i was a bit offended by river's post the first time i glanced over it...sounded like a bit of indian arrogance and american disdain. are indians the most academically qualified? then i reread it and could tell was trying to stay pc in his wording.

foreigners can disparage the usa, but theres a reason most people here are applying to MBAs in the usa. we've pretty much dominated every aspect of society the past few decades. we have the best scientists, athletes, soldiers, economists, whatever.

id like to believe river was making fun of the limited view non-americans have of the usa. we are the most diverse nation in the world, and theres no way to summarize americans in a few words like he did.

anyway

USA! USA!


sorry if i overreacted / misread, but i am glad someone else was offended at first glance. it really made me mad, because i live in a very diverse area, and I get to work with many different cultures (although mostly asian/middle eastern.) 99.99% of the time everything is hunky dory - but occasionally we get the bloke who pines for the homeland , doesn't assimilate well into North American culture (which isn't that hard to do, BTW, USA meets you halfway vis-a-vis acculturation, and you get to keep much of your original cultural identity) and just starts to complain. i've joked with other desis that we will take a collection and ship them home.


also, my neighborhood and watercooler conversations start to get uneasy when the .01% I've met talk about how the US sucks, commercialism sucks, sin this, debauchery that, and we need sharia law, blah blah blah, when the ink on the H1-B hasnt even dried yet. for some reason in both work and in the neighborhood, i am the person people gravitate towards when they need to kvetch about something. my mediterranean complexion and features means i get to hear everyone complain about whitey... people assume i am middle eastern.. but im not, i am italian...

ouch, first ding of the season! :(

anon, I know what you're saying, but the situation here is a bit different than some foreigners dissing American culture. As Americans, I don't know anyone of my friends who *wouldn't* diss some parts of American culture from time to time, and that's what makes this country great! :)

I just had to bump this thread back up, because I just checked my e-mail and had invitations to attend informational events from both Ross and MIT! I almost feel like one of you guys now! **wipes tear from my eye**

Of course, I'm also still getting about 500 e-mails a day from IIT...

If you guys want to get recruiting emails, just PM me your email address and I'll make sure that Darden sends you a bunch of stuff. The admissions office has open enrollment right now for prospective candidates and I'm sure they would be happy to include any of you. They'll be even happier if you submit an application and pay the fee. :)

But seriously, if any of you want to get some official stuff from Darden, PM me.
