At this point, more than I would like to admit. I feel good about the recent one though. Fingers crossed.

Good luck! The EJW rep at my interview said that they got more than 400 applications this year. Last year they selected 77 fellows, this year hopefully more.

I keep getting the emails that I'm still in the running, but have yet to receive any interviews. Is there anyone else whose in the same situation? Still hoping I at least get an interview, but as we get further into February my hope is fading fast. :cry:

Huh? I didn't get a mass email in February. I interviewed in January with corporate sponsor and got an email saying that they decided to fund another project, but that I was still in the running to be scooped by other sponsors.

Same! I haven't gotten anything except for the mass update emails. No interest, no sponsors, nothing.

Ah, fewer than I thought.

Are you applying to other fellowship programs using the same project?

I have had a few emails for the different interviews but have never received the mass emails. I would like to know if you're selected is the news delivered phone call or email.

I figured after the rejection emails I have received that the email is the "kiss of death". I will stop obsessively checking for the email now and hope for the call.

I got the dings for previous interviews anywhere from 1-3 weeks following the interview. I am not sure what to think about this one. I am trying to stay positive and will it into existence but the wait is exhausting. Hopefully good news will be coming soon. Good luck to everyone interviewing and waiting.
