I applied for PhD programs starting from the fall of 2015 at several universities and I was waiting very eager to hear from them, because I just finished my MS last spring semester and don't want to waste time.
However, in the mid of this month, I received email from one school telling me that the admissions committee has decided to move my application for review to the 2016 - Spring semester. In the letter, it didn't mention any acceptance/rejection. They moved my application for the next review which doesn't mean I have been accepted.
I'm really wondering why and how did they decided to delay my application. Moreover, What would you advise in this situation? Can I ask them the chances of acceptance or the reason for the delay? Or should I just wait?
