Yes, I feel that a Saturday or Sunday phone call would be a surprise. It just doesn't seem that pressing to have to call someone on the weekend - and as far as 50 phone calls being a lot, not really...they just read 1200 applications, and now somehow 50 3 minute phone calls is a lot? Hardly.

And it seems that the Iowa phone call came yesterday (Friday) whereas the Cornell phone call for poetry came today (Saturday).
All I can say is that I've been on this board for three years and I've seen people report phone calls on Saturdays, Sundays, and unexpected times during the day and night on weekddays.
It's the middle of Iowa's historical notification period. Why would we have any reason to believe that people are out there posting fakes? Iowa has some 50 people to contact over the next few days. If they need to use some time on Saturday and Sunday to fit everybody in, is that such a big surprise?
