…of the defenders of non-science graduate school programs.
I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating: almost finishing grad school was a heck of a better career move for me than actually finishing it would have been. The pay was better, I had more options for jobs, and prospective employers perked right up when I frankly told them that the odds of me going back to grad school under the circumstances* were somewhere between slim and none.
So if you can manage to flee grad school without too much in the way of student loans…
*Nothing spectacular. Beer. Women. A certain arrogance (yes, I know, how shocking). It ended… well, not poorly: got a wife and a decent career out of it. But it ended fairly dramatically.
