I want to thank the wonderful men and women that God used to make this day a success, thank you for your prayers, love and support. Thanx to Deetus for your time, a day never passed by without your advice, interviews and words of encouragement, thanx texrem for sevis fee payment, mock interview, and contributing to my transcript especially when i was depressed.Thanx robedolu for making this dream real and also introducing Brightify to me, @brightify your scolding on the first day of interview made me to sit up,

OK... The free GRE went to Adazlolly when I finally roll of my bed I'm going to do it, I will also subsidize 2/3 other peoples GRE/TOEFL by 30% or so percent by registering it at #250 to $1. My whole budget for this thing is $400-$450 . between paying bills and some serious flexing here it doesn't leave much extra.
So I am going to stick to guys who mailed me first. Ipledge, chinewon88 and Venek . as a special concession to lagoismyhome (I'll see what I can do about teekay) . I am not paying for this alone I am been supported by a female NL'der also studying here that has chosen to remain anonymous and also another friend from UMBC . pls remember us in your prayers
May God bless you, the female NL' der, and your UMBC friend for supporting our dreams. Amen.

Hello please I need help. I went to an approved testing centre(Mikon institute in Benin) to make inquiries about SAT registration, and I was told that the registration plus study materials plus tutorials is N105k.. I shock.. i simply told them to give me the price for just the registration, i was told N55,500.I tried to tell them that the reg fee on the college board website is $45 without eassy+$35 add ons for non US residents, bringing the total cost for registration to $80 which is N28k In naira (N350/$), I even asked them if I can just register by myself online and choose their institute as my testing centre(it's the only approved centre in Benin) but they told me that it's not possible. That I must go through them. please i'll appreciate advice thanks.
I wish d was another centre , I would have given u directives on how to register by urself......sadly none

Flight was on Sunday 14th August.
I got to the MMIA around 2:45pm, joined the queue at Emirates stand to get checked in for boarding pass and collect baggage claim.
The immigration officer asked what items I had, told him clothing, garri, beans and dried fish. He used his hand to feel all the items and ask me to "shake body" I gave him 1k sha.
Congrat....enjoy your stay in obamaland
Moved to get boarding pass and baggage claim, then I was directed to go to gate E55 for pre boarding check.
All the officials at immigration checks want a tip. Well I gave few and ignored others after I had given my brother the remaining naira cash on me, then I bid my family a goodbye as I joined gate E55 queue around 4:12pm.
By 4:48PM, I was done with all checks, joined the large crowd sitting at the waiting room of gate E55
I boarded by 5.30 after my zone number was called, checked for my number seat and things seem to happen fast.
I did not have chance to seat with a chic, I was stuffed in the middle of 2 elderly ladies, pretty sure they are mummies..
O boy... Emirates sweet. The touch screen in my front cannot be fully exhausted, well I no dull myself. I listened to music tracks of Fela, Whitney, Rihanna & Bob Marley, watched CNN.
Plane took off exactly 6:06pm, Naija time.
I decided to eat spiced chicken with herbs, plus orisirisi appetizer. Anytime I remember the amount wey I use buy ticket, I go juz vex put mouth for everything in my food tray.
Some will taste like Shiite, but I go juz gulp water to drain it down. Drinks?? I had few can of beer, spirit mixed with juice and white wine. Wetin concern me.
Watched Money Monster, listen to music, slept off for a while then we landed at Dubai 4:30am for stop over.
Mehn Dubai airport na business center.
I located Gate C17 for flight connecting to Houston.
Used WiFi to connect to a dubai laptop seller that we already had a deal to deliver to me at Dubai airport, he did not reply chat then I wasted money to buy a call card for 30AED
His fone rang, but he wouldn't pick up, I had to dash out the call card to a cleaner at the airport after I tried calling Naija all to no avail.
Boarding to Houston flight started at about 7:40AM Dubai time.
Took off around 9:15AM Dubai time
I slept alot during this flight cos my seat was close to the air hostess where I had chance to stretch my legs.
Smell of food always wake me though
Stop over @Toronto to refuel 2:18PM Canada time. We never alighted here, so I viewed Canada from the window.
In about 45mins we were on our way to IAH.
Watched movies, CNN and listened to music mostly while I napped.
By 5:20 we landed at IAH and moved to POE.
POE: Hello! Your passport pls, what are you doing in the states?
Me: I'm here for studies as I gave her passport, admission letter and i20.
POE: Oh. You are a student.
Me: Yes ma'am
POE: Checks my passport and mentioned my name almost correctly and smiled, then asked if she pronounced it well
Me: I smiled back and said yes.
POE: What are you studying?
Me: Computer Sc.
POE: OK, she then proceeded to do biometric
She then asked me to wait at the back of her booth that an officer will come take me from there. Holding my passport and i20.
I waited a few seconds and an officer directed me and some few others to a room where immigration and police admitted us in.
I think one lady from Algeria had issue with her visa, dunno if she was deported.
While waiting in this room to be attended to, I sharply connected to Wi-Fi, chat up my uncle, who told me that he is already waiting for me outside.
Then I made a silent prayer to God that nothing should hinder me.
After about 30 minutes the officer called me and handed over my docs - passport, i20 and admission letter.
Then I went down through the escalator to claim my baggage where it passed through screening, my passport was checked here again.
Then I was free, and voila I went out of the airport to meet my uncle....
Mehn. America is damn organized.

I replied your pm but the email is different from the one above.
You'd need to be careful not to buy the old SAT textbook or use materials for the old SAT.
If data isn't a problem, you can use khan academy as they have a partnership with College board to offers tutorials and test pratice. Then also there's a particular youtube channel that also helped me prepare. I'd forward the name later on.
Tnx so much....... Av sent u a mail
