  • Sincere congrats to those with interviews.  As one of those who received a request for additional materials, I am curious as to whether those who noted here their rejection received a formal notice; I've heard nothing.  
  • Any news about campus visits? Would like to know if I'm out of the running. (1/30)
  • I also interviewed with them and haven't heard anything. I've been hesitant to email for an update, since I'm expecting bad news after this much time has passed! (1/30)
  • I just finished my skype interview last week, and at that time, the committee told me that there was still one more person to interview before deliberating about campus visits. The suggested thier time line is early February for contacting people. (1/30)
  • Nothing yet? (2/12)
  • Does anyone know how many campus visits there were, and if an offer has been made? (3/24)
  • Not sure on either front, but can say I'm still waiting, too! (3/24) **Thank you and good luck!**
  • At this point, I'm assuming that they've made an offer - probably to someone who doesn't post on the wiki! Any word of mouth?
  • Just learned that they've filled the position.
