If you have to ask TLS, probably the phd.

I meant to say the PhD would be more difficult. It isn't like smart people can just show and get admitted to top Phd programs like they can for law school.

I like how you typed your GPA to the thousandths place.

PhD is much more difficult. Top PhD programs have acceptance rates in the 2-4% range. That's lower than YLS.

far harder to get into a phd program. but job prospects are even worse in academia. consider learning how to do something. if you're just graduating from college, go get a second degree in something useful. you could be in a good career by 24. nothing to sneeze at.

I was thisclose to getting a phd in the humanities. Don't get a phd in the humanities. Check out the chronicle of higher ed for info on this.
