Please how many days does one's document(s) stay at DHL collection office after the status of "you can now pick up your document(s)" has been sent to one's mail?

From the white paper I got from embassy, I saw 30 days but I got an SMS now that it has been returned to the embassy.

Good evening guys, first of all, I want to apologize to you all, I went for my visa interview on Tuesday but I've been out of both data and electricity since then, due to the heavy rainfall in my area. I should have dropped this sooner.

VO : She said something (but I couldn't hear her, my ears were blocked, I guess due to fear)
Me: I just passed my documents to her
VO: Where are you going to? (with one yeye tiny voice)
Me: I'm going to Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, for my Master's program in Physics.
VO: Why are you going to Creighton?
Me: ...because the department offers concentration on astro-particle physics which is a fusion of 3 diff areas of physics, cosmology, astronomy and particle physics. I want to be one of the starting members of this group in Nigeria (this last sentence ehn, I don't know why I said it, I was planning to say some other things that'd answer 'why the course and what will the course do for you'). I was like, I don Bleep up, I'm not even sure I said those well, I think I wasn't audible enough.
VO: What will your research be about?
Me: Can you please repeat that? (She did) and I said "Dark Matter".
VO: Dark matter? (making one funny gesture and I said to myself, Game over, I should have said it In a better way)
VO: (After checking through my i20) I can see you have an assistantship, did you write any standardized test?
Me: Yes, I did. I wrote GRE.
VO: score please
Me: 308
VO: (Typed for like 30 seconds)... I have approved your visa, you can take it up after 3 working days.
Me: I actually still don't know what I said, I stammered and was shaking, I packed my documents and left.

Venue : Lagos Consulate
Time: 7:45am

I think the major reason why I got scared was that I never knew the interview would be kind of Open like that, I thought it was a kindaf private thing that i'd even sit. As I entered into the room, I was like waawu and got really scared.

Thank you all for your contribution. Thank you sir Brown2green and thank you so so much madam Solihp, you attended to 100% of my questions and I really appreciate that.

Congrats in advance to everybody else.

bracelum:


There are standard procedures we always discuss here that help candidates and prevent unnecessary stories during their visa interviews. They include;

- Applying to at least three schools
- Taking standardized tests (GRE/GMAT and TOEFL/IELTS)
- Following a logical study approach (BS to MS to PhD, and not BS to AA or BS to BS)

If you fail to do any of these, you are just giving yourself an unnecessary headache - a headache that should have been clearly avoided.

Your visa can be approved but make sure you tell the VO that you applied to one school - don't lie!. I don't think telling the VO that you had financial problems is important. The VO is not asking you "why did you apply to one school?"

The question is "How many schools did you apply to?" And your response should be "One" with no further story that will complicate things for you.

Regarding the i20, it is normal for schools to fund you for 8 or 9 months. You shouldn't have issues with that.

THANKS!!!

solihp:


You do not have power over the duration of the cost estimated on your i20, some schools estimate 12months, others 9months, others 8 months, the 12months only means they estimated the cost of Summer semester too, so I don't think you have anything to worry about cause like it is stated, it is just an estimate. You can as well email the international office to make enquiries

About the school you applied to, be truthful, tell the VO you considered other schools but only applied to one, shikena.

Thank you so much for this. I really appreciate!!

Hi guys! My interview is less than a week and I just got to notice something on my i20. I got a full funding (full tuition plus monthly stipend) but my i20 shows 8 months (at that part of estimated average cost ) . It is stated in the funding letter that there'd be additional funding for teaching in the summer term so I think they didn't account for summer and I still think it should be 9 months and not 8 months. How can I take this with the VO??

I'd really appreciate your assistance guys!! And also, I applied to just a school because I couldn't pay app fee for others, had a financial issue that time. Should I come out straight to the VO on this? HAPPY SUNDAY

Guys, Good evening and Welldone. I would really like to reschedule my appointment initially slated for July. Shebi I wouldn't lose my previous date if I don't get another date even if I had started the process. And also, is there a way to know available dates?

Yes you can reschedule but only once, after that you'd have to pay another visa fee
Thank you

Thanks for your assistance so far guys. Is it ever possible for someone to reschedule to an earlier date? As in, if I got July as my initial date, can I reschedule to June if a day comes up open?

Have you started filling the DS160 form. The code is there, you'd see application ID, that is it

Good morning, start filling the DS160 form today, fill as much as you can, note the code of the form, because there are some info you might need on your i20 such as your US contact, you can fill other aspect and not submit the form just yet.

Create your visa appointment account and book your appointment, do not forget to submit the DS160 form when you have your i20 and at least 3 days before your interview.

NB: Act now, dates are filling up fast, as at yesterday, the earliest dates available were in July, as at this morning, few spaces opened up in May(2dates) and June(1date), so get to work.

All the best.

One thing, I tried applying for an appointment date, I realised I would need the ds - 160 confirmation number. I'm kind of stuck. What can I do?

Good morning guys. I would really appreciate any assistance here.

My i-20 was issued last week tuesday (still on its way) but I was told I can go ahead with the payment of sevis and visa appointment. Now that I don't have my i-20 yet with me, is it safe for me to go ahead with visa appointment, I have paid for both sevis and visa.

Also, can I go ahead to fill and submit the ds - 160 form?? Like how does the form really work? Can I fill now and submit but apply for visa interview in a week or two weeks time?

Also, like how does the visa interview date work? I mean, if I apply today, what could be the earliest day of interview?

I'd really appreciate your input.
Kind regards

This is good bro. I really need this, thanks. For the whatsapp group, I think that means we'd (our set, as per those that see this thread early and also joins the group early) be the only ones to get most of the info. If anybody else stumbles on this page some months now, he or she would be stranded at some point since the discussion here would have ended. My view tho.

Education / Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Ibruks(m): 2:41pm On Dec 17, 2018
amofum:
Good day fam. If you require a second pair of eyes for your SOP, I'm still available. However, for those who may be shy or overly scared of plagiarism, here's one for you. In academics, there is a certain way of writing and it never changes. Your SOP is not an opportunity to restate your CV. Instead your SOP should be more like a cover letter for your CV.
In terms of content, as much as possible, you should answer the following questions: Why have you chosen the program? Why have you chosen the school? What are your plans, short-term and long-term? Why should the school choose you (I.e., how do you fit in both in terms of research experience and current interests)? Outside of academics, who are you? Answering these questions should make you SOP stronger.
In terms of structure, I would advice you to start off with a very strong introduction that briefly answers all the questions. Here you would do yourself a lot of good by spending sometime on your research interests. Try to highlight areas of fit and specify interesting research questions. Also ensure that you state names of your POI here. It is also better to conclude this paragraph by outlining how this program would help you achieve your long-term goals. In my opinion "being a professor of management" does not sound better than "a career in teaching and research on topics such as leadership and employee motivation."
In the next paragraph, I would advice you to bring in your most relevant research experience. In this paragraph, you should try to "show don't tell". By this, I mean it is not enough to just tell the committeee that you have experience or skill, write with examples.
In the third paragraph, you should bring in your academic experience, especially if this is not your most recent research experience. Although there'll be that temptation to start listing courses, topics treated and thesis experience are more important. Your transcripts would carry the names of your courses, dwell more on topics covered. Also, I think it's important for you to walk the committee through your thesis experience. Process, research questions, methods, and findings are really important.
In your fourth paragraph, you should highlight your other reasons four joining the program. Here you must try as much as possible to be specific.
Fourth paragraph should contain something about yourself outside of academics. Here I would advice you to tell the committee what else you can add to the community.
Fifth paragraph should be that strong conclusion.

For the structure of each paragraph after the first, the first sentence should state the main idea. Every other sentence should provide explanations about that opening sentence. For instance, the second paragraph should start with something like "currently, I work as a research assistant at xnxx.com. In this role I have worked closes with Prof. HOC. Amongst my research contributions at xnxx.com, I have done xyz"

Finally, this is just my own opinion. I am neither a professor not a committee member, you should take this with a pinch of kilishi and a bottle of orijin.

If I remember any other thing ama update this post. Cheers to your adimishun.
Thank you so much for this. Can you also drop your mail?
NYSC / Re: Your NYSC Questions Answered by Ibruks(m): 11:39am On Nov 11, 2018
Hello guys, I'm currently camping at Borno Nysc camp in Katsina and I filled a form to redeploy to another state. Many people are saying we'd get to see the state of redeployment tomorrow. As I also heard that those that are not trying to redeploy will see their ppa tomorrow, I want to know if my ppa letter will come alongside the redeployment letter or I'd be the one to look for ppa.
Thanks
