Academic mail

Below is a picture of the mail that an Assistant Professor is likely to receive in one year. This mail excludes random fliers and junk mail that our administrative assistant so deftly edited out of the pile.


And this is the mail after it has been opened or sorted.


Clockwise from the top, the piles represent:
journals, newsletters, and other subscriptions (excluding GT newsletters);
box of reprints of a published article;
fliers and catalogues from book publishers;
(mostly) unsolicited textbook samples; and
real mail (1/2 of which are official copies of grant proposals I submitted during the last year).

Yes, but you did not take it with La Profesora Abstraida. And the econ versions of stats tend to be more theoretical than applied in comparison to poli sci.
