At one time, and possibly they still do, Columbia Pacific "University" 
offered a Ph.D. degree in any field and to anybody by mail for $2,800. We 
had an audiologist in Iowa buy the diploma maybe ten years ago. He used the 
designation, "Dr.," one time and then learned he could not use it. Most 
states have a provision written into their code (law) that nobody can use 
the title "Doctor" unless it has been approved by the legislature and placed 
into state law. Genuine "Doctors" don't seem to like others using this term 
unless it has been "earned."

I'm sure there are a number of audiologists anxious to see if $750 will buy 
a "Doctor" title. Sounds good to me.
