Unlikely, but one thing I can say as an international applicant: USA has too many national holidays right in middle of application season :P First MLK, now this :P

I think those are elaborate trolling attempts, there is a single JR2 for MLK as well, which caused a lot of speculation but in the end nothing happened on that day.

Well, I believe there were actually a lot of JR2's reported on the Harvard thread last year on MLK, which is what caused the speculation for that day. I haven't looked into President's day, though.

There were rejections right before the mass hold in January. Not a ton, but a few. Are they rejected holds though? If so that would be scary.

UR 12/7. Dinged.

For some reason, I am not sad or disappointed at all. It could be that I wasn't ever expecting to get in, or the Xanax i took this morning is finally kicking in. lol

Wow, glitched. If you were dinged, I am certainly expecting a rejection, too.

Oh yeah - my condolences! On the bright side, you already have Chicago, which is amazing.

I'm remembering that I was expecting a WL at best at the beginning of my cycle and that I grew unrealistic expectations. Where I am right now is as good as I could reasonably expect.

That's so true. I was super realistic about my chances at every school when I turned in my apps. But now depending on the day sometimes I read stuff on TLS and think there's no way I have a chance, and other days I feel like there's no way I'm not getting into a certain school. Hurray for false hope!

Sorry to hear about the dings too! I didn't check TLS for the whole day and now this...:( Was anyone previously held? Don't know if I'm safe for the next 2 hours of the day.

Regarding this, final word comes from @hlsadmissions (Ye they have a Twitter now)
