The excitement of getting shortlisted

I started getting calls from universities that I have applied to for faculty positions.

As of now, I am pretty happy with what I got. To be more precise, I have first round calls from UCLA, London Business School, UT-Austin, INSEAD, U Minnesota, Texas A&M, U Southern California, Rochester, Indiana, Southern Methodist, Singapore Management, Washington State, U Illionois - Urbana C, Connecticut and U North Carolina .

I am still waiting to hear from a few more... Kellogg, Maryland, Michigan, UT Dallas and a few others.

Seems like exiciting times are ahead and it alos means there is a lot of work to do.

The road from my engineering college to IIM to Penn State and probably one of the schools in my interviewing list has been quite an edgy and logn one. The journey however is worth more than the actual destination.
