Jacobs University Bremen Decisions!

<p>Anyone here is applying or have applied here?</p>

<p>I got my decision 2 days ago. I got accepted. Major: Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.</p>

<p>You can also post your decisions/ questions here.</p>

<p>One student from Nepal got accepted. Where are you from?</p>

<p>^^ India. Did you apply?</p>

<p>I got accepted too on the 20th for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I'm from Pakistan.</p>

<p>No. I did not. I just wanted to add some more info. According to the recent info, 4 from Nepal have been accepted.</p>

<p>I got €6,000 merit aid for each year. What about you guys?</p>

<p>I got €22,500 per annum (full scholarship) :) i'm so happy and relieved</p>

<p>^^ Great! Whats is your stat?</p>

<p>i got a 12000 Euro per year. Rest i guess will be grant + loan. They will cover the full direct expense i guess... isn't it?</p>

<p>General Comments: :D</p>

<p>You have very impressive stats! Jacobs shouldn't have been too tough for you!</p>

<p>@Ahoy91 Yes, they meet the demonstrated need largely through loans. :)</p>

<p>^Thanks, though I seriously though my CR score would hurt my scholarship chances.</p>

<p>^^600 above in every section is enough for Jacobs. :p</p>

<p>^^ Exactly... But it seems to be a really good university.</p>

<p>Anyone else accepted here?</p>

<p>I'm in Round II Admission & I'm applying for Biotechnology. =)</p>

<p>@doublehotchoco Do you mind sharing your stats?</p>

<p>Got in for electrical engineering with merit aid.Now conflicted whether to attend my US college or Jacobs...I love Europe and I love jacobs!Has anyone applied for finaid?the process is so boring and tedious I just cant get it done :P</p>

<p>I got 1650 in SAT Reasoning. I know it's really a bad score ); I didn't really know about the test at all before I went to sit for the test & i thought it doesn't require any preparations which i then figured out i was completely wrong about that.</p>

<p>For my SAT II, I got- Bio:610, Maths2:730, Chem:750</p>

<p>I'm actually doing CIE A Level program now. I got 3As & 1B for my AS.
Chemistry-A 94%
Biology-A 84%
Maths-A 92%
Physics-B 70%</p>

<p>I'm going to sit for A2 in May & I'm taking Chem,Bio&Maths in A2 level exam.</p>

<p>For my O Level (as SPM in Malaysia), I obtained 9As 1B
4 A+(super distinction) in Chemistry,Maths,Additional Maths,History
3 A(high distinction) in English language,Biology,Physics
2 A-(distinction) in Moral education, Chinese language
1 B+(super credit) in Malay language</p>

<p>My IELTS overall band is 7.0 (Listening:8.5, Reading:7.0, Speaking & Writing: 6.5)</p>

<ul>
<li>I'm afraid my chance of being accepted is at risk since I have a really really bad score in SAT as compared to other applicants. Do you think the same?
Comments & opinion are welcomed.Thank you ;)</li>
</ul>

<p>@macmill: I have applied for financial aid too...
@double hot choco: If you have written good essays then you have a strong chance.</p>
