We have investigated the polarization dependence of the emission spectra of p-shell multiexcitons of a quantum dot when the single particle level spacing is larger than the characteristic energy of the Coulomb interactions. We find that there are many degenerate multiexciton states. The emission intensities depend on the number of degenerate initial and final states of the optical transitions. However, unlike the transition energies, they are essentially independent of the strength of the Coulomb interactions. In the presence of electron-hole symmetry the independence is exact.
