interconnection coincidence?

There's a longish thread over at mitmit from an applicant about what the 'tute is like, etc. I have a bit of a subthread going with pwaa, who has radiaperlman as a friend. Turns out this is the Radia Perlman, author of Interconnections Second Edition. I'm reviewing sections of the book right now to help bring me up to speed on things I will need to know to get a peering coordinator job (or a router software development job, for that matter).

Umm, no, I didn't claim that high GPA was for working hard, I claimed that high GPA was for choosing major and classes that are easier/grade easier. In fact, I'd argue that some of the hardest-working students at MIT are the ones that don't get high GPA's because they're in really tough majors.

As a course 18 and 21M who took some classes outside my major, and had friends outside my major, I *know* that it was easier to get a high GPA in 18 and 21M than, say, 6 or 16.

As for the other majors I mentioned, I didn't say they *were* easier, I said they had a *reputation* for being easier. Obviously I don't have the data to know for sure.
