The email I got said they are putting my application on hold and will reevaluate it after they have a better sense of the application pool. So I assumed this is a waitlist because I didn't apply ED, but others are telling me it's a hold. I'm assuming it's the same thing and that there is no meaningful difference, but correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!
Edit: Just googled the difference. It looks like there is a hold list and a waitlist and the hold list is basically a waitlist for people who applied early, not necessarily ED. Is this the general consensus?
I think its better than a waitlist? If they are holding their decision they are basically waiting to see what the applicant profile will look like before making a decision on your application. Meaning you will probably get another update from hem much sooner than a waitlist applicant. Or at least thats my understanding of the hold distinction.
Ah, thank you! I'll take this. The letter said a decision will be made by 2/28 so I guess they're just going to evaluate me along with the December test takers
