Hm, the wording is what is interesting here. My gut tells me the language used to describe a country's choice to the ECA isn't called a notification, they would call it a decision...we are the ones who receive "notifications". My gut also tells me that March 1 is very soon and judging by past calendars, the ECA will not have their business together by March 1. What country are you interviewing with? Thank you for sharing this potential info.
For others that have to interview, were countries prompt about scheduling?
