Wrong Name

My Nigerian GA is applying for a PhD program in the US. He’s been with us for a year, and he seemed very smart but now I’m discovering that he’s learned nothing. His name is Adebowale but he’s putting “Gabriel” on his applications instead. If you’ve studied in the US for a year and you still haven’t figured out that Adebowale beats Gabriel on a college application, I’m starting to wonder about your powers of observation.
