36. do you really think the Chinese science elite will be planting rice?
You started off this OP talking about PhD candidates -- the best of the best in sciences. And then the discussion deteriorated to "they'll end up planting rice if they don't get into the good old U.S. of A." As if those brilliant students MUST get into the U.S. or they'll end up planting rice. Do you honestly think the Chinese government would waste their brightest that way?

There are two classes in the U.S. as well. There are people in economic pain here as well. Why denigrate Chinese science scholars to make a point?
