  1. Do you mind I ask, what time exactly did you receive the transcript request? And what's your field of study?
  2. Hi bbdd2 I am also a Nigerian. I also got full funding for my PhD. My 1-20 is at hand and I am set to go ahead with my visa interview. I understand your worries but don't panic if you have secured funding from the school I believe the visa interview will go well. Check this thread on Nairaland for success stories. By the way which school are you attending? http://www.nairaland.com/240241/general-u.s.a-student-visa-enquiries/9 http://www.nairaland.com/823866/general-u.s.a-student-visa-enquiries-part2/1
  3. Hi, As part of the preparation for my first year of graduate school, I recently came across the book of Robert L. Peters on Amazon titled 'Getting What You Came For: The Smart Student's Guide to Earning A Master's or Ph.D'. I read the introductory part of the book and I discovered that it is a must read for prospective graduate students. However, It will be difficult for me to purchase the book at the moment due to some stringent financial constraints. For those who have read the book or have a PDF copy of the book, can you please assist me by forwarding the book to my e-mail (RED
  4. On February 17th, I was awarded a five-year graduate scholarship which covers an annual stipend of $21,000 and a full tuition waiver of $41,560. I received the admission package on February 23rd with an instruction to submit a copy of my international passport and other documents which I sent on February 25th. I was patiently waiting for the I-20 form when I suddenly received an email from the international office informing me that they have received financial documents of $62,560 (stipend and full tuition waiver) but they need a proof of financial support of $1261 because the total fee of my
  5. The issue has been resolved. OISS have once again prove why Rice university is the best place for me. I envisage that my experience at Rice will definitely be like leaving my home to another home. Love Rice.
  6. I will like to inquire from the international students attending Rice if they have received the I-20 Form. I have submitted the Rice scholarship letter and other documents required by the OISS, but I am yet to receive the I-20 form. Right now, I am about to enter a panic mood because the peak period for booking visa interview is fast approaching in my country and I am concerned about attending the mandatory international graduate student orientation. I called the OISS but their reply is not satisfactory at all and my department told me to be patient which is what I currently doing. Any idea ab
  7. Yes, I will be attending Rice this fall. I will like to inquire from the international students attending Rice if they have received the I-20 Form.

  8. Hello, I will like to inquire about the timeframe for schools to issue 1-20 forms for their admitted international students. I received my admission package on 23rd February and I replied the offer of admission on 27th February. However, I am yet to receive the 1-20 which I must have at hand before applying for the FI Visa. Any info on this will be greatly appreciated
  9. So finally I am IN. I am celebrating today like my birthday and all my referees have been pouring in congratulatory messages into my mail. The journey was so long, so tough and so rough, but I am happy I finally saw light at the end of the tunnel.
  10. This is exactly what I came to realize but to my surprise I only called twice. The first time I called I was not too clear about the info I received so I tried the second day, but I was surprised when the woman recognized my voice. These graduate applications have taught me many lessons that will stick in my memory forever.
  11. Are there any updates for the prospective applicants for FALL 2015? I am beginning to run crazy in refreshing my mail and even calling the secretary whom I am surprised have also recognized my voice. This waiting period has exhausted me. Any info will be appreciated by me.
  12. So today I summoned the courage to call my POI to inquire from him not the admission result, but the exact time I should be expecting a message about my application from the department. Before now I have developed a very good relationship with my POI and I was convinced of his interest to work with me. When I introduced myself on the phone, he was so happy to hear from me and he started by asking me of how far I am moving with my research which I responded positively. We discussed some recent developments in my country before I proceeded with my questions. Firstly, I told him I am aware that h
  13. I am also very interested in this topic. My situation is similar to the situation of Jezzlin. I had been in contact with my POI for One Year and Three Months before I officially submitted an application. Throughout our period of communication, my POI was very supportive and he showed a lot of interest in my research. He got me in touch with other professors, shared my articles with them and even went further to apply for an external fellowship on my behalf. After I submitted my application, I communicated with him and he assured me that he will try his best with the support of other professors
  14. Thank you for the links I found them very useful. Thanks and good luck
  15. Please can anybody inform me about the possible time frame when applicants will be informed of the admission results for the religious studies program at Rice University.
