From Prison to PhD

High School ・Political Science ・MLA

The paper is a critical review of an essay written in the New York Times and created for distribution by the Marshall Team, 'From Jail to Ph.D.: The Rebirth and Rejection of Michelle Jones.' The article is about Michelle Jones, a convicted inmate who was released from jail a month before the article was written. For more than twenty years, she was in prison. However, she earned her Ph.D. from the University of New York one day after her release. The author seeks to show in the essay that she faces exclusion by the elite as well as she was redeemed from jail by her research.


The point and arguments of the author are validated since he or she used appropriate methods of collection of the information. The organization gained the data from internal emails and memos, which were related to the application by Ms. Jones. Also, they interviewed eight administrators and professors who took part in reviewing it. The author builds a logical argument, and he or she managed to interpret the evidence in such a way that the reader would see that Michelle Jones was being rejected by some of the professors while others were in support of her application and her work. They managed to prove that the education system came as a redemption since she was released from serving her full sentence so that she can pursue her career.


I completely agree with the author that Michelle Jones is redeemed and rejected at the same time. Ms. Jones was supposed to serve a jail term of fifty years, but she only served twenty because of her good behavior, and she was given a chance to pursue her career. To my opinion, it was one of the best redemption stories. On the other hand, most of the professors at Harvard rejected her on the basis that she could not cope with the pressure from the elites.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
