"Students awarded scholarship funds must maintain full-time status and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.4 for continuance of funding."

Not gonna lie that's a little scary, especially since I read some of the professors at HNC grade quasi-arbitrarily-- on top of the program being in a foreign language. Hrm.

Oof. That is terrifying honestly. Most programs only ask that you keep a 3.0 right?

I just got my scholarship e-mail too. Got 10k for HNC, 20k for the first year in DC, and 10k for the final semester in DC. Not bad at all... that's really exciting, I might be able to not have crushin

Yeah March 6 sounds like it's far away for some reason... it's next Friday!

My Financial aid is out for DC! 46K a year...I'm losing it. GW offered me nothing, and I spent last weekend thinking I had dramatically overestimated my chances...

That's why I went for the Tsinghua program instead. I love the HNC, but my Mandarin definitely isn't good enough to take technical classes not taught in English. If you feel confident in your ability, don't let that that condition stop you!

It will definitely be a challenge taking classes in Chinese but I think after that year of hard work, my Chinese will be amazing haha

I'm in! MA in DC. I haven't seen any emails regarding funding so I'm assuming I won't be getting any. I can't believe I wen't 4/4 with applications & acceptances. My head is spinning. lol.

Which other programs did you apply/get in? Do you already know where you'll go?

I applied to American SIS, GWU Elliott School, Georgetown MSFS, and SAIS. I think I'm going to go with Georgetown, as it was my top choice. 🙂

I'm not confident in my ability at all! I legitimately guessed or made reasonably calculated wild assumptions on like 80% of the STAMP test questions lol. I don't think I was supposed to have passed rofl

I'm going to have to do an immersion program this summer if SAIS ends up being the school I choose, I think. Need to factor that into the cost calculations.

Does everyone get their temporary iD immediately after logging in with the SIS ID? Can't access the FinAid page even after following the steps in their PDF

My situation was pretty unique so I'm going to post in the results page when all of my schools get back to me, but for now:

3.75 double major - economics, international studies

GRE: 170V 168Q 5.5 AW

1 year (full-time post grad) work experience - US military.

Hope that helps.

I got the status update/acceptance email for the MA program and then the aid email two and a half hours later. So everybody worrying about the aid, I think they're still in the process of sending those notices out. 

I got $27k a year.

Regarding this, I'm pretty sure it's for both years; most of these programs phrase it as just first year but state that it's renewable in small print somewhere. Can anyone else confirm about SAIS in particular?

Ok, update. I did get an aid offer, but it's not much considering cost of attendance. $16,000, but if I'm reading it right, it's only for the first year.

Very impressive. You more than deserve that funding!

I also got $27,000 and MSFS offered $31,881 so I guess that's MSFS for me! Also got full tuition from Yale which is amazing but also it's not a major IR school so lots of decisions ahead! Although the most expensive program (Conflict Res at Georgetown) is still where my heart is at
