    I heard QFs will be announced Dec 25th. I'm not stating that as fact, just what I heard.

    HH

    What time did those emails arrive in your inbox?

    So when you say "GB never tips his hand" you mean that he doesn't post anything anywhere saying "Check your emails tomorrow/on Monday, etc."

    Which means that the email could come at any time now. Like, in five minutes, or Saturday afternoon, or August 2nd at 8am.

    Note to self: Give computer to friend/therapist/valet until 8/2 so that I can't manically check email like an OCD nutbag.
    There will be thousands of us ready to be sent to the funny farm over the next week or so!

I did see a Nicholl post that said, because of the extra read, things were taking longer than they had anticipated. But, again, no mention of late QF announcements. And there was one poster who posted about an August 4 announcement, and other posters assumed this was a typo. The talk might have stemmed from this post.
    I too remembered seeing the Aug. 4th date on FB, but did not think it was a type-o. Figured the announcement might be delayed due to the double reads this year. But I also heard Greg likes to be earlier than the possible announcement date.. either way, it's gonna be a long weekend.

    I'm not sure that "trust" ever entered my thinking on this subject. I can see posts where users ask "When are we being notified?" but can't see if you or other Nicholl folks have responded to their direct questions. Someone on this thread, about four posts back, mentioned there might be a delay; I thought perhaps he or she got that idea from the post responses on FB that I can't see.

    Just FYI, FB does allow non-users to see the Nicholl page and people's posts, but it doesn't let them see responses to the posts, if you follow.

    I think that's why I was unaware of the possible delay in announcements that someone mentioned in the thread.
    Let me see if I understand: you can see all the Nicholl posts and comments in which there is no mention of a delay. You cannot see other posts, which apparently mention a possible delay.

    Should you trust the Nicholl posts and comments you can see or the comments by others you cannot see?

    Pretty sure anyone can see all of the Nicholl status updates on our Facebook page without having a FB account. You just have to visit -

    http://www.facebook.com/NichollFellowships -

    and you too can be part all the fun (well, you can't post).

    No tipping thus far and we wish there was more tippling.

    With a record number of entries, I wouldn't be surprised.

    Site says late July, but there's a lot of back and forth on Facebook which I'm not privy to (seeing as I'm not on FB). I'm wondering if people's direct timetable questions are being answered there.

    Good luck to everyone! Very exciting for those of us with our work at stake, no?

    Re: Nicholl Fellowship 2012 open for submissions

    According to my email archives, the Nicholl notifications for the past two years kinda went as follows:

    2011 - July 29th
    2010 - July 22nd

    Prior to 2010, notification might have been primarily via snail mail. I guess it could be any day now, but my money's on early next week sometime.
