Following up on my snark about high-achiever nannies, it occurred to me: isn't this one more item of evidence for the proposition that the bar to entry into the elite is getting ever higher? I wonder if the career services office at major grad schools now offers tips on nannyhood. Or, now that I think of it, at our law school.?
This insight came to me this morning while doing class prep at a student coffee shop. The next table was engaged in sober inquiry as to whether it made sense to do a second PhD.
