I went on an interview about a month ago. During the interview, they informed me that they aspire to make a decision in 3 weeks, which was last week. Since I haven't heard a peep, I emailed the chair this week and they responded by indicating that letting applicants know is being held up by vacations and that they will get back to me when the dean gives them permission. I am assuming they are in negotiations with another candidate? I am not sure how to read that.
