COGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! That is awesome.


"For non-academics this is a really big deal because there are horror stories/urban myths around of people getting denied tenure very late in the process."

By very late in the process, do you mean after the department level (i.e. college level), or at some higher administrative level? Should poeple who get positive votes at the department level breathe a sigh of relief?

Congratulations...and remember, tenure means you can celebrate any way YOU want to!

My feeling about this is that the ultimate granting of tenure is like a geometric process. The probability is (1-P) that you will be shot down at the departmental level, and P that you won't be. That follows at the next level, so that the probablity is P-squared that you make it past two levels.

So, the real problem is the number of levels. It's ungodly, but here there are 9 of them. Some of them are probably automatic, but that isn't an easy thing to assume until the process is over.
