To the folks interviewing for Loyola (phone/campus)- are you all Catholic? Just curious as to how much that type of characteristic is weighted in applications to religious schools.

I did not apply there this year but phone interviewed last year (Chicago, that is—the various campuses are unrelated to each other). I am not Catholic, and although I didn't get an on campus interview, I'm 100% sure that my non-Catholicism did not play a role in that. They did not even ask my religion.
I had a phone interview with the Maryland campus. They had a prepared statement at the end of the interview saying that they were an EEO employer and made it very explicit that you did not have to be Catholic. After the interview, they asked for a written statement on how the Jesuit Core Values and Mission inform your teaching/research/service.
Generally speaking your religion won't play a part in getting the job / interview unless the school is *very* religious (e.g. they request a statement of faith, or how you will incorporate christ-focus in psychology.)
