I applied to the NREL and Idaho national lab for renewable energy technologies and mechanical engineering. Just wondering if anyone has heard any news from these two or any others?
Yes, that would be me.I know someone else on this forum said they got an offer from Argonne around the first week of February.
Congratulations!I just got an offer from Oak Ridge today. I know someone else on this forum said they got an offer from Argonne around the first week of February. I think it's a bit weird with these offers, since the way it seems like it works is that researchers search through the apps to find students. This may or may not happen any time soon, so offers could be any time. I got an offer from NASA last week as well, and this is almost a month before their official application deadline. So I wouldn't worry too much about it.
No, I definitely received an offer. I've already chosen the project I will be working on and signed the necessary paperwork. It's official, no doubt about that.Congratulations!
Around the first week of February? Is he sure its an offer. Because what happens with SULI is that when you get an email from someone asking if you are interested, it is not an offer but simply to see if you would be interested in the particular research (they send it to a few). The offer is only sent with an official mail (and will be on your status page).
What do you mean by heard back exactly? An offer or a mentor asking if you are interested in his research topic?Last year I went to SLAC, and they didn't contact me until...mid-April? It was something like that. This year I heard back from Brookhaven a couple days ago. I reason that the date must vary pretty dramatically between labs.
