Wanting to prefix “Dr” in front of your name may not be a substantial enough reason to enrol into a PhD programme. Maybe even the temptation for a better job may not be good enough in itself. A PhD is grilling, it calls for a lot of hard work , long grilling hours of work and the reward is a long wait away and perhaps too difficult to keep yourself motivated for such a long time. I have to say that other than intellect and skill, phasing through a PhD programme takes immense determination, stamina and a whole lot of discipline. To add to it, there is no guarantee that you would get a job by the end of the course.
