Chronicles: Let’s wrap things up!

OK so we all know I’m way behind with these chronicles so in this post I’m going to zoom through the important points then I’m creating a page for all the main points and some website links for all future MOHE applicants! Enjoy and dont forget to comment. πŸ˜‰

Recap last chapter .. i gave up with the MOHE and depended on the cultural office in Washington.

My woman Ms. De La Cruz took 2 weeks off so I was tranferred to Ms. Noida Ashton .. HUGE THANKS TO HER!! All your work was highly apprecieated. She contacted the unis and got back to me saying a decision will be made soon. So I wait.

3 days later I getΒ a FedEx notification email saying a package is coming from Kansas State University. Woot! It’s my I-20 document and I’ve been accepted. Great news!! News from the other two unis? Nope.

The K-State wildcat πŸ˜›

1 week later the actual I-20 arrives at the MOHE, I head there and sit in the big manager office (yes I stole a sweety .. its for us afterall!) And I got my university papers and all that! Excitement and anxiety mixed together is not a good sight. Especially not with me. I fill out a visa application and get an appointment for next morning.

Come next morning I wake up with news that the University of Southern Illinois accpted me and my I-20 is on its way. I’m not bothered much and head to my embassy apointment. I’ll write a post about the whole experience (promise!) .. after the appointment i get a yellow slip and told to wait 😦 Dad got the same slip and had to wait for 1 month. Bad news!!

I return home sulking. Dad makes some calls and I get wasta from the ministry of foreign affairs .. I’ll get a visa at the end of the week. Woot! Same night I get an email saying University of North Carolina accpeted you. FUCK!

I WANT UNCC .. WANT is an understatment actually .. i email them asap .. how long will the I-20 arrive? aprox. a week! With my visa crap I wasnt taking chances so I let it go and stuck to Kansas State. Yes I emailed two universities and told them sorry Im NOT coming to your schools .. cause I’m awesome like THAT! πŸ˜›

Come end of the week I get a call from DHL, they pick up my passport, return it next day with a US visa. Hallelujah!! πŸ˜€

Meanwhile I booked my tickets andΒ  hotels via Expedia .. leaving on the 5th of JanuaryΒ  ..Β  EXCITED! Currently packing and running last minute errands. Going to an orientation tomorrow! πŸ˜›

Thank you for reading and sticking with me through out the journey .. much appreciated .. special thanks to Hunter! My rant buddy on twitter πŸ˜› Stay tuned for the MOHE page up there and see y’all soon! πŸ˜€
