Oh, and no. For the most part, we do not count as URM in higher academia.

stupid question...define South East Asian. You mean Indian? Like Bangalore?
Yeah, I guess I fall into the category of South East Asian / Indian since thats what I am mostly. I think one of my parents was even from Bangalore!
HOW IS IT? EASY OR HARD TO GET A JOB AS A TIER 4 SCHOOL?
Where should I go next fall? / Re: Can mid 150 to high 150 get in to a second tier (or a respectable LS) in US?« on: July 27, 2005, 03:31:39 PM »
A score in the high 150's complimented by a range of extra-curriculars, strong LORs, and a solid GPA will get you into almost all by the Top 25 IMHO. (There are some exceptions here obviously). A rather average GPA and a score in the high 150's will definitely still get you into Tier 2.
YES! The grade was changed from a D to a B I ont have to jump out the fifth floor window!
I hope you kicked that professor in the nuts.

f-ing hell...damn you new Inspiron 700m keyboard!
Its really not that bad. You'll get used to it in a few days. I'm almost back to 99% normal typing speed on the 700m now after a few days of playing with it.

I think you've got to take the entire Bay Area into consideration when you're talking about San Francisco. There are a ton of things to do in the Bay Area as a whole. Dont just look at the city. The city has turned into a primarily work-business district. People live there, etc...but if you're looking to do things, usually you have to leave the city.
Within the city:
Numerous conferences and shows at Moscone Center
Giants games at SBC Park (formerly Pac Bell)
Museum of Natural Sciences in Golden Gate Park
49ers games at Candlestick in about a month
Numerous comedy clubs and dance clubs (IMO the best is Ruby Skkye)
Brown Bear Brewery
Outside the city, all accessible via BART. Which is IMO the most awesome public transportation system outside of Europe.
Numerous food places
UC Berkeley (which actually has a lot of cool publicly accessible *&^%) ~ including their law library. at least this summer it was.
San Jose/ Dublin / Pleasanton:
IMAX Theatres (theres one at Metreon also)
anyways...i'm bored of listing *&^%. Theres tons of things to do in SF, and yes, like most big cities, SF is pretty dirty. Dont knock the city until you've been there a little longer. It'll grow on you. I promise.
