Heh, a friend just told me about this thread. Unfortunately, I had some mathematical errors in my budget so I heard from them in March. Embarassing!

I hear that might be a good sign. Personally I haven't had any email about my budget unfortunately.

Where is everyone?? Please come spread info around! Specifically, anyone else get a budget email that didn't have math errors?

Yeah, so it looks like they started letting folks know last year on April 6th and the year before it was the 12th. I know these dates are pretty meaningless, except as general guidelines for the notification window, but the sooner the better - esp. for folks who have to resubmit! I think I might disable my internet for large chunks of time today...and hide my iphone...maybe I should just call it a day already go back to sleep :)

Good luck, everyone!

what started last night? notifications of those who recieved a grant?

Nono! I unfortunately started checking my email constantly the night before at midnight. I haven't heard of any notifications good or bad yet.

I received a request for budget information this morning. I can think of three ways to interpret it (from best to worst):

(1) WG is ready to fund you, but it wants to know if it can lay some of the cost to other organizations.

(2) WG has narrowed down their candidates a second time. While not all of us in this smaller group will receive funding, WG would like additional information from us.

(3) WG send this email to everyone who made it past the preliminary review they completed (and notified us about) several months ago. The email indicates nothing about our rank among the second round group.

Can anyone get some intel about this from other people in their program?

Gifthorse's #3 option isn't possible - I made it to the second round in January but didn't get the email today. I guess their #1 and #2 are possible.

Trying to decide whether to give up hope now. Has anyone ever received a W-G after NOT getting this budget update email? If I knew I should give up now then at least I could get on with my life and stop stressing...

Congrats to everyone who got the WG! I was not one of the lucky few, but I'm happy with the feedback I received and am crossing my fingers for better luck next time :)
