Q: do u want to do phd in accounting

A:  No, not really.

Q:  is phd in education worth it than phd in accounting

A:  Because you don’t do them on your own!  Now pick up that wet towel off the floor!

Q:  what are the works can professor do in vacation

A:  Research, class prep… even service.

Q:  why is last mortgage payment of year higher

A:  Yes.

Q:  im 18 how long will it take me to get a phd in business accounting

A:  Before or after you finish college with high grades?  Generally 4 years of college + any years of experience you want to do + 5 to 7 years of graduate school, give or take.  Good luck!

Q:  i need a nightjob to pay off debt help

A:  Sorry, that’s rough.  Craigslist?

Q:  does long unemployment hurt your job chances

A:  Yes, sorry again.  Keep trying.  I got nuthin’ here.

Q:  is it normal for a gifted child to sleep early

A:  If they’re sleepy or growing or getting a mental and/or physical workout.  It’s certainly not abnormal, even if gifted kids tend on average to need less sleep, that’s not always the case.

    I’m concerned about the academic skills of some of these prospective accounting Ph.D.’s. Does this perhaps explain Enron, Arthur Anderson, Lehman Brothers?

      Possibly! Though I don’t know how common phds in accounting are for non-academics. I think they’re generally small programs and a lot of schools don’t have them. So I wouldn’t be surprised at high school and college kids googling their questions– how else are they going to find out?

    Just a friendly FYI, the school district where I live (for I am not familiar with other school districts), a teacher’s salary is considerably higher if they have a PhD. In the first year, a teacher with a PhD makes ~35% more than one with just a BA. At the salary cap (for people with a certain number of years or more), a PhD makes ~39% more than a BA with the same number of years of experience.
