0: totally programS, and doesn't make any difference you were an Indian or whether
you know, in there were students from Harvard, Princeton, you know the most
affluent part of our country .
B: What really makes the difference is whether or not you can perform, right?
0: Well, I guess that's exactly it. You know you have to carry your own, your own
level but I think probably my weakest area had to be mathematics. But again I'm
fortunate in the fact that my roommate, Lew, had majored in mathematics at the
University of Illinois, and as I saidI had a private pilots license, and I had
no problems with flying and aerodynamics and what have you. So we matched pretty
well because he had problems in that area, and I had really put it out, because
we went through a half-inch book of calculus in what, about three weeks/ you know.
And I had only gone through, you know Dr. Brown's college math courseyyou know,
and that wasn't a great background. But at least it was a basis. But the
mathematics part really was my only problem academically, but as I said it took
extra time, but I also had a roommate who was very helpful.
