woohoo! Does anyone know if there is a limit to how many people they will take?
It pretty much depends on how much their sponsors can provide I think. For example in the last batch, initially it was mentioned that only 5 slots were open for the international fellowship. But later when class started, there were literally hundreds (if not thousands) of people who were accepted. In her blogpost (http://www.fast.ai/2017/12/18/personal-brand/), Rachel mentioned AWS giving away around 250K worth of credit - I imagined this could be the reason of the widespread acceptance.
That being said, I don’t know for certain how much many they’ll be accepting this time. Coupled with the fact that crestle and paperspace seems to be really popular with the students - not sure we’ll be getting AWS credits too.
