    I'm going to move this to the International forums. If you have any questions about international residencies/electives, or can answer other people's questions about African electives/resideny/options, please post there :) .

    Thanks!

    Very much nigerian. Raised entirely in Ikeja-Lagos, attended Chrisland Primary School ('92) and Airforce Secondary Schools (class of '98). I will be attending Columbia University College of Physical and Surgeons ( Deferred admission) next year. Feel free to PM me. Peace.

    P.S: Hope Germany loses by 4 goals

    If u have a green card, ur not considered an international student, cause u have permanent residence, and can apply to any med schl without any problems. You also qualify for just about every loan. :)

    @Dr Maxy,
    Wo ho te sen? :)

    No, I'm Nigerian not Ghanaian, have been to Accra, and have made a lot of Ghanaian friends along the way. Its all African love :clap:

    I always wondered how students feel about Howard - not being sarcastic or anything - but since it is predominantly an African-American School, I never met anyone who attended that school or will be attending there.

    Kendra: do you mind sharing with us what your reasons for thinking about attending Howard are? and your experience while you was there for the interview.

    :D
