  1. I don't know, but if I got it, I was going to forward the email to my advisor myself with a happy gif at the top You should defniitely let them know!!
  2. Congrats sqxz!!! I remember you from the bio forums during my application cycle I'm so glad this worked out for you.
  3. I didn't even set an alarm or anything but woke up randomly a couple minutes ago, ha! No award, got HM. VG/VG, VG/E. (Not sure why I didn't get more than two reviews -- anyone know how this is decided?) I was really annoyed at first, largely since I think the comments are so dumb and unhelpful -- 2/3 of my VG ratings had only seemingly really positive comments ("X Y Z is really great!") and no apparent downsides. But after just a couple of minutes, I'm pretty over it. Gotta roll with the punches, right? And anyway, I definitely met people here who deserve it more and will benefit more. Congrats to all who got it. (:
  4. in case anyone missed it, we have an irc chat going. look for my post a couple pages back for instructions. <3 good luck to you all !
  5. thank you!!
  6. ok what episode is this gif from?? please tell me i need to know
  7. Not totally sure if this is legal, but it's the only platform for an easy chat room I know: I started an IRC chat. You can go to https://client02.chat.mibbit.com/ and enter your desired username under "Nick" and "#nsfgrfpwaiting" under channel, then hit connect. Might be fun to chill with each other until we all decide to sleep (or until the results come out)!
  8. I have netflix, a pot's worth of pasta, and a beer. Time is moving pretty fast for me.
  9. I'd still be up for a chat session! I won't be up til 6, but I usually go to bed around 1 ET, so I'm game until then. I've already started drinking an IPA or two - it'd be nice to chill and commiserate with people in the same boat (:
  10. Awesome, thanks for investigating Thank you for telling me this. How convenient -- I just bought some harpoon IPA this weekend...!
  11. Glad to see the consensus is that the received/reviewed thing is bunk. (Though I can't believe reddit would lie to me! So betrayed! /s) Who knows if it'll come out tonight, but I def can't stay up until 6 am... 3 was pushing it, but this is past my limit! Good luck to everyone, especially those of you with enough resolve to stay up waiting for it.
  12. Also, do we think that the changing of some people's application status from 'received' to 'reviewed' is indicative of winning? I'd be interested to know, as if so there will be a way for people in future years to tell reasonably far in advance...!
  13. But this maintenance is until 6 am -- doesn't the maintenance that precedes the award decisions usually only go until 3? The plot thickens......
  14. same.....
  15. Congrats pterosaur!!!!
