The Wonders of Grad School

By some synchronicity these two depressing articles, one in the Economist, and the other in the Chronicle of Higher Ed, have been presented to me at the same time (though one is in fact from Feb of this year).  Yeah, the job market is bad.  Universities use PhD students as laborers and don’t care if you get a job or not.  Your tuition just funds their programs.  What’s the recommendation?  Don’t go.  What if you are already there?  Find another career!  What if you really like what you are doing?  Suffer.
