The Dubious Effects of a College Degree?

I read recently (in the March, 2005 issue of Real Simple--yes I know it's barely February, bear with me here, it's not my decision to pre-date magazines) that "In the dubious-benefits-of-a-college-eductation department: People who receive more than 45 pieces of mail a week are four times more likely to have a college degree than those receiving fewer than 12 " (Real Simple, 134).

I have a PhD. I wonder how many pieces of mail a week that's worth.

I don't *think* I get 45 pieces a week, but perhaps I should count, just to see how close to it I am.

Anyone else want to count mail with me?
