Do they consider it an important aspect in their culture? My country’s (India) view on education I feel is very narrow-minded and inflexible as only some professionals are highly respected and have higher job opportunities while others do not. Further, India’s education system is more of textbook learning until high school than more of applied or research based. Education is an important aspect in our culture as we believe that education is very important for success in the future in the context of either jobs or life. Why do you think your country views education in the way it does? I am not sure about this answer but I can say that our country is very diverse and has many different perspectives and opinions but only some of them get across the fight due to strongly rooted stereotypes in the society. Why did you decide to come to the US for your education? Well I decided to come to the U.S because unlike in India one can educate themselves via real life skills, research, and flexibility. For instance, I can take different courses like economics and biology together but here in my country that is not possible, we have to stick to only one or 2 subjects throughout university life. Why Madison in particular? UW-Madison has great research and job opportunities for my chosen major which is Genetics and Genomics. Moreover, it has a diverse student body and world class faculty who are both talented and caring.
