Yep. I initially missed the link to the letter retrieval site. Hold, as expected. Recommence the waiting.

So it looks like 3.5 was the cutoff for splitters doing ED? Did anyone get in with a sub 3.5?

If you got held, they probably said you can submit supplemental essays. I got held last year and didn't get in till April so keep hope alive and do everything you can to show them your awesomeness

Held. Ugh, the letter says they start reviewing in January. This is going to be long and painful.

Well, it's been real, guys. Nice waiting with you all. Let's do it again some time.


Oh wait...

Honestly, I don't think our holds mean what they used to. I think it basically means "We're definitely not giving you $150K now." But if the money weren't a factor, I'm not sure all of us would've been held. I think we're going to see decisions sooner than held applications in previous cycles. Just a guess.

Not sure, but doubt it! At least next year's applicants will have an idea of what ED admits will look like if NU decides to keep their ED scholly program in place.

Look at the bright side - I'm sure you will be accepted to a lot of wonderful schools and now you have a chance to let your cycle fully play out. Also - holidays and colorful holiday cookies.

But where is crumps? Crumps, WHAT IS YOUR STATUS???

Condolences about all the holds, guys. :(

I hope you guys aren't ED or bust, and will hang around to maybe get in RD or off the WL!! Hang in there! (You can apply for whatever leftover scraps of scholarship money they still have, on Jan 1 like I'll be doing.)

OH MY GOD I ALMOST FUCKING DIED.

Got to work this morning and saw an email from NU. Suddenly lost the ability to breathe, may have passed out for a moment from fear (okay, that last part is a lie). After yesterday, I was TERRIFIED that I was being rejected.

No surprises here, though: I'm placed on hold & released from my ED obligations. 2.8/176 for those who don't know.

I'm definitely not ED or bust. I would have applied ED without the scholarship offer. I just hate this waiting.

Definitely not ED or bust, but with my current lease/ job situation, riding the waitlist into the summer isn't an option. So, it's NU before April or Vandy. Both options I'm happy with.

Brb, continuing search for bright side.

+100000

ETA: Don't be so glum, fellow on-hold people! Most of us expected this anyway. This should be a happy moment: we're still in the running, and we're finally no longer waiting in radio silence. :mrgreen:

Actually this is more accurate for my situation as well. Since I have Mich summer start... riding the waitlist into the summer isn't an option for me either. Hopefully NU gives me a nod asap. Since I have to sign a lease for Ann Arbor if I commit asap, holding out for NU is going to be tough.
