      • [17 Dec] Why would some applicants receive neither an interview nor a rejection email? This makes no sense to me.
      • [17 Dec] Also can confirm not having heard anything. It's unfortunate that search committees often operate this way.
      • [17 Dec] From what I've heard about similar situations: if they reject an application in their HR system, they can never return to that application. They made a long list (~40 people) and rejected all the rest. They then made a short list (~12 people) for interviews. They don't want to reject the remaining 28 because they want to be able to return to them in the very unlikely event that all 12 people they interview don't work out. But that never happens.
