"There is nothing a PhD can do that a B.S. cannot."
 
 
Come on. That is definitely untrue. Any PhD worth his/her salt will have a much greater ability to write in scientific terms, as well as understand scientific writing than a BS. I would bet this holds true with the exception of the most exceptional BS students. 4-5 years are not wasted on a PhD. That is a ridiculous statement.

I guess one of the major differences between BS and PhD is whether s/he is able to think independently or not.  Well, there are people who are independent thinkers regardless of their degree.  But we stand in general.

Oh yeah, you need to go back to look up your reference book while a PhD does not need to. that is the difference between a PhD and a BS. Face it, that is what the client thinking. Remember patent law attorney/agents are service provider. therefore if you can provide a quality service with more efficinecy, you are hired by the client. Of course if you think your looking back to the reference add more into your billable hours, you are dead wrong!

Maybe you should specify who your posts are directed towards. Also, I believe it would be "didn't." If you are going to post something that ridicules the grammar of others, I would check the grammar of the sentence doing so. Grin
