I am sooooo disappointed. This reminds me a lot of the hold process at NU. It's a great way to string along candidates.

I'm curious to see how close to closing time they get.

I was a sacrificial lamb today and actually called and asked if they had reached a decision on my application. They said that they were actively evaluating the held candidates but didn't say much else. I have a feeling they are just loading a massive reserved cannon to be launched tomorrow at 445 EST.

Thanks for the info. Did they say if they would be able to release the decisions by tomorrow?

Reserves happened last year between 11am and 4pm so we can officially enjoy the last 24 hours of this process.

I know technically I should post in the other thread but as someone who has not been held and not received any decision, do people think they will be releasing decisions for both waiting groups tomorrow? Or will they perhaps release held decisions and then, finally, get to the rest of the people waiting to hear back for the first time?

April 25 better be a hard deadline. I don't want to sit around for another week to wait for my "reserve."

I believe we will hear tomorrow, as fivestarfolds mentioned it is unprecedented for them to be this late. At this point I kind of hope mine comes at the final minute, just to make it a better story.

No, not according to last year's thread which has its last post at the end of May (is that right?).

Some people were left in the eternal throes of purgatory.

I think from reading last year's thread (Just the original 2016 applicants one; I couldn't find a Held one?) the last response with a decision was May 1st.

This is an ancient held thread. If you go to the front page, this was begun in something like 2010. We are all bound together, through time, in this same place.

Sorry Non, my CLS angst is being transferred into weird activities (e.g. tar switching, 20-mile bike rides, Ally McBeal marathons...wtf)

S'all good. No idea what part of the country/world you are in but today has been an excellent day for bike riding in my neck of the woods.

I just took a peak at last year's posts in this thread. It cuts off in March, so there's not much to be learned there. Continuing on a page or so, I saw some familiar faces from this thread, each of us naively optimistic that being Held was a good indication and that we would hear back well before April 25. How wrong we were.

Indeed, and before that I can remember waiting for the big blue envelope, thinking each day "Aww Yiss, Mutha Fukin CLS"

Never came.

so do we have evidence that acceptances still roll out this late in the game?
I'm particularly asking as someone who hasn't heard anything yet at all; no hold.
