Next roommate was Praveen, an IIT Roorkee graduate. Roorkee was not yet an IIT. He openly admitted that he scored a 1 %ile on GRE verbal. He always considered himself to be a genius. His academic performance did not support his assertion. I thought he was 60%ile on quantitative GRE.
He got a job with prestigious Bell Labs after getting his Green Card where he has worked long-time.
