That seems like a question for them. What percentage of people with very good positions were offered seats in time to get a visa? Surely the time to get a visa must be very tight.

Time taken to receive a visa varies from 2 weeks to 12 weeks.
I have applied for 4 colleges.
HS Esslingen-Reject.
MBAE HTWBerlin-No response.
HS Bremen-Last date for application 31st July.
HS Pforzheim-Waitlisted.
The visa processing will definitely depend on my luck.
How ever should I wait or take the wait list as impossible to convert and reach Germany in time?
I am from India .

I wonder why they rejected you. Are German schools tough to get into?

HTW takes up to a month to decide. Since its deadline was June 15, you almost certainly don't have a place. You might want to apply for the next semester, at different schools, and try to become a better candidate. At this very late stage, you are in a big pool of candidates with better qualifications.

No moreso than other similar quality schools in other countries. Could be a number of factors. It's late into the application cycle so it could be that all the spots have been filled. Or maybe it's because the applicant is from a highly competitive applicant pool - he/she is from India. Or could be other factors too, like the strength of the personal statement, references, etc.
