scsuh Posted March 10, 2009 Share Posted March 10, 2009 So, I just received this e-mail from SUNY Albany on my phone while I was out grocery shopping. I briefly skimmed it and came to the conclusion that I was on a wait list. But after coming home and re-evaluating the e-mail, I'm not so sure anymore. Anyone else receive this e-mail? Can someone interpret this for me? "Dear xxxxxxx, The Graduate Admissions Committee has finished completing our review of applicant files, and we were very impressed with your application. Unfortunately, due to the current budget situation facing the University at Albany, we were forced to dramatically reduce the number of assistantships we can offer this year. We have placed you in the top group of our waiting list for funding. We should have more information after March 27, and we hope to be able to be in touch shortly thereafter with more information about your application status. I am sorry not to be able to provide more definitive information to you. In an ordinary year, we would most certainly have offered you a full tuition scholarship and assistantship with stipend. We are still hopeful that we will be able to do so this year, but in the meantime I think it is only fair that we be fully transparent about our situation and your status."
