Oh dear. This is bad. I wish such companies learn to respect the interviewees. They opened up the job position, got candidates to go for interviews, made candidates wait for the results and now they said such things.

On the positive side, the fact that they inform u of this means that if they go ahead with the recruitment, u would be shortlisted?

Sounds dubious...
Keep on applying to other jobs and try to get interviews and offers in the mean time. You never know - another offer might become so compelling that it beats this one. In short dont just pin all your hopes on one thing. Gd luck!
