  1. Just do your best. You have a small chance of succeeding (many apply; few win), but there is still a chance. I submitted 5 fellowship applications in my first two years of graduate school (including two rounds of NSFGRF) and was awarded one of them (not the NSFGRF).
  2. Neurobiology graduate student here. You don't necessarily need to take any neurobiology classes and for most programs there aren't really any prereqs.
  3. Well you don't want to be in an underfunded lab anyway.
  4. Sigh. VG/VG, VG/VG, VG/E. Nothing. All reviews are glowing with praise. At least there's that! This was my second and last year applying (I'll no longer be eligible). Last year I got VG/G, G/VG, G/G. Look how much I improved! Haha.
  5. Yes, and preparing the application last year was a helpful exercise even though I didn't even get HM. And if I don't get the award again this year (and I probably won't), at least I have some good practice articulating the impacts of my research. No regrets... But it would be nice to get an award.
  6. I'd just like to point out that I personally don't recommend staying up to see the results. I was tired AND unhappy the next day last year.
  7. "Awarded," "Honorable Mention," or "Not Recommended."
  8. The email, whether you receive the award or not, comes from info@nsfgrfp.org. EDIT: And you can actually see your status (and the list of awardees) on the site before you receive the email, but it's hard to get on with all the people trying to log on at once.
  9. FYI, I just logged into FastLane and it made me agree to terms and conditions and change my password.
  10. Actually, when I log in I do see this... Because it's the demo fellow on the FastLane Demonstration Site.
  11. http://whatshouldwecallgradschool.tumblr.com/post/113363209611/getting-ready-to-hear-back-from-grants
  12. I'm just trying not to get my hopes up, so I won't be as disappointed as I was last year if I don't get it again. I will be fine either way, I will be fine either way, I will be fine either way.
  13. Either way, we're only ~2 weeks away!
  14. Sorry.. meant to upvote, not downvote, and it won't let me change it!
