"judging her... judging her... Oh, a PhD. Previous judgement rewritten"

having a PhD doesn't mean anything besides the fact that you have a PhD. She could still be insanely stupid or an ass hole and have a PhD. Doesn't change anything.

She could be insane or an asshole, but a stupid person with a PhD? **** no.
User avatar #32 to #21 - srskate (11/03/2013) [-]
You cannot be insanely stupid and still have a PhD. One of the requirements for having a PhD is intelligence.
You can probably be an asshole, but it'll be difficult to get a PhD that way considering that a large part of getting a PhD is politics.

Other than that, wearing a tiara doesn't mean anything other than wearing a tiara, but I still made judgements based on it. Not all judgements are valid, but humans make them often because they are convenient and save time.

What Kristal doesn't realize is that even earning her Phd, won't bring her daddy back!

And even if that were true, a PhD in a science is much more impressive.
#23 to #3 - John Cena (11/03/2013) [-]
Honestly, no, it depends on the PhD. The fact that she earned one is still impressive though!

I am not criticizing that particular girl, but as a french guy I truly wonder what level of difficulty it requires to get a Phd in USA. I mean come on, in France getting a Phd is reserved to the highest academical elite, only the finest reseachers and the hardest workers get a scholarship to finance their doctoral thesis and the title actually means something.    
But it seems that in the USA getting a Phd is just like "man I don't know what to do, let's study in X field a few more years". I study as a future researcher myself and I am always amazed by the level of stupidity and incompetence of "doctors" from USA and Canada (professors or co-workers), it's like being passionate about a particular subject is enough to get a Phd in America. And that girl is once again increasing my doubts about your academical system, I don't know her and of course I can't judge her whole life just by having seen the show, but she clearly doesn't match the profile of a doctor, plus she's wearing a freaking tiara and she bears the name of a stripper for crying out loud...    
   
And it's really specific to canadians and US doctors, I see scientists from all over the world in a regular basis and I'm positive that americans are on average the most incapable and inefficient workers. I know it is being condescending and I am probably sound like a "european jerk" to you americans, but I weep for your future...

The American college system has become so over saturated with degrees its hard enough to get a job anymore.

The latter being irrelevant, degrees are a commodity now and don't mean anything.
User avatar #30 to #28 - awakendhybrid (11/03/2013) [-]
I don't really know how much this differs elsewhere, but in the US we are conditioned from a very young age to believe that it would be best for our future successes if we just keep continuing our education.

What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

Her name may be Kristal, but that doesn't mean **** . She may not have the "profile of a doctor" but that doesn't mean she can't be a damn good one.

In America, a PhD is still a degree that takes much rigor to acheive. Maybe some sloppy institutions hand them out like nothing, but if you want to graduate from an Ivy league school or MIT with a PhD, you better be ready to do work, son.

But once again I am not american, I was more asking than affirming something.

About the name, you're half true, but you're not seeing the sociological angle. The name gives away a lot of clues actually, for example in France people with 90's american shows' names such as Brittany or Brandon are usually the equivalent of what you could call a redneck in your country, poor people with poor manners, low education and no job. It comes from the fact that the people who named their children after their favorite show character in dallas or **** like this, were the ones who were unemployed and spend all day in front of TV (these shows were broadcasted during the day, never at night). Anyway nowadays all the Dylans and the Beverleys in France are low lives, they dropped out of school at 15 and have no job because most of them are nearly illiterate, it's not a absolute truth but a statistical one you know. I don't have the room to explain all the theory in here but I assume you get the thing.

That girl is named Krystal, of course it doesn't mean she's a stripper but it gives a lot of informations on her parents and her position in the socioeconomic scale, social determinism gives you the rest of info you need to operate the deduction. And it's statistically true for other names, Laquisha and Tanisha are less likely to achieve a Phd than Sara or Judith, it's a fact. And it's not even racist because african americans who succeeded don't name their daughter Laquisha or Diamond, they like to chose names fitted for future job employment.

So yes, being named Krystal "means **** " when you're an african american.

Concerning your best american colleges, I know what they are worth, and the level is freaking impressive, any student in the world would love to study in Harvard, Yale or the MIT, but I think it's the problem actually, you have incredible universties reserved to a few people with large pockets filled with money and the remaining colleges are just a formality, basically you pay your entry and you leave 8 years later with a Phd...

As for dredging away at poor university for a few years, I cannot speak explicitly to that because I have no knowledge of those trends. I have some tangentially related information though.

As it turns out, I literally just read a chapter of a book by Malcolm Gladwell, got the kindle in my hands and everything. The short version is that being the best at a mediocre or poor institution is better than being the worst at the most prestigious schools, despite the worst at MIT being smarter that the best at the next best schools.

I think I started rambling somewhere up there. ANYWAY
Most really bad schools don't have graduate programs. Additionally, if you do get a PhD from somewhere like University of Pheonix Online (which I'm not even sure is possible) no one will respect that. I can say with conviction, however, that PhDs from average and state colleges/universities in Maryland are hard to obtain, with only the best receiving them.
