I am applying to a thesis-based Master's program where the professor hires the students in their research group. I've interviewed the professor on skype and we have emailed each other after the interview half a dozen times. Now, after a few months, I asked him when the admission decisions are sent and he wrote me:
Dear X, I am currently reviewing all the people who showed interest in my research group. The results will be announced after I am done with this in the next month. Thank you for your patience and understanding
So, does this mean I am still being considered for the research group or is this a polite rejection?
