Grad School Advice, Anyone?
I didn't think I'd be soliciting advice with this blog, but I've been thinking about applying to PhD programs and I know some of my readers are PhDs or doctoral students. So here's the question--if you're looking for the kind of intellectual stimulation in your primary career that academia affords, is academia the only place to go? Or are there intellectual careers outside academia?

I just stumbled across your blog - I don't have a Ph.D, just a couple of Master's degrees...

I would say that academia probably provides intellectual adventures more than the industry does - especially when it comes to doing what one wants to.

I've fulfilled my need for such stimulation by doing part-time courses and degrees at the expense of my employer :)
