Points of bounded degree on varieties

Let $\mathbb{Q}^{alg}$ be the algebraic closure of the rationals. Given a point $P\in \mathbb{A}^n(\mathbb{Q}^{alg})$, $P = (a_1,\dots,a_n)$, we define the degree of $P$ to be the degree of the minimal field extension of $\mathbb{Q}$ over which $P$ is defined: $\text{deg}(P) = [\mathbb{Q}(a_1,\dots,a_n):\mathbb{Q}]$.

If a variety $X$ in $\mathbb{A}^n(\mathbb{Q}^{alg})$ has infinitely many points, must it have infinitely many points of bounded degree? That is, is there a positive integer $d$ such that $\{P\in X:\text{deg}(P)\leq d\}$ is infinite?

It seems like this should be an easy consequence of some more general theorem, but my knowledge is limited.

Hint: we may assume that $X$ is irreducible (take any one irreducible component of positive dimension). Apply Noether Normalization.
