Maybe we can worry together, and share useful tips, of what we know and what we don't know.

Great topic btw, thanks for it.
A question maybe: How much do you think average Fulbright stipend will be? I know it mostly depends on the State you will be living but any idea? Let's say New York, Florida and Arizona?

@Dea, I wish you good luck with the upcoming results. I know they have allocated a certain budget for every student but they have told us that if some Fulbrighters are offered extra scholarship or less tuition (like in-state tuition), they use the rest of the budget to help the others. I remember something like that. You may ask to the commission in Indonesia and see if it is same there. Worth a try!
@BruceWayne24 thanks for the heads up! $21.500 for 10 months I guess.
Where are the other foreign Fulbrighters? Show up and say "Hi"

So I'm sitting here waiting to hear from them, basically going nuts.
But I will say this, we're all are very lucky for this opportunity. I've said before that it feels like winning the lottery. With similar odds.

So, are fulbright grantees notified when other applicants are? Or do unis give early decisions for fulbrighters?
I don't think they give early decisions for fulbrighters although there may be rare exceptions. On the contrary, fulbrighters usually learn later because we can't simply log in to univ. account and check application status or colleges will not send direct mails to us. IIE gets the news first, they forward the result to Fulbright representative in your country and they let you know as soon as possible
