The MSID program focuses on both academic and experiential learning; you take classes and then do an internship on your own. The highlight (by far) is living with Indian families and being able to work with other Indians at your internship. The organization of MSID can be difficult at times but most frustrations can be attributed to the challenges of living in India in general. You have to be very independent and push to learn/explore things - the program staff is very knowledgable and well-connected, but they will not hand things to you.
