Since waiting was killing me softly, I wrote them an email to know if something was up, here is what they responded:
"The department has not yet made a decision on your application. We will notify you via email when the decision is made, but that may not occur until the end of April."

So, i guess, waiting is not over yet...

same e-mail, i'll interpret it as "you are not our preferred candidate, it's a maybe, so please kindly wait for remaining space"

I have heard a hypothese that for most programs if someone is not admitted before the 15-th of April, he/she is actually waitlisted

I've been thinking about the same thing, that's sucks....
I took a look at the trackers, some only had to wait 2 weeks :(

Basically, I've applied in late February, since I had to wait for my GRE exams. And I've received THE letter on March, 29th.

I'm deciding between LSE & Columbia, asked abt job placement rate to both, Columbia didnt sound very optimistic while LSE sounded very optimistic. (but both did not give exact figures, just qualitative statements).

As you seem to be European, you may want to work in London and LSE would be better for this reason. I think both are very good but their reputation are not the same depending countries.

Well it's the "short" wait list for me ?
I'm kinda disappointed, .... did you guys got an answer ?

btw, Is the "short" wait list, is really short, or they just say that to keep me hanging ?

Hey guys,

Any news from this program? I have got WL in the early April. Anyone knows the chance to be admitted after WL?

Thx.

Same situation here, and so far nothing new. I actually don't even know when we'll be noticed about a possible new offer. Besides, judging by the number of people who are on the WL, it does not seem that "short" ...

If someone has any news, plz let us know
