Well this news are not actually breaking since they are already some days old, so I should post it here, before I get used to it and all the excitement is gone:
I got a PhD scholarship from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. I had an interview there on March 27, which went not really glorious in my opinion, it was OK. So I thought they returned my application papers when I found a big A4 envelope in my letter box. But inside was a nice letter and the agreement for the scholarship. Man I was so overwhelmed and happy when I realized what I was holding in my hands. Tomorrow will be my first day … let's see what it will bring!
