Awesome question. I think you directed it towards the people who would most know too!

...it's a valid question. The people getting called could say whether they were close to the beginning of the alphabet, which would at least help in guessing.

Or you could wait like maybe another hour to get called...

calm down. Everyone will know soon

I'm perfectly calm, but there are people who aren't, and the only purpose to this forum is to discuss people getting in, freak out about getting in, analyze the decision making process, etc. You'll notice it in every single other thread. I don't think there's any need to sarcastically call out people who are worried just because you aren't.

So does anyone know whether or not being "held" at SMU is really a "hold" or it's more or less synonymous with WL, like UIUC seems to have been this cycle?

Some holds get in, most seem to get waitlisted (based on the extremely small sample size on TLS), a few get outright rejected. The downside is that most didn't seem to hear till the end of April. it could be different this year though.

Your current status has changed to "Held for Further Review." Although your application has been reviewwed, we have deferred making a final decision until we are able to review at least some of the regular decision applications. Your file will go through another review cycle later this Spring and you will be notified of a final decision by the end of April. We are unable to release decisions by phone or email. All final decisions will be mailed.


Hm.
