I was held for the last month from ED. I assume at this point that you are now on their wait list if you were just held today.

Also on hold here (TT, top 8%). Bizarre phrasing. Is "waitlist" a dirty word now?

I'm shocked they did this so late in the game! Does anyone know when their OCI's are? and if this would prevent students admitted in the next few weeks to participate in them?

They have to have a pool for when folks jump ship to the other schools who haven't released decisions yet.

Also held. Their bidding for OCI starts late July. I am also surprised by how many people they are keeping on hold with such little time

For posterity's sake: held >10% at T20. The lesson is probably not to defer after submitting ED.

I don't think it will be more than a week before most hear back. They are just waiting for higher/similarly ranked schools to make decisions.

Congrats to all the admits (though I only see one so far?).

FYI OCI Bidding is from the 17-23, so there is still time. I haven't put together a bid list so I imagine you're in the same boat as the ED transfers.

I think on TLS 8 were admitted ED, and 2 so far RD. Last year they took 23 transfers, so I guess there is still hope, but they are really cutting it close!

My friend was admitted ED and he said there were 15 of them.

What I don't get is that they told everyone decisions would be made mid-July...if they wanted to just get a sense of what other schools were doing, why didn't they just withhold decisions until then instead of formally holding a large population now?

This may be true, although it's hard to tell via the Facebook page because many of the 3L transfers have also joined.

11 out of the 21 people on the facebook page are new admits, the rest of us are 3L's. There could very well be 15 assuming that there are people who never joined the group

I'm sure someone will ask... seat deposit is due 12:00 PM July 15th. Best of luck to those on hold.
