Some of these individuals have ego issues and it makes me wonder if they did it just to get called Doctor. So today, when you get classes that are collectively more competitive and intelligent than the previous year, it becomes difficult to control the mass when they speak up about a faculty member's incompetence; which is why you see them using threats as a means to control the situation. It's pathetic and it makes me curious as to why over half the individuals we interviewed this year were much much older than our class. These are things I've seen at my school; it's how I've interpreted them and by no means reflect other programs
Sounds school specific. Most of our faculty are from somewhere else.
