Is there a Doctor in the house?

I keep getting emails announcing that I’ve been selected for a PhD.  I wish they would send it to me because I’m actually having to study to complete my DMin at Fuller, not to mention pay the tuition.  Plus, the program at Fuller can take seven years, while my email offer appears to be immediate.

I guess the free PhD folks do have some takers, or else they wouldn’t be sending these emails.  I’m sure there’s a catch — there’s always a catch and most of the time it involves money.

So, here’s the question of the day —

If you could get a degree without studying, would you?  And would you call yourself ‘Doctor?’

Okay, let me hear from you because I bet you’ve gotten those emails, too.   A related topic is resume inflation, so fire away on that one, too, if you like.  Thanks.
