day and night

us born indians are as white bread as you can get, immigrant indians have more distinct cultural differences. US born indians "seem" to be more at ease around white people than around other indians, if adcoms have had interactions with us grown indians, it is unlikely that adcoms lump us grown indians with immigrant indians.

as far as I know, Indian citizens fall often into the "international" category while US-born Indians fall into the "US" category.

I think they are different pools, but still both very competitive. I think Indian citizens have it much tougher than Indian US citizens such as myself.

One thing I still can't figure out is which bucket I would fit into - I'm an Indian citizen who also happens to be a US permanent resident and I grew up mostly in the US. I've always gotten supervague replies from the various schools when I've asked... I guess we'll find out!

Permanent citizens fall into the US applicant pool for most schools.
