I guess that since the target date was January 25th, those who like me haven't had any update on Minerva are gonna be rejected is that right ? I don't know if the fact that I am a NTP applicant changes anything.

 

Hi  :)

 

Don't stress. As per their website: 

 

"The following dates are for the Fall 2016 entry and are subject to change without notice. There is no winter or summer entry.

  • Application deadline:  November 2, 2015
  • Submission deadline: November 2, 2015
  • Target date for sending preliminary selections: March 2016  
  • Interview dates: May 2,3,4, 2016"

 

 

The above is for NTP. 

 

 

Good luck!

Thx for the answers!
