    • Anybody else who has gotten neither a rejection nor a request for more materials? [Oct 29] --> update: I emailed the department about this and pretty quickly received a rejection so maybe it was some kind of website glitch but odd the rest of you haven't heard so who knows [Oct 30]

      • Did you hear via email? My interfolio account now has a section to upload a writing sample and reference letters but I didn't receive any communication directly... [Nov 2] X2. [Nov 2] Does Interfolio allow you to upload the documents? I just checked and I have the same request.  The writing sample prompt asks for a sample by November 1st, but I never received a notification/email communication and I don't have the option to upload a document.  It just requests a writing sample and letters with no "upload" button.  
      • [3 Nov] OP here - yeah, my interfolio account had those sections, but no buttons, same thing. I think this is probably just some weird feature where those sections were only enabled (with the "add" button) for people who were actually shortlisted. When I emailed the department I then got an automated interfolio-generated rejection, so I would guess this is a broader problem but you could always email them to find out too.
      • Nov. 3 - I also originally had my interfolio account receive the request without additional communication. When I emailed the department to ask, the request was withdrawn within a couple of hours with no other communication.
