  1. Best of luck to you all Are they not picking up the phone when you call?
  2. Yes, no one who was active here on GradCafe had that issue last year that I can recall. Everyone heard back approximately at the same time (I believe it was mid-April).
  3. We know that we had 4 people last year because our school director told us that's how many they have right now-- and the 2 out of 6 is just from our group chat, so nothing that intense lol I don't know the Stanford person myself, just heard from the grapevine from my professor, so I don't have that many details. Just know she thought that person was a strong candidate and was surprised they did not get the fellowship
  4. 1. Only 2 out of 6 people from my program were accepted, vs. last year when 4 were accepted 2. This thread seems to have more rejections and waitlists than past years' threads (didn't count, just eyeballing) 3. The other student from my past uni was rejected, and they're by all accounts really bright. Part of their program will be at Stanford and they have a full ride for it
  5. Anecdotally, my impression is this year's application was extremely competitive. Like, unusually so. I wonder if they're considering last year's deferred applicants as part of this year's cohort.
  6. May 2-- but some other people in my program who are alternates said they might not hear back as late as September in some cases according to what they were told
  7. Accepted for China, but they say most likely will need to be rerouted to Taiwan
  8. Probably not, deferrals were not allowed last year (at least in the beginning-- not sure if things ended up changing as covid got more serious)
  9. If last year after covid had already started they managed April 15, I'm hoping they can do it again now that most people's work-from-home flow has improved
  10. Also, 41% acceptance rate for Fellows last year, pretty good!
  11. Interesting, looks like ALL of the 2019-2020 Boren Fellows in Mandarin went to Taiwan instead of China. I'm guessing that'll be necessary for us too
  12. lol! yes haha I must've zoned in on the "20" and checked April 20, 2020. My bad :')
  13. Two points isn't a trend, but I checked and both of those days were Mondays. If they usually send out results on Mondays, we might be looking at either April 12 or April 17
  14. I already deferred a year, I was supposed to start Fall 2020, but yeah otherwise that would probably be the way forward. We'll see! No use stressing about future things yet haha
  15. Joined the sub, thanks for the link! I'm a little worried that my country of choice (China) won't pan out even if I receive the award because of the travel advisory currently in place. I heard some students were trying to do China programs virtually from Taiwan to get them to count for Boren but not sure if that was successful or not. In a perfect world, it'd be nice to stay at home in the US and save money while receiving Boren funds to do my China-based program online. Probably not allowed, though.
