I got an email saying thank you for submitting and that they would be in touch later. I got it at 6:48am CST (7:48am EST) today (1/22/18)

Ahhh that doesn't reassure me at all. I sent an email asking them to confirm if they got my questionnaire and they haven't responded (admittedly I sent it after the end of the business day there ~1pm CST).

I'm sure you're fine :) I sent my survey in last week (before the weekend), so maybe they just saw it sooner and therefore responded sooner? Don't stress, nowadays email doesn't tend to get lost, so as long as you submitted it before Sunday you should be good. :)

Good point. I sent mine in midday on Sunday so it makes sense they would respond to you first. I think I am just needlessly finding more things to be worried about...

First time poster and also anxiously awaiting news like all of you!

Does anyone have information on how the academic degree grant Fulbrights work? I got accepted to my program and they require that I put in a deposit for a placeholder within the next month. However, doing the program largely relies a lot on whether or not I receive the Fulbright as I wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise. Anyone else in this situation or has been in this situation? 

Thank you and may the odds be in your favor! :)

I’m in the same boat! I was accepted into the University program mid-January. Curiously, my fulbright application says it was updated 13 days ago, which is one day after I was accepted to the University. I assume Fulbright needs to make sure I was accepted into the program either way? 

Thankfully, my deposit isn’t due until April. I think by April we’ll know for sure if we’re finalists. 

Like all of you, I’m waiting anxiously to hear about initial notifications!

Hi guys!

Another Czech Semi-finalist here! I got an email earlier today that my questionnaire had been received and they would contact me later (fingers crossed). 

Anyone know how long they take to decide the finalists? The wait seems endless...

It seems like in the previous years, Czech ETA finalists were notified in mid to late March. I really hope we all hear back about semi-finalist notifications soon!

I'm worried it might be later this year because they have more info to go over with the questionnaire. When I emailed with a question about what time the questionnaire was due, though, they mentioned that they were going to start reviewing on Monday (1/22). If they're that on top of things that might indicate they'll be done reviewing early-ish.
