VISA APPROVED THIS MORNING 23RD DECEMBER.
VENUE: ABUJA EMBASSY.



MY TRANSCRIPT:

APPOINTMENT TIME IS 11AM BUT I GOT THERE BY 5:40AM. AT 7AM, THEY STARTED CHECKING US IN. MY FRIEND & I WERE THE 1ST TO ARRIVE AT THE EMBASSY BUT I WAS THE 7TH PERSON ON THE QUEUE WHILE SHE WAS THE 1ST PERSON.

I WAS INTERVIEWED BY THE BLACK GUY.

ME: I FINISHED FROM IMO STATE UNIVERSITY WITH A 2ND CLASS UPPER HONOURS IN 2016 AND IMMEDIATELY, I PROCEEDED TO THE NIGERIAN LAW SCHOOL AND FINISHED IN 2017 & WAS CALLED TO THE NIGERIAN BAR IN DECEMBER 2017.

V0: I CAN SEE YOU HAVE AN OUTSTANDING SCHOLARSHIP, HOW DID YOU GET IT?

ME: IT'S A MERIT BASED SCHOLARSHIP FROM THE COLLEGE OF LAW. I WAS AWARDED THE SCHOLARSHIP DUE TO MY ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE.

VO: TELL ME WHAT THIS DEGREE WOULD DO FOR YOU.

ME: AS A PRACTICING LAWYER, I HAVE DEVELOPED PASSIONATE INTEREST IN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TECHNOLOGY LAW. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE WORLD INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ORGANISATION (WIPO) ON LINKEDIN SINCE 2018 AND I HAVE COMPLETED ABOUT FIVE (5) CERTIFICATION COURSES WITH THE WORLD INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ORGANISATION ACADEMY (WIPO ACADEMY) TO GAIN BASIC KNOWLEDGE IN THIS AREA OF LAW. THIS DEGREE WILL CONTRIBUTE IMMENSELY TO MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT AS I LOOK FORWARD TO BUILDING A REPUTABLE CAREER IN THE FIELD OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TECHNOLOGY LAW UPON MY RETURN TO NIGERIA. ALSO, THE REASON WHY MY UNCLE IS SPONSORING ME IS THE FACT THAT HIS LAW FIRM "CMC ONUOHA & CO" LACK STRENGTH IN THIS AREA OF LAW & GIVEN THE FACT THAT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY & TECHNOLOGY LAW IS THE FASTEST GROWING AREA OF LAW IN NIGERIA TODAY, GAINING AN ADVANCED KNOWLEDGE IN THIS AREA OF LAW WOULD ENABLE ME CONTRIBUTE GREATLY TO THE GROWTH OF THE FIRM AND ALSO, ISSUE PROFESSIONAL ADVISE TO CLIENTS ON HOW TO PROTECT AND MANAGE THEIR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AS WELL AS DRAFTING IP COMMERCIALISATION & OPEN LICENSING AGREEMENTS.

ME: THANK YOU SIR.

MHEN, IMMEDIATELY, I STARTED SINGING "OBIM DERE JUU, CHUKWU AMARALA IHEOMA ONA EMERE, OBIM DERE JUU."

MY INTERVIEW WAS LESS THAN A MINUTE, NO DOCUMENT WAS ASKED & I SPOKE CONFIDENTLY.

I BELIEVE, IF YOU SPEAK CONFIDENTLY AND SAY WHAT'S ON YOUR DS-160, YOU'LL DEFINITELY GET IT.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, PRAY O! IN THE LAST FOUR DAYS, I'VE BEEN WAKING UP BY 4AM TO DO 1HR PRAISE & WORSHIP & TODAY, I GIVE ALL THE GLORY TO GOD FOR HE ANSWERED MY PRAYER.

I WISH ALL WHO ARE YET TO BE INTERVIEWED A RESOUNDING SUCCESS.

Hi, whats the email address you sent the email to, and what were the contents of your email?

ConsularAbuja@state.gov


Well, my case is somehow shaa. I was denied emergency request in October for failure to upload SEVIS fee and was subsequently denied in December for no reason.
So, I mailed them via consularAbuja@state.gov pleading with them to reconsider my emergency request that this is the second time my request is being denied and that my appointment was rescheduled by the Consulate Office, Lagos from December 11th to January 15th which was I paid another VISA fee to enable me get appointment before my program start date on 13th January, but it seems my hope of getting an appointment with the Embassy before my program start has been dashed again by the mail I received notifying me of the denial of my emergency request, that I plead with the Embassy to reconsider its decision and approve my emergency request.

After 4hrs of sending them the mail, I received a mail from them that my emergency request has been approved that I can login to reschedule an appointment.

That was all.

I got the email 4 times within the space of an hour. It really looks sus


Same here. They corrected the error on the subsequent mail.

Well, I called the embassy help desk & they said nothing can be done, that they received notification that the Lagos Consulate would be cancelling some appointments and it's unfortunate mine is among the cancelled appointments.

I told them that my School start date is January 13th and the officer said the embassy would take consideration of all the people whose appointments have been rescheduled, that if I'm not ok with the January 15th day, I can defer my program to Fall 2021.

Mhen, I just tire. Well, I've mailed my school to update them on my current situation.


I really don't know why some appointments should be cancelled. If there are many interviewee on that day, why then, did they release more slots for 4th & 11th 3days ago as seen on this thread?

I'm just tired.

My appointment with the Lagos Consulate has just been rescheduled from December 11th to January 15th.

Reason: Embassy will not be interviewing on December 11th.

Does the filling of DS-160 have a limit like the MRV fee?


I didn't save my DS-160 in a PDF format in my PC after Submitting it, now it's doing me like I made a mistake somewhere.

Is there any limit to the number of times one can fill the DS-160 & does filling multiple DS-160 have any consequences?

Thanks

So sorry about your denial...

As e de go so matter don de change, so like this once they ask me why I'm going to the school, the best bet is to start talking about the course of study and its impact in ur career of why you chose the course....

If possible why this school should not mean u talking about the admission process or scholarships cos I'm sure he can see that on ur i20.

We might not have the opportunity for another question like why this course so let's just take any opportunity and sell ourself.

I wish the rest of us goodluck..



Honestly, if I'm asked why this school, I would tell the VO how the school is good in my area of interest and how the program from the school would contribute greatly to my personal and career development before stating my scholarship and ranking.

The V.O. already knows the school ranking and he's seeing your scholarship on your I-20, so when he asks why this school, he really want to know how the school would contribute to your career growth. So in this line, I believe the best thing to do, is to start telling him how the school has gained notable recognition in your field of interest and how the school's style of teaching would contribute to your career growth upon your return to Nigeria.

My opinion shaa.

Hello guys, for someone going for an f1 visa interview without taking toefl exams but was still accepted by the school, Will there be a problem during the interview?

If the school does not require IELTS, then, there won't be an issue.
