    Send 'em on over. Our Universities are superior anyway, so it's a win-win.

    good for her and us. now if we can get her to stay that would be better, she starts with an F1 and M1 ( vocational education) visa, which can lead tio citizenship.

    Its also pretty much insane to limit HB1 visas ( foreign worker) too 85,000 a year ..*shrugs*

    Student and parent motivation. You talk to Asian students they are internally driven like crazy.

    When I was taking classes last year at the local community college the student body was more than 40% foreign, and all those foreign students were concentrated in the technical side. American students couldn't give a rip

    I'll tell you what it is about India.

    But first you gotta watch Slumdog Millionaire.

    I had a couple friends in high school that were from India and 2 from Bangladesh that were brothers, all of them studied their asses off, went to really good schools and now have outstanding jobs and careers, their parents would not accept anything less than total success in academics.

    Less than total success in India means spending your life (which will be mercifully shortened) working in a sweatshop 18 hours a day, and watching your kids play in feces.

    Less than total success in The Land of the Free means you have to go to work at your dad's Chevy dealership, or spit out kids so you can collect higher welfare checks and you can afford to watch Jerry Springer on Cable TV.

    Very true Samson, very true, except that now that job at the Chevy dealership probably won't be there.

    I was using the analogy to describe the wide range of trustfund babies.

    OK, Hundai dealership. Better?
