Same here. Going to guess it doesn't mean anything...sadly.

How about anyone UR or Held that did NOT just get that update posts here. If you don't post saying you didn't get it, we'll assume you did!

Held. 172/4.04. A little surprised I didn't get a JS1, but I suppose you should never take anything for granted with YHS.

I don't think we've established that the hold email is bad, just that it is not as good as a JS1.

Would people agree that the first wave of holds was for people who had already had a JS1, but the 2nd wave is for JS0s?

That's comforting to hear. Although it stings a little more than I thought, it beats the heck out of an outright ding. Historically, what can those held expect regarding timeframes and chances of acceptance?

Also, am I correct in understanding that a hold is different from a waitlist, or are they synonymous?

Sorry about all the holds =\ just curious, did your status checker update to reflect the hold status?

Held. Complete early December. I hear some got held after a js1? I never got one--can anyone speak to the difference in our chances of admission? And in general to held applications?

Held. 3.6/172, strong softs. Complete 12/19.

Totally thought I was an auto-ding so I guess I'm happy! Or something?
