I just thought of sharing a quick tip for Current/Prospective Graduate students in the US. I think, in almost all universities, you get to do one or more project with almost all courses.
If it is a team project, don’t hesitate to choose/get a non-Indian (a foreigner, preferably an American) partner for your project. You get to learn many things (non-technical especially) from such an experience.
You can learn how he/she approaches a problem, how he/she manages time, how he/she interacts with team members, how professional he/she is in approach etc etc.
If you choose someone from your country, I believe, 60-70% of the traits will be similar and you end up learning only a few new things!.
Additionally, if you can build a good relationship with that guy/girl, you may end up finding an internship/full-time job in the US using his/her contacts!!.
Feel free to explore the world.
No need to limit yourself to Indian community!.
Note: I said this with all the respect I have for my country and countrymen. Please do take it in the right sense.

- Do you multi-ethnic groups of friends?
- Do you mingle with people from other countries in your campus?
