I have Acrobat 7 and had not realized you can save as word document.  
So I tried it with a pdf generated through pdflatex:

1. For some reason, the text in the word file has been rotated 90  
degrees (i.e. is is printed landscape,although page setup in Word  
says that the orientation is portrait). The graphs have not been  
2. The math did not survive.
3. The word document has 63 pages while the original pdf has 33  
(several pages in the word file are nearly empty).

In short, you should probably ask your secretary to make the  
conversion by hand...
