I would assume so, because none of us hold applicants have even received an initial decision of 'admit' 'wait list' or 'deny'


Lurker breaking his vow never to post on TLS to say: no, not necessarily. I called the Admissions Office yesterday and they said that if a WL applicant has something hold applicants don't, they'll admit off the WL.

The main reason I called was this discrepancy between the hold decision letter and the hold response confirmation:

Decision Letter: "In May, we expect to conduct a re-evaluation of candidates who have chosen to remain on hold. After this
re-evaluation has occurred, you will be notified whether you have been admitted, denied, or placed on our summer
waitlist."

Hold Response Confirmation: "Starting in May, the Admissions Committee expects to conduct a re-evaluation of candidates who have chosen to remain on hold. After this re-evaluation has occurred, you will be notified whether you have been admitted, denied, or placed on our summer waitlist."

The Admissions guy said the latter formulation controls and so there's no expectation for us to hear by the end of May. He also sort of laughed while explaining that being held was a non-decision decision. Like hmm, hadn't noticed that yet...

Has anyone heard of any additional wait list movement? It's June and I'm starting to stress out and lose hope...

Was the deadline to submit the waitlist for 5/15? I could've sworn that's what my decision letter originally said, but upon looking at it again today, weeks after responding, it says the deadline is 6/3. Did anyone else notice this or am I going crazy? Am I supposed to respond again...?

I think the same thing happened to me. I'm a rather-safe-than-sorry person so I went ahead and filled it out again. :P

I'm in the same boat - on hold since early Feb. I called Wednesday and was told they were still reviewing applications and I could expect to hear back in a "few weeks" - whatever that means. When I asked if there was a deadline they expected to release decisions to applicants on hold, she again told me all she could say was that we would hear in a "few weeks"...

They're really going above and beyond to get us timely responses :roll:

Can you explain? Were you put on the waitlist initially and now bumped over to a "summer waitlist"?

Ditto. Anyone know what the point of being moved from "waitlist" to "summer waitlist" is? It's been summer for weeks now....
