Do you want to study in the United States? Well, you don't need to send me an email. I get an average of 100 email inquiries every day from people from around the world, especially from Nigeria, about studying in the US.

Since I can't possibly answer all the emails, I've decided to create a page specifically to answer the questions that I get from readers of my column and to archive my previous articles on the subject of studying in America.
