I am. Just enjoying the whole "you're a select group of applicants" irony. People are being held in droves. DROVES.

Meant that for all of us, not just you. If it's any console this thread seems less populated than last years held thread was around this time.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if your application status check updated every time someone thought about or looked at your application? one can dream.

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 for everyone.

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.

Depending on my mental state in about 8 weeks, you're either my new best friend, or the guy who broke me. Till then: BFF

What does "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" mean? I heard it in a Harry Potter movie when Snape was doing the unforgettable vow (or something like that), asked my mom, who was sitting next to me in the movie theater, what it meant and she said, "you'll learn when you get a little older." :?

Is there a projected timeline based off early cycles? Because a "hold" is not waitlist, or really a decision either way, so at what point do they clear out all the holds or at least the majority of them? I understand waitlists may never end...but holds? when!?

You could look at previous years' threads to accumulate this information. Maybe even share it with the rest of us?
