  1. Well, it's mid-May and still no news. So I guess this means I didn't get it. Gutted. Wish they would write though. At this stage bad news is better than waiting in hope.

    1. Hello, Kitty,

      well, yes, if they didn't write to you, but they wrote to the others, it may mean that you haven't been chosen. And, the fact they didn't write back would leave a bad taste on my tongue, too.

      Anyway, wishing you luck with other scholarships and competitions.
