Whoa!! It feels too real with people being notified.

Congrats to all who are finalists and may the Fulbright Comission of your country find more funds to make alternates into finalists! 💖

I'm new here but I've been reading posts for a few weeks! Also a semifinalist for the Spain ETA and wondering why the research grants were announced but not the ETAs! Good luck everyone, I'm glad J found this forum cuz I am freaking out waiting like you all 😊

Probably they just got finished with those sooner, since there are so many fewer research grants. I'm so tempted to call and ask when the ETA awards will be announced

Awesome! Let me know if you do! I listed a preference for Galicia (I've studied Galician!), where are you hoping for placement if you become a finalist?? 

I hope we both get it!

I've never been so antsy for a work week/Monday to come around. I think I'll put in a few more residency applications to pass the time...

Study/Research in the U.K. (University of Reading)! This is my 3rd year applying, so I'm hoping the U.K. sends out their notifications next week. :)🤞🏼

Research in Poland! I have been unable to keep myself from believing that I will get it, thus daydreaming about all the things I will do when over there! >< A rejection would be devastating at this point :/ 

Here's to the power of positive thinking!! :)

Whew, that is actually a huge relief to hear. I had seen a couple of (unsubstantiated) posts either earlier in this thread or last year's that sometimes interviews don't happen but aren't an ominous indication of non-recommendation, but hearing it confirmed definitely helps me breathe a bit more. I'm still hoping to hear news of an interview, but I suppose if one never comes to pass and it all turns out well in the end, I can't complain! 

Best of luck to you, btw. What is the focus of your project/study?

I am applying an MA in Music Education from the Institute of Education at UCL. My focus is alternative practices in English music classrooms. The British system of music education is very holistic and comprehensive, allowing students to study modern popular music, as opposed to the US system which tends to be very focused on ensemble performances. What are you hoping to study/research?

Also best of luck to you!! :)

I think we will be lucky if we find out this week. I think it might be more likely that we find out early the next week (starting with the 20th). Fingers crossed for this week though! I can't go on this way! 

P.S. How is Outlander going? :)

Oh my goodness the anxiety! Why do you think so, though?

And oh my goodness the first book was so good! I got the 2nd one and I've already read half of it!
