Is it better/worse for a URM to receive a JS1 after a hold, or to receive a JS1 around two months after complete email without a hold??
Equally speculative answer: better without the hold. A two-month wait with no hold might just mean that it took them that long to review your file, but the hold means they did review your file and were unsure.
I'd say getting a JS1 is baller in either case! But we also know holds this year were for reasons other than the applicants' numbers per se, so that makes it even more speculative...
