I just got to know that I've been waitlisted for a PhD program at the Central European University (CEU)
The weird thing is, when I contacted my interviewers and the school's admission staff to thank them for their support throughout the application process, all three of them replied by saying: congratulations on being waitlisted. One interviewer, who indeed proofread my research proposal before I submitted, even went as far as saying that getting waitlisted signals that I'm ready for doctoral studies.
I've been thinking that, isn't it a bit weird to congratulate me on being put on the waiting list? Does it mean I have a good chance of moving up the list soon?
Just two quick notes:
1) I was also waitlisted for CEU for my MA and eventually got a full tuition scholarship after waiting for a month.
2) I've checked the admission statistics, in the last 5 years only 65-70% of those who got an offer accepted.
