I think there's something to be said for the "original language" argument. One of the (many) reasons I wasn't accepted to an "elite" physics PhD program was my total inability to learn German (beyond bier). But, there were plenty of good US physics programs without that original language requirement and I went to a good but not elite big school. So while there are "must be C#" shops I see evidence that there are still many more that are are C#/VB agnostic.
