gerbilpox: Everyone knows Asian students get bad grades and drag down the average. I blame the parents for teaching them to be lazy and shiftless.


Yeah,

Except no.

I was asked by a colleague "When did American students stop going for their PhD's? All this foundational research was done in the 70s 80s and 90s by students with American names"

My Answer : "When Students from overseas started using the Graduate programs as ways to earn prestige and admittance to the US Job Market"

And yes, I will say this : The Students from overseas are very smart, but they also cheat like hell - and each in their own way

fusillade762: 'Embedded racism' made development offices wary of Asian donors

We're supposed to be racist towards Asians now? I missed that memo.


Right. And what college would accept just any free money?
