Congrats! Mine still says "Application with Department for Revision".

Did you receive the offer via e-mail? Was it today? What about financial aid?

Yes, just a few minutes ago and admission with tuition waiver.

Cool, I still haven't heard anything but I guess I should hear later today if admitted or not.
Is BGSE your top choice or more of a back-up?

It's better than mine. Mine says "Application submitted successfully" :(

I guess you don't need to worry, they said we should have not waited an answer before february, and I don't think they mailed all applicants simultaneously.

I got admission just now, with a partial tuition fee waiver. Did not get a TA though :(

I was admitted as well, with a tuition waiver.

Does everyone else have a deadline of Feb 28th by which to respond with deposit? What's the best approach to asking for an extension? I'm quite happy with the offer but of course would ideally like to see the results of my other applications before making any final decisions...

I have the deadline for 27th.. And I didn't get founded :( . Do they normally accept extensions? I think Canadian schools will give an answer after that date.

For me it is 28th as well. I hope they accept extensions..

Same here, accepted with no funding and waiting on Canadian schools to reply. Would it be foolish to go without any funding? Adds up to ~20K tuition, not counting living expenses...

What did you guys do in the end? Are you going, or rejected the offer? Or perhaps you got an extension and are still waiting?

I requested an extension to keep the option just a little bit longer, but I think that CEMFI strictly dominates BSGE for me now. It will cost less and I have a high preference for smaller class sizes. The only thing that is causing me to hesitate is that Jordi Gali is at BSGE...

I've also requested an extension and was granted only 2 more weeks. I think I would also prefer smaller classes, but there are a few profs at BGSE with a very good research interest fit for me and that's just more important at the moment. I am just worried about how short and condensed this program seems to be. I feel like I won't be able to do everything I'd like to do in 9 months. Re: money, how much cheaper is CEMFI?

For me it would be just the cost of living over the two years. Luckily, it looks like they also more or less set you up with a research job between the school years at a university, central bank, or private company and so that should help with the financials as well.

This would be CEMFI. BGSE is only a one year program.
