  1. Got honorable mention again Is there any significance to the first, second, and third reviewer? Both times it seems as if the third reviewer has included a statement as to whether or not I should receive the reward.
  2. I just found out that I reported some data incorrectly in my proposal. The whole proposal is built upon this data. Is there anyway to contact them to fix it??
  3. I figured I'd start a thread for this application cycle. I heard from a couple rec writers that the recommendation form is quite labor intensive. Anyways, good luck to everyone that applied!
  4. I suppose having to decide between two schools is a great problem to have, but I would really love any suggestions or advice to help make this decision. In terms of the big factors, both schools are pretty equal. I have full funding at both schools. Cornell pays ~$5,000 more, but I think both stipends are livable. Both schools have a few professors whose research interest me and both schools are highly ranked. I believe GT BioE is #2 whereas Cornell ME is top 10. Both schools also have qual pass rates of ~95%. Given these factors, I don't think I can go wrong with either school. In t

    Yup, that's what happened to me. They still haven't sent out the emails, so maybe they're still updating awards for people? Either way, not looking good...

    By pattern, do you mean that people who received the award could log in early?

    I haven't heard of people being able to log in early. I couldn't log in. Were you able to? Not knowing when results will come out (could be today!) is really killing me...

    From their FB page! "***2016 AWARD NOTIFICATION UPDATE*** The NDSEG Program Team expects awards to be issued later this week. Please keep an eye out on our social media pages (Facebook/Twitter) as well as your e-mail inboxes for more information! Notifications will be issued to the e-mail address associated with your 2016 NDSEG Digital Application."
  12. I am currently an undergrad and am honored to have received an HM. Do you guys think I should apply next year or wait until my 2nd year as a grad student? I am concerned that I will have only spent a month or two with my advisor (might still even be in rotations!) before the GRFP is due. Is it okay to submit the same research proposal even if my research in grad school is different? My reviewers seemed to like it and only suggested minor edits.

    How competitive is the NDSEG compared to the GRFP? I've heard a lot of people say the NDSEG was more competitive, but acceptance rates seem comparable.
  14. I tried to have a good night's rest, but my body clock woke me up at 6 AM sharp. Got an honorable mention! I have never been so excited yet disappointed in my life. VG/G E/VG E/VG.
  15. Don't do it! Not worth the stress!
