This is wrong. Go to a college commencement some time. The last, and most prestigious award is the Ph.D. Even in the field of medicine, someone with a Ph.D is looked upon with extra respect. And yes, there are medical doctors who get Ph.Ds. They often become professors in medical schools.

The disadvantage is that "extra time" wouldn't be filled with the enjoyment of chess. If I enjoy chess more than most hobbies, then of course I would prefer the time to be spent on chess than on mere substitutes.
