US Resident Vs. US Citizen [#permalink] New post 02 May 2011, 08:50
Hi Alex,

Will a US resident compete against his/her home country's / region candidates for admission or would he/she be compared with US citizens? Being and underrepresented minority myself, I'm guessing that I would be better off being compared to other minorities in the US, where I have lived for nearly 15 years.

Thanks!

As I mentioned in another thread, "diversity" has less to do with what you declare in the application form, and more to do with what you talk about in your essays and interviews.

It's about your own individual experiences and perspectives. Not every American (of any race, and even within the same race) is the same. Neither is every international student. When b-schools talk about diversity, it's not just about superficial surface level facts (i.e. what your official legal status is), but what you can bring to the table as an individual - and whose experiences may be informed or a byproduct of the culture you were brought up in as well as a culture/sensibility that you may have since adopted later in your childhood/adult life. In other words, it's not cut-and-dried like many applicants may think.
