Finance Professors: Hot or Not?

A whiole back, I blogged on a research study by Felton, Koper, Mitchell and Stinson (sounds like a law firm, eh?) using RateMyProfessors evaluations to see whether the students' perceived hotness of their professors was related to their perceptions of professor quality. Crooked Timber (one of my favorite blogs) recently put this table up from the paper:


Just in case you didn't notice, Finance professors were rated as the hottest among the business disciplines (and accounting was rated least hot). So if you're deciding between a PhD in Finance and Accounting, if you want hotter colleagues, choose Finance, but if you want to look better by comparison, go with accounting.

But unfortunately, I definitely bring down the average. Ah well, back to the gym.

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours
and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
Awesome blog by the way!

Hello! I am aware this is notably off topic but I was wondering
which weblog platform are you currently using because of this site?
I’m getting fed up with WordPress because I’ve had difficulties with
hackers and I’m considering alternatives for another platform.
I would be great in the event that you could point me toward a great platform.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my
own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else encountering issues with your website. It appears as if some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously.
Cheers

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly
appreciated. Kudos
