Visa approved today at Walter Carrington. Appointment time was 8am

Vo: why did you choose this school?
Me: I chose Esu because it offers a combination of both microbial and Cellular Biology as a concentration, which is my primary area of interest in Biology ( vo cuts in)

Vo:Why this course?
Me:My ultimate career goal is to become a lecturer, so having acquired practical job experience in this field at my present place of work, I want to pursue a Masters degree in this course so as to afford me the needed knowledge and relevant research skills which would ensure I succeed as a lecturer

Vo: tell me something about Biology, Differentiate between bacteria and virus
Me: Still boning but doing Jurgen klopp celebration in my mind I responded thus. A virus is an organism that can only replicate when inside a host. They are classified as being obligate intracellular parasites,simply put, they can only reproduce whilst inside a host. But bacteria only need a suitable environment to thrive, when I say suitable I Mean conducive temperature, nutrient availability, ( vo cuts in)

icool, olu.ezekiel


NB : know your course and don't memorize your answers, that way even if you become tensed you can't forget, it's just going to come out different but still same message.
Master, I have fallen in love with your responses... kiss

For those coming to the Javelina Nation - Jerrypeacelinks, tosinooo, realdude88, cephas0009 and others i do not know of, you can reach me by quoting this post with your whatsapp number or email or you mail icoolnaija@gmail.com.

For any assistance you need, from the smallest to the biggest, we can find a way to make it work.



Landing at San Antonio airport (2hours 30mins) and Corpus Christi airport (1hour) to school are convenient but more expensive.

George Bush IAH (4hours to kingsville) - the most preferred and cheaper option for those landing here for school - is like 35minutes from Greyhound at 2121 Main street Houston and cost around $40 by Uber.
Then about $70 Greyhound Houston to Kingsville. This price fluctuates.
Plus an additional $15-$20 to get to 'your apartment' from your last stop at kingsville.

There are cheaper options to do this, one being the group >>TAMUK rides<< on facebook.
You can also schedule a pickup organised by the school, IAH to school, but you need to book this.

Please house, last week I posted my visa delay transcript where majority of us here didn't see any issues with my responses. Please, my question is, when asked, WHAT HAS CHANGED IN MY APPLICATION, how best do I approach that question?

What if nothing was wrong with all your answers and they only need another visa fee from you? cheesy

One thing I think you can do differently is relate your master's program in a better way to the current job you do.

Be ready to link masters Maths and Statistics to your undergraduate Computer science (why the swicth) and tell them what skills will be learnt from your masters program that will be of benefit to you in your bank job (since you mentioned that previously, it is good for home tie).
I guess you already did this in your SOP, please say it again in the interview, nothing was wrong from your transcript.

I will be expecting to see you in Tamuk smiley, don't worry yourself too much. The interview questions are harder than what it was for Fall 2017!

VO: so you work with UBA presently ?
Me: yes Ma, am the xyz of the department and my duties are xyz.

VO: so what do you need this Masters degree for ?
Me: Ma, if i don't upgrade my CV and profile as advice by the Organisation i work in presently, i will never be promoted and i won't be competitive either, i might even lose as the position i hold is competitive. More so, academic experience in the US is highly valued and well respected especially in Nigeria. I strongly believe that when I return to back, I will be more competitive and with a more marketable resume.

VO: Okay who's paying for this studies
VO: what does he do?
Me: Alhaji is the CEO of xyz, he imports Solar equipment and power inverters.
VO: Alhaji grin grin grin
Me: (I just knew the visa is mine) Yes Ma, we call him Alhaji at home because that is what my mum call him too.

Good one, please can you share details on the GRE registration by Mafit?

I have since two different sites claiming GRE by Mafit with different layouts but same contact info.

I think one is testportals. I will appreciate your quick reply. Time to start believing our citizens. grin

This is the link http://www.gregmattoeflnigeria.com

I used them, though I can see they did a redesign and it is stated on the site. I paid from port harcourt, if you can't risk it please visit their Lagos office.

They also said they are affiliated to testportal.

Hey guys. Which do you advise one writes first? TOEFL or GRE? How similar is TOEFL prep to GRE verbal prep?

You can write anyone first, what counts is being well prepared for it.

GRE Reading Comprehension and Sentence Completion requires 'GRE vocabulary' and needs more work, Toefl Reading and Listening are normal everyday use of English.

For me, Writing section for both tests was prepared for by learning grammar and sentence structure.

Download the GRE PowerPrep and Ets Toefl materials and see questions Very similar to the actual test.

@Icool please pardon my inquisitive mind, but is there any specific reason you didn't apply to UT Arlington? Since you applied to quite a number of schools in Texas.

No reasons, I just did not consider them. Most schools I considered were recommendations from friends and family who had a direct experience/knowledge about schooling there.

.... I say this because the Graduate coordinator requested for another recommendation letter after the initial committee review of my application because he said the original three didn't say much about my research skills( An euphemism for they are useless).
shocked So things like this happen!??

Overall, it is a well written piece.


I also did something different for my LORs

I used 2 professional from work (supervisors) and 1 academic - my then course adviser - from school (a doctor not a prof), these were the best people I could bank on and I didn't want the generic Nigerian professor LOR (even after several weeks of chasing them). I believe this added to my successes because they must have written glowing letters - I trust all 3 of them because I worked closely with them.
