I am applying for a PhD position. The potential professor replied to me as below. Was it a positive one? I tried to arrange an informal interview with her but was rejected. I really like this position but, in my opinion, her reply was ambiguous.
"Thank you for sending your application. Your profile looks interesting. We are currently selecting candidates so I will add your application to the pool of applicants.
We hope to reach a final decision end of April. I will recontact you shortly after."
Edit: She told me the shortlist would come in mid-April, so I won't wait a long time LOL. It's time to apply for other positions!
