What if they work in tandem to split the candidates they accept, so they can keep their yields high and stick in to the other top schools?


Hahah would that be so unlikely? Some Ivy League colleges openly admit they exchange admit lists...

I am shocked and offended by this statement. JS1 does not seem to follow the admissions etiquette. You don't give someone a JS1 just to hold them a week later.


This is almost exactly my 2 month anniversary of being UR. And the "What does a 'Hold' mean?" post on the admissions blog says that people who have been UR for 2 months with no decision are held. So maybe that's why? :?

They are very smart people who compete against each other aggressively every cycle for rankings. I wouldn't be surprised if some admissions deans had strategic alliances. I would!

Well, at least they aren't rejections, but this is pretty disappointing. Oh well

Sigh.


You are Awesome. Capital A.

Damn near had a heart attack.

(Also, sorry Elliot+Mikey et al. That sucks.)

Also, at the risk of sounding insensitive, can we speculate on whether a batch of JS2s might follow this group of holds...?

Lets go with no. I think they will give more people on hold JS1s and then compare them to those who already had JS1's in hopes of bringing in the best applicants possible. I keep telling myself that there are being conservative and I'm thankful for that, as I feel I deserve a look before too many people are admitted. Hang in there Elliot and Mikey; good things are coming!

Congrats!!!

@THE LONG, That's what I'm trying to say. We get all these finely-honed ideas of how schools do things and then someone new comes and changes it all up. Messes with our predictive powers.

Thanks, Byz.

I think there was a question that came up in my interview that I could have answered significantly better. Will do that via LOCI. Thanks for the support everyone.
