As the interview went on, at one point, I said to her “It’s really difficult to have a serious conversation with you.” Because she’s has this gregarious and upbeat personality.  It’s hard to stop laughing. You see what I’m talking about as you watch the following interview. Plus, this interview took over 3 hours to record (and we recorded an interview in Tamil (our native language as well).

      One of dynamic students I have interviewed here on the blog.

    Very nice videos. The information she said is true and practical. She really explains the life of an international student living in US very well. Students are looking for free stuff and all. But it is really important to interact with all the people here, as you will know what is going around. University of Texas at Tyler is a beautiful university but I would prefer the weather of California over Texas. Weather in LA is just like the weather in central India.

    • Raghuram Sukumar on February 26, 2016 at 10:28 PM

      Thanks for commenting here. About LA.. weather is very good, but you are looking at $1500 for single bed oom apartment rent vs $700 for double bed apartment in Texas. Not to mention the fee difference. Are you talking about USC?

      • Abishai on February 27, 2016 at 10:11 PM

        Your are right Raghu, rent and expenses are high in LA. but living here certainly gives more exposure to different experiences. I am talking about CSU.

        • Raghuram Sukumar on February 28, 2016 at 2:07 PM

          Ok. Thanks.
