Non-conventional Wisdom Can Make Big Difference When Applying to Graduate School

The purpose behind graduate school is to help promising students become experts in some domain. The particular degree obtained, however, tends to obscure the specialized nature of the competence that has been acquired along the way. Different individuals who hold the same advanced degree in the same field will differ in terms of the nature of their acquired expertise. After you are done, and you have your Ph.D., you will find that the degree is not what actually determines the jobs or careers for which you are qualified. Instead, your qualifications are determined by the particular areas in which you have gained special expertise.
