Re: PhD Thread
But I do believe if one has done a due justice to what he achieved in his PhD, he should be able to move forward in life (not just because of PhD but because of what he gained in the journey).
As regards to Indians getting PhDs in US, there are many cases where every one is not able to crack an ivy league college but gets a PhD from a next level college. It can result in negation of one's expectations. An example being the person in question may be looking get a good option in US ( not easily forthcoming). In the end he either looks at a lower caliber job or stares at returning back to base.
The article which Samurai pointed is also not far from truth. To note: Education in US not cheap by all means. One has to make ends meet to get through college. Hence once past college most look forward to a good satisfying life. Looks like its a sign of times. Industry and acads are not face to face.

I know of 2 individuals both PHD's who choose to do what they like and take a hit on pay scale:
My cousin rejected offer from one of pharmas and now works for 50% of pay offered. But he is very happy professionally.
Another person I know quit a high paying position with Qualcomm to continue his research- again taking a hit on pay.
