Congratulations! It sounds like you had a good, if exhausting, experience interviewing. I'm looking forward to hearing stories from your new job! Congrats again!

Yay!!!!

I was secretly hoping you were one of the candidates for our stats positions, but since we're just wrapping interviews still ... oh well.

So happy for you. Celebrate!
