Congratulations to the accepted students. We received over 140 proposals this year and it was indeed a competitive process. The admins would like to thank all of the GNOME mentors that made our (the Admins) lives easier by participating in the commenting, scoring, and selecting process.
This year we were unable to get the students (accepted and rejected) email addresses from the system so our acceptance and better luck next year emails have been sent to the gnome-soc-list. If you were accepted and haven't yet subscribed to that list, please do so ASAP as emails concerning accounts and such will be coming out soon. Also, contact your mentors. They're waiting to hear from you and get you started on your way to being integrated into our fantastic community.
Thank you to all the students that applied and watch this space and the lists for continuing SoC updates.

Yesterday, I officially became a short timer at Clemson with the successful defense of my PhD research proposal. The next several months will be filled with the remaining work to complete my research and write my dissertation.
