Full professors do, but associates and adjuncts make much less. The road to $100k is not easy.

How much do Associate professors make at private universities?

The bigger you are in your field, the more likely you are to have outside money, from startups and consulting. You also should consider that academics get excellent health benefits - but yeah, it's not a great way to make money, and definately not a quick way to make money.

Alot of profs make more $$ on the books they write than on their yearly salary.....

depends on the field!! Many subjects either 1)dont pay well (things like dance, etc.) or 2) extremely competitive. You gotsta choose wisely. Oh and dont become a professor because of the salary- you should become a professor because you love your field- otherwise you won't be happy.

We have friends that are adjuncts or assc profs and they do pretty well. Lead their own research teams staffed with post docs... I have the impression that not all funding comes from the university but from research grants that they win.
But I agree, don't do it because of money, if you are just interested in how much money and not the teaching, find a way to make money at what you are interested in.
