I would strongly disagree with your last sentence.

There are many very dumb scientists.

I would like to agree with the last comment.

I'm a pharmacist, a girl, and a PhD research scientist.

There are plenty of dumb people in all three catagories. I have to deal with them all the time! The mind boggles as to how on earth they got into the positions they are in and how they get through life!

Scientists are made - by the course they enroll in.

Of course, they got good marks at school, but all that reflects is how well they performed in exams - not how intelligent they are.

How well you do in school is a function of many factors. The smartest student I knew in college flunked out because he just could not remember to come to class or do his homework, but if he had put in a quarter of the effort I did, he would have gotten straight As. In business I have seen many very smart people who could not accomplish anything because of they lacked the discipline to follow through. They would get bored with what they were suppose to be working on and they never were able to finish anything. Many of the most successful entrepreneurs in business were C students in school.

On average there is a co-relation between how well you do in school and how well you do in life, but it is a far from perfect co-relation.

Yeah - It's not that hard to get a PHD, just a lot of hard work.

At my college there was this attractive (yet very obnoxious) girl who was getting good grades and year after year was snatching a number of academic awards (monetary and honorary). She did it by studying hard, utilizing TAs for assisting with her homeworks, spending a lot of time in the language lab getting assistance rewriting her essays, and utilizing instructorss office hours for help with understanding the material. So she was "noticed" more, while much much smarter students who quietly did their work without much external assistance were overlooked. It really irked me, but demonstrated the power of being highly visible if not demonstrative.

So how you present yourself often is more important than how intelligent you are?

Veterinarian, Veterinary. Learn to spell. I am a vet student and yes, if you want to meet a lot of single lonely women, become a vet. There are 105 in my class, 85 are women, the men there are not single or NOT datable. Your chances are very high... except most girls have learned that dating a classmate isn't that smart of an idea. When you're around the same 105 people everyday for 4 years AND are dating one of your classmates, you lose the personal in personal life.
