Interesting. Most of the seniors I work with in policy have steered away from that. Interesting indeed.

Used to watch or listen to any game I could. Last year I watched 2 quarters(guess combining many games) total I think of football outside of PSU, in the college ranks. To compensate, I watched more NFL than I have in years(which was very little)

If you want to do research you need a PhD. If you want to make policy you don't need one. But if you were someone who wanted to work for Brookings/Heritage etc etc you need a PhD.
But policy PhD's are bogus, IMO. You're better off doing interdisciplinary.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
My father, and brother went to law school, and I have a sister who's a 1L right now.
My dad has worked 60-70 hours a week for as long as I can remember, but he's always loved what he has done so I've gotten a good impression from him. Law school and the practice of law have changed since his time though (he's 50), and class ranking is a lot bigger deal than it was back then. He used to skip class two times a week to go play golf with his buddies- something you absolutely cannot do anymore. My brother was a scholarship law student as well, but he's much more disciplined than I am in his study habits. He was the one who told me not to get married before law school ("I used to be able to spend all day at the library, and play golf on weekends. Now I have somebody calling me if I'm not home by 6 for dinner."), and that if I wanted to do as well as he did (great job with an oil company out of law school, on the fast track) that is the kind of schedule I have to keep. Probably more because I don't study as efficiently as he does.
I think my golf game would take an even bigger hit if I went to law school, because I'd watch football every Saturday instead of hitting the links. Tradeoffs are part of growing up though I guess.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
My field is kinda small and niche...we work on tech-based economic development. So a lot of the people in the field are:
1.) former entrepreneurs with PhDs;
2.) Academics turned Admins;
3.) MBAs; and/or,
4.) decreasingly bureaucrats.
So being a hybrid of each can be advantageous for future employment.
To add to what Left said, he is completely right. I am looking at a couple programs that I can do a hybrid "make it yourself type" degree.
