So, I heard from the head of the department yesterday, and he told me that they are not interested in supporting my area of research. Therefore, they wont be making me an offer.
Now I am not sure, if this comment was to lay me down easy or was it because they are interested more in another related area? Time will tell.
Anyway, I will have to tell you that it is a sigh of relief that I heard from them. No matter it is yes or no, as long as you get the answer. Waiting game is a gut wrenching thing, which can take a toll on your emotional energy. I didn't knew that till yesterday, when a NO made me feel better and relaxed !
