This ad came up on my Internet radio today. Further proof that ETS is a total racket:
This just in: most people don't apply what they learn in college in the real world. How, then, does grad school offer any sort of "guarantee"? People would be better off in programs that teach them applicable skills--like MBA's, JD's, MD's or MA programs with real world applications (public policy, higher ed administration, etc.)

I'm generalizing, here, to a large degree. Nonetheless, as the recipient of one relatively worthless MA? It's no more "insurance" than successful job performance.
