Yes, which defeats the purpose of this "held" business, but that's the game we play. For whatever reason, I have a hard time believing they would outright reject people who had JR1s and if they were going to waitlist us, why not send us all that "hold" email? I don't want to get other people's hopes up, but my inclination is to think it was a good sign for pre-Thanksgiving JR1 people to NOT get a "hold" email today. I have nothing concrete on which to base that assumption, though, so don't hold me to it.
