Among candidates that in the past were designated as "held," was there a typical outcome for the group (eg. many more were wait-listed on average) or did it seem to mirror the decision spread of the rest of the applicant pool?
I'm currently reading through the "held" thread from last year, but just wondering if anyone knows off-hand. Folks weren't always consistent about updating the spreadsheets last year with their outcomes and, as we've established many times before, TLS is almost certainly not representative anyway...but I'm curious, regardless.
I would like to know this as well, though the application deadline pushback might be a game changer. I would think that we will see more acceptances from the held group than in previous years when it was actually a category, because I am imagining a pile of apps that are the "likely admits, but we need the Feb LSAT people's apps first". Then again, the Feb people could be better applicants than expected and just send that whole pile in the garbage, so I'm probably just thinking optimistically.
My point being, I think it was largely WL/ding before (though I'd like to see numbers), but I think this year could be very different because of the changed deadline.
