Since it’s summer and we’re shaking up the Sunday schedule a little bit, it seemed like the right time to address a few of the search terms that lead to Post Academic. What follows is a list of search queries, followed with our responses.

“school bans stupid things”: The Man can get you down, can’t he? If you aren’t liking The Man in college, wait until you get to the Hamster World and he forgets to stock the vending machine or, even worse, pay you on time.

“leopold bloom is annoying”: Post Academic isn’t taking any sides on the greatness of certain literary characters, but those are fighting words to many professors. How did you wind up here?

“sexy checklist”: Boy, do I regret naming a post “Making Checklists Sexy.” I extend my deepest apologies to Atul Gawande.

“courteous rejection letter sample”: If you are a member of a search committee who is trying to be kind to the people who didn’t get the job, good for you and your professionalism! Arnold can help you with the ever-popular “Rejection Letter Do’s and Don’ts.”

“how academia messes with your mind”: Read the whole “Surviving Grad School” section. It’s not easy. We’re here for you, friend.

“why do people bloat after death?”: This is not our field. HowStuffWorks can handle it from here.
