Still at 12/20 here.
I wonder if the system works any differently for hold applicants.
If any of you have been accepted from a hold, was there something under mailings?

Crossing my fingers for you. As you can see, I asked this question above, and no one answered it.

thanks and you too!! :P I hope I end up being able to answer your question. I currently have nada under mailings but a decision is being sent to me "via U.S. Postal Service within 3-5 days from the Decision Status Date."

I think you go from the old decision date straight to new decision date. UR date doesn't change. It SEEMS like it, anyway.

Anyone have news?

God held back in October, nothing since. Also not a single word from BU since October, so I think the city of Boston just hates me... should I send a LOCI letting them know I'm Irish?

I'll try to clarify a few things here for all the BC hopefuls. Based on my experience with them, if your status goes from In Review to Decision Rendered, and if you are accepted, you will receive an email almost immediately which includes a small video that shows the dean congratulating you, the dean will tell you that your acceptance package is on the way. I got the email the day my status changed.

If you don't receive any email after seeing your status goes into Decision Rendered, then I think it's possible that they either waitlisted or dinged you.

Hope this helps, good luck to all!

yeah, we figured that out about 2 months ago

also, this is the thread for applicants who already received their decision, which was 'held'

Same here, but DR 12/10. I am really hoping they stick to the 2/28 deadline. Maybe they are just doing a large batch right before the deadline?

The waiting is definitely killing me.

Sorry, xxxo. Hopefully, there's still a few acceptances to come out of the hold pile. It seems like most are getting hold-> rejected. :(
