Why PHD? February 19, 2006

Posted by jyu in Uncategorized.

Got into a discussion with Sun today.  He mentioned that how different people have different perception of doing PHD.  Some people do it to become the researchers.  Some want to become a professor.  Some think it’s a step upward for the job.  PHD friends and family are just proud. 

Someone told me one time that PHD is just someone who doesn’t know anything else, but just knows a lot of one thing.  Vic also mentioned once that one thing that we get out of the PHD program is just thinking differently.

Is it worth the time and money?  Why put yourself through the painful process?  Is there really going to be a PHD at the end of the tunnel?  At what point do you know that you are not gonna make it?
