Some comments on some Comments

whoa ! i just got off the bus from our outdoor thing and check the blog and see that there are 12 comments. kinda threw me off because i thought there was nothing in there of that much interest. i guess i was wrong.

c'mon people, the title was totally meant to be humorous. it was actually, if you could see it thus, mocking - the school was the one that called us the 'smartest' or whatever [smiley added for emphasis ;-)] by talking about gmat/gpa scores, but none of us even care about that. i hope you noticed that I had also, in a similar vein, modified the header on this blog.

and as does happen, a comment on the title led to one about validating stereotypes about indians and gre/gmat/numbers. well, stereotypes are funny things. they only exist in the minds of those who believe in them. actually, those who *want* to believe in them. let go, man or woman. not worth sweating over.

would you believe i've actually been sitting at this terminal for two hours writing this. Wrote a long post, deleted most of it, rewrote, and for symmetry, re-deleted. i'd say it was time not entirely wasted, as I also got to briefly chat(oops, my bad. 'network') with a classmate. in a more innocent time, i.e. before seemingly every second person here knew my blogdentity, i'd have mentioned that the classmate in question was actually quite pretty :-)
