One reviewer decimated me for not having publications when I applied for @NSF GRFP. Yesterday, 2.5 hours w/my team and we've divided up writing of my first paper. Plus *another* paper in the works. I'll have two as a 2nd year grad student. Take that! 👊
To be clear: I had *just begun* grad school when I applied for the fellowship. So, yeah, they pummeled me for not having a paper as a first year grad student, although I clearly outlined the research that's coming together into a publication (coming soon to a journal near you 😀)
So, I got rejected, but got an honorable mention from the @NSF, because one reviewer sucked. And guess what? I'm still gonna science and show exactly why I was one of the people they should've funded! 🙂 There's my rejection story =)
In fact, I'm working on both as we speak! The research from my previous institution in Mathematica, and my new one using Illustris data (!!) in python 👩‍💻
