Im in Afghanistan and no internet access. Im currently in transit for a quick trip, so I have access for about 20 minutes before my flight arrives. So I hope someone responds quickly.
I was able to check my email and saw that I was held last week with a 3.8 /168. I have amazing work experience (USMC with 3x combat deployments), greatLORs, and a very well-crafted personal statement drawing off military, responsibility, maturity, etc over the course of a specific/technical project I supervised in Af last year. Gtown, Michigan, and UCLA all commented on how much they loved my PS.
What does held mean? I'd do the research myself, but I have very little time. Have they sent out rejections yet and it simply means I wasnt one of the first people rejected? I know about once a year or three, they accept someone with my stats who will add diversity to their class. So Im trying to figure out if I should continue laughing at my chances at H or if the held is a good sign that they are actually considering me.
Also, how do I submit additional material? LORS through LSAC? Updated resume through snail mail? LOCI through snail mail?
Yes, people have been rejected, and it looks like a lot have also been held. A hold means they are holding off on making a decision on you until they know what the rest of their applicant pool looks like. I think some people get in after being held from the earlier discussion in here, and it is definitely better than a rejection. I don't know about how to send additional documentation, so hopefully someone else answers that for you! Good luck!!
ETA: posted this without realizing snehpets just said almost the same exact thing. oops!
