Here is an excerpt from the closing of an article entitled, I can't spell, and I still got into graduate school: "from my perspective, if you can spell at a fourth-grade level, you should be able to get through life with little issue given today's technology and the formats in which we now produce writings." I disagree, but this is the author's opinion -- so fair enough. What is your opinion? I would love to hear from other graduate students, as well as professors. In the meantime, let's check out some grad school news:
- Perhaps there are several foreign students that can spell better than domestic students in the United States, but aside from that, how well do they acculturate?
- Some academics will gasp if people compare academia to the holy land; others might wholeheartedly agree. Is a acquiring a Ph.D. similar to a pilgrimage? An interesting perspective.
- Graduate student or not, what makes you think you can make bail on terrorism charge? He could have been a law student, but I still doubt he'd have made bail.
