My hope is that search committees that actually are in a position to make an offer this year are getting greedy. They know they're in a buyer's market so to speak, since there are so few jobs and so many applicants. So maybe they're shooting higher than they otherwise would. For example, perhaps a SLAC is willing to make an offer to an NYU or MIT grad when they otherwise wouldn't.
If this is happening, it may be that only a few people are getting all the offers. Bad news for the rest of us now, but when the super stars are all settled, maybe the schools who shot too high will come knocking.

Three and a half so far, although I've already been warned that the half will more than likely be canceled. 5 definitely canceled. 4 rejections. 25-30 listed on the wiki as having contacted people who aren't me. 20 left unaccounted for.
80 applications, 40 rejections (or, more accurately, a mixture of rejections and lack of department contact), 6 canceled searches, 5 golden rings, 3 interviews... and regarding said interviews, I have a question. I only recently got word of the interviews, and i would not have gone to the apa conference if i hadn't gotten them. thus, i ain't registered for the thing. nor can i register now, b/c the apa accepts no advance registration after 12/5, and currently the d**n office is closed... until the conference. so, does anyone know if i can still register (like, on-site on the 27th)?
