thnx for the reply, but I never got any formal email stating I have been waitlisted before, which this particular dept. usually do. And he also stated that 1 position has opened up recently. So, do you think I will get the admit?
What it means when someone receives an email from the Admission chair of the PhD program asking the current status of the student, i.e whether the student is still interested in joining their program or whether he has already accepted a PhD offer?
