I hope this list makes sense as I was trying to summarize what people were saying in their emails and sometimes it wasn't clear if they meant pre or post doc fellwoships because they just used the tern "CFD fellows" in general) - List was updated on 2/19 by original poster Muhlenberg College: Said they would pass along my information to the appropiate department (once again idk if that is them being polite) - Update 3/4 They emailed me to say that they will not be hiring a fellow this year.

The program manager said that she couldn't give me updates on my status (not surprising) and that they have "their process" which includes sending out things in waves.
