Sorry if this is a stupid question, but if one of the employers you applied for had accepted or rejected you by now, you would have gotten an email right?

yeah you get a response either way as these things come out

so unrelated but I very recently sold out and took a non-PI job for this summer--is there any way I can take myself out of consideration before the people doing hiring come to a decision? I couldn't find anything on the website where I could do that prior to a decision

Click on the org under my activity and push "cancel request" should take care of it

Did you mean New Jersey? Was it for a clerk or atty position? I haven't gotten an answer from NH but did receive a ding from New Jersey today (and PDS earlier this week). These were all for full time jobs.

Not out for 3l/alumni. I guess that means they will likely release those real soon?

Got an email that I was accepted for an interview but went to the site and my task list is empty. Isn't that where you're supposed to schedule interviews?
