  1. I am considering re-applying for 2018-2019. If I do I will be applying at-large. My current master's program will be completed by July 2017. This year I made it to the semi-finalist round for ETA Bulgaria but I was ultimately rejected. I'm not sure if I should stick with Bulgaria or apply for another CE/EE country for ETA.
  2. It is not a big name program, but I have been accepted into Buffalo's EDM program in Educational Culture, Policy, and Society!
  3. Thanks I'm sorry you got the dreaded NS as well.
  4. Thank you, that is very kind of you to say! Congrats. I hope you have a great year in Bulgaria.
  5. NS for Bulgaria. Good luck to all those still waiting to hear.
  6. Lol this is exactly how I'm feeling.
  7. Bulgaria did the same thing this year and I think it's to torture us.
  8. I'm so over this whole process. 😭
  9. Eating everything in sight has been my go-to strategy this week
  10. Fingers crossed! I feel like now there's no time frame now though. Hopefully we find out soon! I wonder if they will wait until Friday to announce the ETA spots since Bulgaria has favored Fridays the last four years.
  11. It's honestly worse that they split notifications this year because now the spreadsheet feels kind of useless. I just thought we'd have to survive until our country notified.
  12. Darn, I was really hoping Bulgaria ETA decisions would go out this afternoon since the research notifications went out this morning. Hopefully we don't have to wait until next Friday or longer. @edon16 @Jess2323 - Are you guys feeling a little stir crazy too?
  13. Fingers crossed!
  14. Congrats and good luck with your research! Hopefully ETA notifications come out today as well.
  15. Hopefully tomorrow will be jam-packed with notifications!
