What's wrong with attrition rates in philosophy being high?

Trevor Hedberg

Matt, I don't know if there's anything systematically wrong with attrition rates at PhD programs being high: PhDs don't just fall out the sky, after all. The point is that I don't think any philosophy graduate students wants to be an ABD dropout when they begin their graduate studies and that they have a good reason to try to avoid this fate if they can.
