“Unrelated but I really find Nigeria’s Big4 deep obsession with 2-1 Bachelors Degree before you can join them weird. Got rejected by them cos I had a 2-2 only to get an offer from all Big4’s in the US with the same Nigerian 2-2 degree. Each time I remember, I just laugh.”

To counter people saying the competition, he responded with the following:

“Many folks have responded that bcos the competition to get in is always fierce, the 2:1 grade is to whittle down the list. A very fair point. The only risk is you can also end up chopping off real talents whose 2:2 degree does not define them. Everything is a risk anyway.”
