[B]3. How is education system different than India?[/B]

The diversity in the classroom here is quite an experience in itself. Education in India lacked the kind of diversity Owen offers and student can find it as a welcome breath of fresh air. It really opens your eyes to the challenges of working in a global environment.
[U]In the Classroom[/U]
The classes here are very immersive. Most professors spend less time lecturing and more time illustrating principles with sound examples. Class is also made livelier with presentations, movies, product demonstrations and personal anecdotes.
Grades are not given the absolute number one priority. While they are important, it is also important to do other things outside of courses, such as participating in case competitions, picking up a foreign language, learning more about a new sport or listening to country music.
Out-of-class assignments take up quite some time, especially group assignments. Working in teams is challenging due to diverse teams with people having different points of view and having different levels of communication skills.
[U]Using the internet[/U]
Almost everything is done online. Assignments are submitted online, rooms are reserved online, jobs and grades are posted online.
[U]Class Size[/U]
Class sizes are generally small and typically range from 30-50 students. In some elective classes I have had instances where fewer than 10 students are in a class. In Engineering you can find around 70 students in class but then kind of lecture has been taken under large auditorium.
[U]Custom Learning[/U]
The opportunity to customize your Masters. It is interesting to see the number of options in terms of electives that can be taken to concentrate in a particular field. Plus, due to the limited amount of time spent in the classroom there are ample opportunities to pursue internships or independent study projects.
[U]Leadership opportunities[/U]
There are a tremendous number of clubs you can be associated with at Vanderbilt. Because of the small class sizes and varied interests it is incredibly easy to attain leadership positions. Indian student organization is one of the on campus student organization.
