  1. 2nd year grad, not selected: VG/VG VG/VG G/G. Not surprised, glad I had the experience of putting together and submitting a complete app (still a little salty about the rule change screwing us 2nd-years over for this year) and glad that I made it to a third reviewer. I have full funding for the next 3 years, so I'm going to be just fine. I will say that I think I could've won it if I had proposed the project that I eventually decided on for my dissertation work. It's just a shame I hadn't figured it out sooner. Oh well, c'est la vie. Congrats to everyone who was selected!!
  2. At this point I'd say 80-20 in favor of coming out tonight/tomorrow. The maintenance has been a pretty good indicator in the past, and the Tuesday-Friday trend means it would be on the right day to remain true to that trend. However, there is the slight chance they could delay it again and this is another false alarm.
  3. Pretty sure it's just speculation at this point. It's the first thing that's happened re: GRFP on fastlane since the list went down, so we're assuming it has something to do with the release.
  4. I think they meant in a previous year, they'll send an email.
  5. I see where you're coming from, but I respectfully disagree. I don't think the number of BA's/BS's being given out is the problem, the problem exists within America's university system itself. Having a generally better-educated populace is a good thing. Forcing kids to go into crippling debt in order to achieve that is where the issue lies. Until the cost of education goes down, we're stuck in this circular logic where kids go to college to get a degree to pay off the debt obtained for getting their degree. We shouldn't be discouraging people from getting BA's and BS's, especially if we're discouraging people from following their passions. We should be making it easier for them to pursue these passions without the fear of falling into such severe debt that they never end up attaining their goal.
  6. If for some reason or another the bill didn't pass and they had to go through the process again, there's the slight chance that they could cut funds to NSF (unlikely, but this is politics we're talking about). That would have the potential to reduce the number of awards. Also just a theory, take it with a grain of salt.
  7. It just occurred to me: is it possible that NSF wanted to wait to release the winners until they knew for certain that the appropriations bill would pass?
  8. Well, at least we won't have another shutdown!
  9. Also, good news: the Senate passed the omnibus spending bill. Here's hoping it isn't vetoed.
  10. Yeah, they're just going to give their same canned response they give everyone. My guess is probably next Friday at this point.
  11. I think that's just their canned response they send out to anyone who asks about notification date. Same as on their website. Wouldn't read much into it.
  12. Easy Auto Refresh extension on Chrome
  13. That's what I was just about to say. I honestly don't think the changes affect us or the release date at all. According to the announcement: "The new centralized account management functionality is being released first to the Administrator, PI, AOR, Sponsored Project Officer (SPO), Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Coordinating Official and Financial Official, and Award Cash Management Service (ACM$) groups. NSF plans to eventually expand the new functionality in the future to additional groups including proposal reviewers, GRFP applicants, and NSF staff." The wording seems to indicate that GRFP applicants won't be included in this initial phase-in, so what would the purpose be of scheduling the release of our decisions in any sort of timeline that is influenced by these changes?
