thanks a lot for your availability and interest in *** and ***. Your CV is very good and you are surely in the top-list of our Ph.D candidates. I was also very nice talking with you on the phone. However, for the moment I do not have good news for you and, although I think you are a very good student, we are able to offer you the position with GRA for the next Fall.
I feel sorry for this and I do wish you all the best in your future pursuits.
