I am below on both. The funny thing is, I knew that I wouldn't likely get in, and I thought that knowledge would make the impact less, um, painful. That hasn't been true. Monday is near, and I may still have a chance. I think deferral to RD is much more likey, with a waitlist to follow. I just need to be an adult and cope with it.
Translation: Boo, stop being such an entitled little whiner.
Being held is basically stringing out the torture. Last year, those held over to RD were asked to send in extra materials and then they promised to review them again in March. They ended up not reviewing them again until May and WL'ed all of them (at least the ones who were on TLS). Some of them did get of the waitlist in later in the spring/early summer but that's 5+ months of waiting.
