Are SC's dragging their feet?

"Question for those who were on the market last year: judging from wiki activity, calls, emails, whatever, do things seem to be going slower this year than last?"

Thoughts? Also, anybody care to brag about the number of interviews they've already got scheduled?

I don't think it's much different from last year. The next five days will be very active.

I'll brag: zero interviews! But I don't need any - last year I landed a job.

If anything, they're a bit faster. Last year I had one by this time (out of 6 total). This year I have 4 (three calls yesterday afternoon).

I've got one. But I have no frame of reference.

Hey 7:16, are those interviews with Columbia, Central Mich, and Saint Vincent?

Our Sc - most of the dept, really -is a bit ahead this year. This, despite being nearly overwhelmed with very good applications. (Don't forget, it's the end of the semester for us, too, with all that entails.)

To provide a modicum of good news: we have also been approved to do a VAP for next year which we will be posting asap. It is not the TT we expected, as that line is frozen, but it is something.

Hang in there, folks.
