Lying awake at night, wondering if there’s a GED…

When is a GED better than a PhD?  Now!  Kai Ma tells yet another story of disaster and despair in the humanities.  One of her correspondents tells her:

Every single academic, especially in the humanities, has a tinge of buyer’s remorse [about their PhD]. You see your peers in law or business school make down payments on homes and buy cars and go on vacation. But as a PhD student, you’re in your 30s, still renting an apartment and driving an ’84 Corolla. It’s not cute.

Advice:  Learn a trade!
