    Anybody have any insight into application status being placed in HOLD status this late in the game? He is fully qualified and everything complete. Thanks

    When did his status change to hold? Hold means that you are fully qualified but they are waiting to rank you in your state once they evaluate the rest of the applicants. I talked to admissions the other day and the next round of applicants will be evaluated this week and files will be designated about a week or so after they do so. So just hang tight, you're son is almost there!

    If you don't mind me asking, what are you DS's SAT/gpa scores just for comparison sakes? You can pm if you are more comfortable sharing that way.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks!

    This explanation is a little different than what I understand from my sons "hold" letter he received. The letter states he is 3q but is being placed on the national waiting list and as vacancies occur, HOLD candidates are offered appointments in order of merit based on their competitive standing on the state AND national listings.

    Yes what your letter says is probably right. I'm just saying what admissions told me verbatim, I'm sure they meant that the pool carries over to a national ranking as well.

    What does 3q mean?

    correct

    Yes both accurate posts. DS told he is on waiting list until all applications reviewed. Plan B in full swing. Do you know if they automaticly offer prep school or do you have to request/apply?

    My son was on hold, his status changed to "blank" last week and today he received an appointment to NMMI as a sponsored prep!

    Happy Dance!
