Often times i receive a DM about visa rejection at the @USEmbassyAbuja, just like this morning. So going forward, I'm offering interview tips to help you with a successful application.

US consular officers would really like to see that applicants are honest, stay for the authorized duration and come back promptly after your trip. Whether your application gets accepted or rejected, visa interview has factors involved in whether ur visa gets approved or not.
1. Dress well (I mean formally). Your appearance should convey who you are. If you're a student, dress like one. And if you are a business/executive, you should look like one.

Giving birth in a country that offers birthright citizenship is the easiest way to give your child the gift of a second passport. All that u and your spouse need to do is make plan to give birth in the right place and I'm here to give u suggestion with my life changing thread.
Young couple and about to Wed folks should always discuss the important things wanted in life, such as children and how you can make life easier for them while growing up. I understand this option certainly isn't for everyone. It's not easy to find a partner willing to travel...
And it's even more difficult to find someone who would be comfortable have a baby in a foreign country, away from their doctor and family. But giving birth overseas can be both an interesting experience and also a way to give your child a precious gift.

The Graduate Management Admission Test(GMAT) Score is used by various Graduate Business Schools around the world to evaluate the candidature of applicants who want to pursue their graduate studies from univ abroad.

List of Schools without GMAT requirement. MBA
I understand most prefer taking the GMAT exam. However, there are some applicants, who face a confusing situation regarding this exam. Questions like:

1. Is the GMAT score required in all B-schools?
2. Is it compulsory to take this test for business/M programs ?

So this morning I'm doing a thread on study in Estonia. Higher education in this small European country comes at a good value, with relatively low tuition fee, living cost and various scholarships for international students.
As a student in Estonia you can take advantage of various discount and special offer especially if you're a full time student. Most importantly, international students can work part-time or full time job and get some extra income to cover the living expenses during studies.
Most likely you ask me: why come to study in Estonia?

1. Estonia is an e-society, e-government, e-health, e-school and even e-parking etc.

2. It takes about 30 minute to found your own company online and 99% of banking done online.

3. Estonia is Europe's startup hot-spot.

Difference between Conditional and Unconditional Offer Letter: There are two types of offer letters that universities can send to you- Conditional and unconditional. Here i will discuss a few differences between the two.

An offer letter from a university abroad essentially means that you have been accepted for the program you applied to. Conditional and unconditional offer letters are often the type of letter universities can to you.
A conditional offer letter has specific conditions with it. It means you need to have certain grades or marks for the same, whereas unconditional offer letter has no conditions with it, and reflects that your grades, whether high or low, have been accepted by the University. 💪

Germany is short of nurses, care workers, construction workers, carpenters, electricians, and IT specialists. Council have long been demanding that the government make it easier for foreign skilled workers to move to Germany.

I hope this new immigration law helps out though.
A few details from a leaked preliminary draft for a new immigration law, which is set to be approved by Angela Merkel's cabinet before the end of the year.
The draft would strip away a key regulation: That people from outside the EU can only take a job if there is no German or EU citizen who is able to do it instead. Not only that, the new regulation will not be limited to sectors where there is an acute shortage.
