Graduate departments that accept more students than they have faculty retiring are guilty of using the lure of the PhD to fill unnecessary slots to boost their public profile. They use students for their own self aggrandizing purposes and they won’t admit it. And it’s wrong to promise careers in higher ed when these departments know full well that no positions are available. it’s immoral. It’s sin.
