Hi all, did I just shoot myself in the foot here?
Here's the situation. I was pretty sick this past week and contacted the search chair. She said that it was alright to reschedule my campus visit, but would consult with the department. Here's the word…I'm interviewing in a couple weeks. Glad to have tickets on Southwest and no change fees.
Do you think the department will see me in a dimmer light because I was sick? (E.G. weaker, flakey).
Truth is— I probably could have flown in and did my talk, but I wanted to be at my best— not coughing on faculty members.
