Hi

In my language there is a saying whose literal translation would be something like this:

Neither here nor there

When you decide to leave one option for something better but that something better never happens.

Frank did not opt for Preston College hoping that he would get admission in TBS. But now he's neither here nor there.

Is there any English equivalent?

Thanks,

Tom

We have "Neither here nor there", but not with that meaning. For us it means

not to make any difference
to be indifferent about it
not to care.

See the link for examples.

We have an equivalent, but it's very informal. You would use it only in very casual conversation.

Frank was so sure he'd get into TBS that he didn't even apply at Preston. Now he's up the creek without a paddle.
