Got an email an hour ago - I was selected as a recipient of the scholarship! There were three slots this year and only two applicants, so I am guaranteed to receive it from the department.

I hope they both of you receive good news as well!

I just wonder is it true ? you can still fail to get scholarship, even the school has recommended you. Since the decision is made by mext not titech

From how I understand it, yes the final decision is with MEXT.

However if you read this entire thread, there's not a single case if it be happening. In fact it seems MEXT allows TiTech to do the vetting.

Curious what exactly you believe is true or not?

That means you basically got it. Go back and read through this thread, it's extremely uncommon for a student to be recommended for MEXT by TiTech and rejected. It seems like it hasn't actually happened yet.

Just wait until March 4th and they send you the official results, once that's done you are good to go!

Glad to hear that. Thank you for your insight :)

To be honest, I was pretty worried before, since I think my interview was not good enough due my overtime presentation
btw, I hope all the best result for you guys

Well congrats! I also passed the exam (I checked from the website), I already emailed my intended professor asking about MEXT scholarship, and he said
"The result of MEXT scholarship will be informed to you in due course. Please wait for a moment." Im still waiting for the official notification from admission.

Well, my prof said Tokyo Tech guarantees that MEXT will never make a decision against the recommendation from Tokyo Tech. So I think the odd you get the scholarship is pretty large as long as you successful enrolled to Tokyo Tech

This is correct! Tentatively selected just means they want to make sure you confirm enrollment first.

Best of luck for everyone still waiting on the results!
