That's the number of Indian students studying in American universities during 2006-07, about 14 percent of all foreign students (582,984).

The Inside Higher Ed story is here. The Open Doors report is here; some data tables are available for free, but some -- such as data on academic level and place of origin -- are not.

Another document (doc, accessed from this page) with India-specific data tells us that over 71 percent of Indian students are in graduate programs.
