We at Michigan are impressed by credentials displayed by your application to the PhD program in Electrical Engineering.
Unfortunately, admission to the PhD program is very competitive and limited by the number of available openings, and we are unable to offer you admission. As an alternative, we can admit you to the Masters program in Electrical Engineering, without financial aid, should you be interested in this possibility.
Please note that it is possible (but not guaranteed) to be admitted to the PhD program once you are here, provided that you find an adviser to support your PhD research by the end of the second semester, achieve satisfactory performance in the qualifying exam and research oriented directed study.
We are looking forward to your interaction and association with our program at The University of Michigan.
Please respond to this email, letting us know whether or not you wish to be admitted to the Master's program. We would appreciate your response as soon as possible, preferably within a week.
저는 석사도 괜찮다 라고 대답을 보냈는데 별 얘기가 없길래 메일을 한 번 더 보냈습니다.
그랬더니 아래처럼 답장이 오더군요.
I sorry but I must have missed your email.
I must change your level from PhD to Masters in the system, then I can admit you to the Master's program. When this has taken place (about 2 weeks) I will send you an email.
Then the Rackham Graduate School will let you know about the certification of funds.
If you would like some idea as to what are the costs see this
근데 이 사람 얘기가 '석사를 무조건 줄께, 행정 절차를 기다려라' 인가요, 아니면 '박사는 안되지만 석사 웨이팅 리스트에는 올려줄께, 어드미션 줄지 안 줄지 2주동안 기다려 봐라' 인가요? 저는 당연히 전자인줄 알고 있었는데 어제 불현듯 후자일지도 모른다는 생각이 들더라구요. 어느게 맞는지 정확히 해석해 주실 분 없나요 ㅠ
p.s. 이것도 제대로 해석 못해서 공부는 제대로 하겠니 라고 물어보신다면... 할말이 없네요. ㅋㅋ
