification. My school sent my transcript to Wes via courier, UPS Precisely and gave me a tracking code. The package/transcript has been delivered to Wes 7 days ago as shown by ups but Wes is yet to acknowledge receipt of package and my profile still shows

STATUS :ON HOLD. WE ARE WAITING FOR YOUR DOCUMENTS.

Please my question is, how long does it take for Wes to acknowledge receipt of credentials?

It would usually take a few days to update your profile after they receive the package, but i would suggest reaching out to them to confirm what's causing the delay, bearing in mind we're facing unusual circumstances and there may be layoffs and limited work hours that could possibly delay service delivery from organizations.

OP Having a high intelligence quotient (IQ) doesn't mean you'll beat everyone at everything, especially if you don't have the same level of preparation as them. They beat you because they did something you didn't do or think about, get over it and get on to the next challenge. Some years from now, you probably will not remember your UME score (whatever it's called now), but you'll have a degree certificate and that's what you should be focused on from this moment.

LOL well i personally don't smoke, and i only drink socially (though haven't had alcohol in a while due to covid-19, to keep immunity up), and i watch soccer just once in a while... but the truth is, i don't have much personal time either, I spend as much time on my work and career as other people do on their social life.

rockyruks:
Someone should help me please. Wes sent message to unilag to verify the transcripts but till now unilag has not responded. How do i go about this please. Does anyone has a contact in unilag to assist me please. This is getting very frustrating. Just to send an email verifying results ehn!

Maybe Unilag is waiting for you to pay verification fees? I was in your shoes, though different schools. I was waited for months for my school to verify transcripts, only to realize that they dumped it aside, waiting for me to come pay verification fee. It seems most schools charge verification fees.

So if you can't get them on the phone, try go down there yourself or ask someone to go on your behalf. Its frustrating, but that's how a lot of Nigerian institutions are structured.

This is great advice and exactly the types of things I would like to get on the table in the beginning, so no one is wasting their time.

I sense that he is not terribly comfortable with "deep" conversation which may be the deal-breaker since I'm pretty forward and transparent.

I am going to give it " a bit" more time to see if anything changes because he is pretty amazing and we have great chemistry. On the other hand, I won't delay for long because I don't really have to. I was single before him and life is GOOD! I can go back to that if necessary.

Thanks!

you're welcome.

@dstseven
You may want to give this time to get to know him better. He probably knows what you want in a partner (i'm guessing since you're great with communication), do you know what he wants in a partner and his expectations for marriage? Can you ask him in a way that doesn't explicitly infer that you're trying to see if you fit in that picture? I am guessing he would want you to have some affinity with his kids as well because this isn't really just about him now. Many Nigerians also do have affinity to their cultures which means things like food, language and interest in things about Nigeria play a large role in developing a bond with a Nigerian man.

When we are "in person" he is super chatty and has such amazing energy but he does have an immigrant mentality which means he works A LOT.

I am not sure if he communicated this explicitly to you, but, working hard is something many Nigerians do in Nigeria as well

I've "heard" Nigerian men find American women too forward

I don't see a need for the label here, some Nigerian ladies can be forward as well so this isn't peculiar to anyone, really . I'd just find out what his expectations are for the woman he wants to get married to, understand his values and see if they match with yours. Talk about sensitive topics like divorce, gender roles, societal issues as well, see if you both share similar values.

Education / Re: What Can I Do To This United States Guy I Did Maths Assignment For by geemailer2019: 12:01pm On Feb 23, 2020
Students are not usually allowed to seek help outside their college professors for doing their homework, and you too are not supposed to do their homework for them. Hope you didn't literally write the assignment for them. Usually when people mention they need help with their homework you're not supposed to provide solutions for them, maybe just a guide or clarification, then refer them back to their professors

GP of 1.1? Can you tell more about why this is so? Not being able to understand what you read, or lots of distractions? Can you highlight on some of those distractions (if any)?

What is really the problem? You don't like the course? You don't want to be in college? What exactly?

You do really need counseling. Talk to your academic adviser as well.

In addition to your GPA, you need to understand the course you're studying to be able to make anything meaningful out of it in the future

Think about 10 years from now, do you think you can compete without a good working knowledge of your degree program, or one with a poor grade for that matter?
