STILL "On hold" for grad school. Meaning? Reapplication info?

Hey!

 

So I applied to NPSIA's MA in Intl Affairs for Fall 2014, and received an email on the 2nd of June saying:

 

 

"I am emailing to let you know that your application to the MA International Affairs program is still on hold.  While your application was well liked by the admissions committee, we are currently full for the fall term.  Your file will remain on hold and if a space becomes available,  your file will be reviewed for admissions."

 

 

Anyone have any clue if this means I'm on waitlist OR do they still need to check my application? Do i even make the minimum requirements?

(I applied really late for the program - late March) way past 1st deadline

 

Also, anyone have any experience with reapplying to the same program after being waitlisted the previous year? Do you have to re-submit all documents?

 

Thanks!

I think it means you're on the waitlist and will be admitted as soon as a space opens, but at this point it seems terribly late not to have a clear decision yet (unless you school doesn't start in August/September like most US schools do?). Have you contacted them to see if there's still any chance? And you should check with them about document resubmission too if you plan on reapplying - I believe it is program-dependent.

I did get in touch a few days back; they said they were still full although they wait till Aug 31st to give a definite answer back. It starts in Sept too which is what is even more worrying.

 

Thanks!

It is exceedingly unlikely that a spot will open up in August. Even if one did would you have to time to find a place to live near the university?

I'd wait until September and then ask them if they can use the same materials you provided last year for this years application season or if they want you to fill out everything again. If you have new information which will make your application stronger I'd suggest filling it out from scratch again.
