Go and write the exam first. It's easy to make mouth

You are very correct.
@Cassidyice, your first step to being admitted is to evaluate your transcript with WES. When that is done, you have no more headache to worry about. You are as the same as the Nigerian BSC only that you have to look for schools that accept WES which are the majority

The truth that people dont want to hear will be what they will come back to settle for... Thanks to Sheke01. No one is blaming Europe for temporarily banning Nigerians from travelling to Europe. Unfortunately, America has given a red danger(Travel not) alert about Nigeria due to the rising cases of Corona virus. They actually dont believe the Numbers coming from Nigeria

You need a US bank account and SSN
|Investment / Re: Us Stocks Pick Alert by Predstan: 2:58pm On Jul 21|
I'm an international student and I use Robinhood... all you need really is a SSN
|Travel / Re: My France Picture Gallery by Predstan: 2:52pm On Jul 21|
Ranking of schools is one big thing for me and you checked that list. If it's not ivy League, it wont be compared to what you have. I think you made the right decision. You can do your PostDoc in the US(very easy route). I wish you all the best as a scholar.
|Travel / Re: My France Picture Gallery by Predstan: 8:07pm On Jul 19|
Congratulations... on the other hand, Can you please tell me why you prefer the PhD in france to Hongkong and the USA.

So do you still think people should go ahead and pay Sevis fee or are you still thinking the expiry of unallocated SEVIS will be extended?
|Travel / Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Predstan: 7:55pm On Jul 19|
PriboD:I'm certain your friend is trying to defraud you if hes studying in the USA. But if hes not, then he doesnt have correct information about the SSN. One of the requirements of the SSN is to be a lawful resident which a student visa doesnt automatically qualify you for, but an address, a job and an employer in the US. You must be able to show that you reside in the USA. Your Visa, i-94(arrival date into the USA) and your address are not just necessary but compulsory in order to apply for SSN. If you can, please defer your admissions until the spring semester. Talk to your advisor, fall semester is here, hes likely not going to have a GA for Fall semester, you can vulunteer to work with him on research( payment later) if possible. You may also do some research with him/her as a volunteer(at your time) for free

*Will most likely be* is not from experience but just assumptions. I have no answers to that. the same highbrow areas are not comparable to the average brow areas in the least states like ohio. You wont want to compare atlanta to Ikoyi except with maybe the traffic.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 4:20am On Jul 11|
7 months only
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:45am On Jul 11|
2m in lekki, lekki is not comparable to where I live in but Ikoyi. I dont live in a self contained but a one bed house which will cost a whole lot more in Ikoyi... You need to start looking for houses in Ikoyi to understand what I'm saying... i pay about 35dollar monthly as electricity. My apartment comes with unlimited wifi, and water is paid for by the apartment. Please understand me.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:41am On Jul 11|
sharpman1:Yeah true, but will pay over 30percent in states like New York. 24percent federal, 8.8 states.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:40am On Jul 11|
Lol... you must be slow. Where do you live in bro?? I have toured houses in Ikoyi, lekki and the almighty Banana Island. These are are places that's comparable to where I'm saying.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:33am On Jul 11|
Lol... I live in Tennessee and out of the Capital. I pay 600 monthly for a one bed apartment. This is not a house or a condo but an apartment. If you think this is just too small to be true then I can show you a 3 bed house that cost 750 monthly in Franklin state of tennessee.
If an apartment cost 900 in chicago. Check same house in Washington county in the same state of Illinois.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:17am On Jul 11|
Lol. You must be used to the low eyebrow areas. I live in a one bed house with sitting room, kitchen and my private big Bathroom. Before I left Nigeria, I work on the island and earn a merger of 300k naira. I live at ojodu Berger and I decided to rent a house on the island instead. It cost a whole lot more than you can think of. A self contained house was close to 1.5million per year(in the most ridiculous places on the island. In Ikoyi, you can only find a service apartment which cost between 150k to 250k per month(yes per month) . A one bed house cost up to 2million in lekki and 5million in ikoyi. I have not mentioned banana island yet.
These are areas that can be compared to where I currently live. If you have not lived every of this world, you wont know anything about it.
So a 1500 dollar house monthly will cost over 15million naira in Nigeria. 1500 not my 600dollar ooo.
The 7million was including cost of having 24 hours Light, security, unlimited wifi, trash and electricity.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:07am On Jul 11|
If you earn a certain amount. You can pay up to 40 percent as tax
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 3:03am On Jul 11|
That's not true. A house of 1500 dollars in a Month will cost you over 15million naira per year in Nigeria. Please compare what's comparable not foolish things.
I am in the US and all I pay in month is about 600dollars including unlimited Wifi, trash and electricity. This same one bed house will cost over 7million per annum in Nigeria. If you add cost of petrol, security and data monthly. It will be up to 8million. Note also, I use over 70gb on my phone and close to 150gb data on my laptop every month on my laptop. I have access to the Gym, pool, drives my car on a good road. I do not also have to pay for Cooking gas

That's not the same in the field of programming bro... You experience matters in the field of Engineering and programming... take that or leave it.
People get employed directly from India, china, Nigeria and other countries without even education.. Your experience matters alot especially due to the fact that hes worked with Banks to the extent of earning 120k dollars from Projects.
Again, in Engineering and IT, experience matters alot.
|Business / Re: How Old Were You When You Made Your First Million?, And How? by Predstan: 4:44pm On Jul 10|
Who is this again? 20k dollars for agric business in the US? You think it's like the Agric they do in Nigeria or what
20k will not be enough to start a Business especially one that needs landmass and some license. And again, it's not easy to get a loan. You need a good credit score that doesnt come easily. However, you can start that business with 0$. All you have to do is write a very good proposal and you will be able to submit it in some places

A programmer can earn that as a starter. Remember, he has the experience already so hes not an entry level candidate but an experienced one.
|Travel / Re: $120,000 To Leave Nigeria Or 450,000 Naira Salary? by Predstan: 4:15pm On Jul 10|
You haven't experienced the other world, why wont you say that? 5k$ to 500k? You must be joking
|Travel / Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Predstan: 3:18pm On Jul 10|
Can I tell you that even if you dont receive classes everyday, you may have to use the internet everyday. From assignment to writing papers. I use over 80gb monthly on my phone, this includes instagram, twitter and other SM tho. I tried tracking the data I use on my PC and it was up to 150gb in a month, although, this includes personal development and LinkedIn Learning platform.
Classes will not be the only thing you do with the internet. You must be ready to subscribe atleast a hundred GB in a month.
Please carefully select your network provider according to your location. Do not go for the cheapest but the best. Weekly assignments and quizes contribute greatly to your final grade and 1 or 2 weeks can hurt your grade so badly. Remember, over 90 percent is A. My school's A grade starts from 94percent.

Cocao:You dont understand it. It is better to know what's on ground and the reality so that you can plan adequately than being hopeful where there is no way. Even Current students dont know the direction Fall 2020 will go talk more of visa applicants.
