Never a truer statement. More college grads (who never go to grad school) see the light. I have been through both medical and graduate school, and I’ve consistently seen that the “higher” the degree the greater the “leftist quotient”. One can be too smart for their own good, and graduate school often attracts leftist slackers who never want to grow up.
I don’t think that graduate school attracts lefties, I think the screening process leaves lefties in command of the field.
To get to post graduate education you have to run a phalanx of leftie professors who give you lesser grades if you disagree with their leftist social views or Marxist agendas, and then you have to be accepted into a post graduate school and sponsored by a professor in the field you want to get your post graduate degree. Then your dissertation has to pass muster with the professors on the committee that reviews dissertations and pass your ‘orals’.
Looks like it’s probably pretty stacked against conservative leaning students.
