PhDs.org has many features from listing of related jobs, career resources, interviews of current and past doctoral students to the most comprehensive database of graduate programs found anywhere.

This allows potential students to devise their own criteria - a small program, for example, or one that has been successful in graduating a high proportion of women in fields where women are underrepresented.
