I think it depends on where you stand in the held pile. def sense there are two types of "holds", the near admits and the very distant possibilities
. people like me haven't cared to check or be involved since they will obviously pick off the people like you first: not everyones chances in here are even, its much like waiting for the initial pre-hold decision but just significantly worse chances
I'm just gonna go ahead and unbookmark this thread.
I wouldn't place you in either of those bolded categories... affirmative action changes the whole game, never know how many underrepresented kids they will need so if I were a betting man I'd say if they held you, your shot is as good as it can get here. if enough of their admitted minority students chose new haven, palo alto, or a sweet deal over cambridge, your in.
