Grober here.

I feel I've been misrepresented by Kevin's comments.  I did not say assert
that "going straight into a Ph.D. program, instead of doing a master's, is
a better strategy
for obtaining a research position..."

what I wrote was "If you want an ACADEMIC POSITION, you are much better off
going straight from your Bachelors into a PhD program.

I went on to say that getting a master's can be a good stepping stone
towards a PhD, but that most top notch (in the Grossman sense) programs do
not care for their MS students the way they do for their PhD students
(especially wrt financial support).  I do not support this policy, but have
seen it many academic institutions.

Cheers - MG
