I am dying to know the decision. My research grant consists of enrolling to a grad school and I am currently strapped for time studying for an admissions test and would like to know whether or not to spend time applying to that graduate school.

Apologies if someone's answered this before, but what does the blue and red text mean on the spreadsheet?

Question - if I'm an alternate, do I have to be afraid that if they send me another email it will be to say "sorry everyone has accepted and we don't have a place for you" or is any news from this point safely assumed to be GOOD news?

(obsessively waiting/hoping)

Any news is good news. They simply won't contact you again if there is no more funding. (At least that was the case seven years ago.)

Red: already been notified this year. 

Green: notified by this date last year. 

Blue: ought to notify within the next week (based off of last year).

Hey I am an Indonesia ETA semi-finalist. this is my first time posting even though I have been reading through this forum for the last few weeks. 

Based on past years, Indonesia has notified either on Tuesday or Thursday, with the exception of one Friday. I hope we hear today! I am anxiously waiting

I'm hoping this Friday if it has to be a Friday!!!
