  1. No But information should be in your MYFAID portal since yesterday. I contacted Katherine and she told me the following "The World Bank decisions have been made and have been released into the MYFAID system."
  2. There are two process: the partnership (in which the school nominates you) and the preferred program (in which you apply by yourself). The deadline is April 11th, here is the link: http://www.worldbank.org/en/programs/scholarships#3
  3. Now that all decisions are out Program Applied To: (MPA, MPP, IR, etc.) and Schools Applied To: MPA/ID (HKS), MPA (SIPA & Wagner), MPP (Harris & Goldman), TPP (MIT), MIP (Stanford) Schools Admitted To: SIPA, Harris, Wagner, HKS, Goldman, Stanford Schools Rejected From: MIT (😥) Still Waiting: None Undergraduate institution: Top school in Mexico Undergraduate GPA: 8.5/10.0 Last 60 hours of Undergraduate GPA (if applicable): I believe it does not apply, but a uptrend in the last two years. Undergraduate Major: Economics GRE Quantitative Score: 168 (94%) GRE Verbal Score: 156 (76%) GRE AW Score: 4.0 (60%) Years Out of Undergrad (if applicable): 3.5 Years of Work Experience: 3.5 (Full-time) and 2 extra years (Part-Time) as an RA & TA. Describe Relevant Work Experience: 3.5 years working at the Central Bank Strength of SOP (be honest, describe the process, etc): I believe that the strengths of my SOP were: 1) I was too honest, 2) I work hard on my story, 3) I identify my weakness and address how the program would help me strengthen them. I start working on my SOP since October, so I had quite some time to think about how to tell my story and which stories to tell. In all my essays I described my future goals as specific as I could. I asked for feedback to my boss and to my significant other to identify if there were any holes in my story. Strength of LOR's (be honest, describe the process, etc): I asked my two supervisors and a university professor (who was one of my supervisors when I was an RA). Only for Stanford, I changed one of my supervisors for a former professor who is a Stanford alumnus. I did not read any of my letters, but I believe they were really strong. I chose only people who knew me well, who had good things to say about me, and who have some kind of experience writing LORs. Other: I was concerned about my average and my low verbal score in the GRE; however, as an international student I believe that the toefl and my SOPs relaxed the possible concern of my verbal score. About my average, I believe that I did many extracurricular activities during my undergraduate studies that make up for a not superb average. I had the opportunity to talk with at least one student from each of the programs I applied to (except MIT), which provided me with a bigger picture and a more clear path on how to do my application.
  4. In your MYFAID portal, on the left there's the bar "Menu" you click on it and if it does not say "Awards/Loan Eligibility" they cannot offer you any financial assistance.
  5. According to an email, those who have been selected will be notified by March 15.
  6. Hello, Congratulations on your acceptance! I was an early applicant and last week they sent me a "Scholarship Reconsideration" email in which they disclose all the information regarding how to negotiate the scholarship, I believe they will send you that email soon!
  7. I just received my rejection letter! So decisions are probably ready! Good luck everyone!
  8. Nothing! According to Ed's last e-mail, we should expect a reply in late February to mid-March, and according to last years threads, decisions are typically out on the first week of March! I guess we need to wait until then.
  9. Another applicant dying to know the results!
  10. I applied to HKS (but MPA-ID) and MIP as well!
  11. LETTERS ARE OUT! My application is now showing the official letter.
