This is an interesting article I found on PhD selection committee and their criterion. Interesting read for PhD aspirants.

"What goes on behind closed doors when professors decide who should get chance to earn a Ph.D.? Author of new book was allowed to watch. She saw elitism, a heavy focus on the GRE and some troubling conversations."

fall13vox A very informative article. Loved it. Very interesting to read about all the biases, elitism etc that goes on behind those closed doors.

Thanks. I might actually buy a copy of this book.

Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth. -Fyodor Dostoyevsky
