  1. Hey! I'm also a Korea ETA finalist! There is the Fulbright Grant Applicants group with current Fulbrighters, Fulbright finalists, applicants, etc. I asked on that group if there was a Korea ETA 2017-2018 group yet or if I should make one, and a girl who is a current Korea ETA said that the KAEC will make an official group for us soon - maybe waiting for medical clearances and all that!
  2. omg this was happening to me so bad before i found out! ..and of course, the one time i was at a movie theater and couldn't check my phone and stress is when i received my notification lol.. hang in there!
  3. IM GOING TO KOREA ETA AND IM CRYING OMG
  4. @theanine @lightaheadi @Tera all of you guys seem so amazing 😭😭 here's to hoping our dreams come true and we all get to go to Korea!!
  5. That sounds so amazing! Did you study Korean studies in undergrad?? I'm crossing my fingers for you and hoping that you get it - would be awesome to see someone so passionate get this degree and put it to use!
  6. I applied for Korea ETA. I'm also pursuing an opportunity to volunteer with the Community Chest of Korea and other nonprofits hoping to learn and study more about Autism Spectrum Disorder in Korea. I have a brother with ASD and have spent a lot of time tutoring ASD children and worked with nonprofit groups in my state to write policy for ASD initiatives, so I would really love a chance to learn more about what the country with the highest ASD prevalence but also one of the highest stigmas against ASD and mental health disorders are doing for their citizens. If I don't get the Fulbright, I will probably apply to teach with EPIK, but my side project might be totally lost. I studied abroad in Korea in 2014, and I just really really need to go back γ… γ… 
  7. Not going to lie, this kind of made me tear up a little bit. You guys are all so amazing and brilliant - couldn't be more thankful to embark on this journey with you! Cheers, indeed! Congrats to everyone who has been selected - and press on to all those who are alternates or non-selects, you are rock stars
  8. OMG THIS JUST GOT MY HOPES UP EVEN MORE! I have no self control - pls hurry Korea.
  9. @gorilla_queen @lightaheadi I honestly need to stop giving myself hope each morning that "today will be the day!" A bottle of wine sounds necessary.
  10. Maybe they're working on sending a big announcement or many announcements πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ
  11. Seriously though! Like I'm seriously so happy for y'all getting notified all around the world and I've lived vicariously through you these past few weeks but COME ON EAST-ASIA PACIFIC!
  12. Congrats!! πŸŽ‰ πŸ‡²πŸ‡½
  13. I really really really hope we hear today~~ My anxious heart can't take it anymore ToT
