Shoot Ptp...with you moving on up via Columbia..her entire village will take on your last name....j/k (we are all brothers and sisters here man..besides, there's at least a 45%-60% chance you have Nigerian ancestors anyway (Fon, Yoruba, Edo, Istekiri, Igbo and maybe Ibibio))

I'm so happy I found this thread!  I never imagined there was a such a large contingent of Nigerians on LSD. But then again, I shouldn't be too surprised to find out we've colonized yet another territory.

I'm Yoruba--although the ocassional relapse into Valley-girl accent might fool you (unfortunate side-effect of my California days).

To answer King Shark's question: I'll likely attend a NY school even though I keep playing footsie with PENN. As for jobs, I'll prob. end up in BIGLAW if I can get in...can't send money to all the relatives in Naija on a Public Interest salary  :)

Wait till they start calling you to
1.send $$$..as in US Dollars..Greenbacks, nothing less than a note with Grant or Ben Franklin on it (God help you if even think of changing it to Naira)
2. sponsor a cousin's child in the US
3. build a house for one uncle or auntie
4. Fly someone over for treatment
5. and did I mention send money

 ;D

Oh..Pythagoras shall I expect you to be repping for Egbe Omo Oduduwa at Cravath?

King Shark, don't forget #6: Paying the caterer for your cousin-in law's uncle's best-friend's god-mother's daughter's wedding.

"Oh..Pythagoras shall I expect you to be repping for Egbe Omo Oduduwa at Cravath?"

Lol...only if there's a branch at Sullivan Cromwell. Or Akin Gump, or Skadden Arps, or Watchell, or etc etc etc  ;)

Harvard seems like my first choice right now (my mother is ecstatic, of course). My plans will probably be more concrete once I spent some time in law school, but I'm strongly considering immigration law or international development work.

It's crazy and unconstitutional and disappointing since I once had hopes for Obasanjo. But anyway, disappointment, flouting the constitution, and craziness...what's new in Nigeria?
