Pungumuman penerimaan/penolakan dari universitas2 di Amerika biasanya paling cepat bulan Februari. Teman saya ada yang mendapatkan pengumuman keterima di awal Februari. Saya dan temen lain yang belum dapat pengumuman jadi galau karena sampai awal maret belum ada kabar. Maklum gak lucu kalau udah jadi candidate tapi tidak jadi berangkat gara-gara gak ada universitas yang mau menerima kita :D.
Alhamdulillah, tanggal 2 Maret 2012 saya mendapat kabar gembira
I am pleased to inform you that you have been admitted to the Master program at University of Illinois at Chicago. Congratulations! I have obtained the estimated first calendar year (CY) cost at this school which is within the Fulbright grant allocation after the school awarded you with a provisional tuition waiver.
IIE hasn’t told me yet whether there is any deadline at this school so you could still wait for any development to come.
Please let us know whether you would wait for the decision of the other schools or you would like to accept the offer of this school. We are also curios which university is your first priority. Please kindly rank the universities including the ones who are still pending.
