I just this minute received a call from the senior vice president of the urban junior college. She called to tell me that they are interested in pursuing me to the next round. She asked if I had submitted my references, how my dissertation was coming along, and if my current job would be prepared for me to leave in the fall if it came to that.
Then she said they would contact me after calling my references.
I'm trying to stay calm and not get my hopes up.
I may be a professor come September!
(I am SO glad now that I followed through with that thank you letter!)
