Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

I have just received the definitive rejection email.

This is the end for me guys. This was the last year I could apply since I will finish my master studies this year. I wont do a PhD, but maybe, I will do another master studies< course in the future.

Mr Airdawg, I dont feel so good...

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

They never cover all positions. There is a budget limit. I´m also quite stressed, but I don´t think I will be lucky on Monday. Lets hope I´m wrong.

PD: I found in twitter another selected, (for application nº 11). He was notified Thursday, around 15:30.
