Oh, so you're on the market this year? Smart. I went the year before I finished my diss. I didn't end up getting anything, but I did way better in my interviews the next year due to that experience and I got an offer from my first choice school. And I wasn't half as prepared as you are--you've done way more than I did in grad school. You are going to blow them away. Good luck!

Yup, I'm officially on the market! At the moment, I'm kind of looking forward to this. Dad Pony has been telling me for a while that I am the competition, and I'm almost inclined to believe him (he is Dad Pony, after all, so you have to take what he says with a grain of salt). There are some good schools coming on the market, so I hope that at least I get some flyouts.

Not yet. But the season's just opened. Who knows what else there will be?

On the other hand, if you're thinking Northwestern, that's never going to happen. They don't actually want a Ph.D ethnomusicologist, and I don't want to work for them.

i just want you to stay in the chicago area because i am selfish that way. northwestern didn't occur to me, though some time you should tell me why they're off your list.

Staying in Chicago would mean a job opening up at one of the universities in the Chicago area. UIC and DePaul would be the most likely candidates, so focus your mental energies on them.

Sometime I will tell you about Northwestern. But not now. It's kind of complicated.
