Phd entails research, not merely course work. If you are willing to work hard, there is no reason you should be unable to do it. (Note: Smart, or young, is not a necessary condition.)Quote- how do I go about finding a universe of universities - just googling blindly feels wrong.This is the normal procedure: Read some research on your own, find out what interests you, talk to the authors, ask someone to supervise you part/full time, apply there (which includes writing GRE, sending the old transcripts, writing comprehensive subject exams and/or attending a few to several classes), see if the professors you wanted to work with are still around, write a paper or two with them. Lather, rinse and repeat, until your committee members think you're clean.It's a fun 3-4 years of relaxed contemplation if you do it full time, and a hectic 4-6 years if you try to do it part time!
