Depends on the funding
“I was shortlisted for Fulbright 2014 and gave my interview today. I have given my best and rest is up to Allah but i wanted to thank you for you had been a part of this partial success.
For your info my credentials are;
And one thing you could note is that the ratio of engineering students being shortlisted is very small compared to those who are of public policy and related sciences. Out of the 40 who were interviewed today in a total of 2 batches only 2 of us were from engineering and just 2 of MBA. So a public policy student has better chances of being shortlisted than an engineer. Also almost all of them were from LUMS with excellent credentials and communication skills.
And in reply to a comment of yours we were given a handout today congratulating us and mentioning that from a total of 1311 applicants this year approx. 300 are shortlisted and the final number of to be selected candidates depends upon the funding available.
Please pray for me, i really need them now.
