Congrats to those who got admitted. Any comments on what is the "application is being held for further consideration" status. I assume this is hold and how is this different than waitlist. Does a "hold" status have a chance to get admission? Please advise wonderful ppl ... Kinda sad with the result.
In short, "hold" is a UCB way of saying "reject". UCB maintains a pool of "hold" candidate in case they have space left at the end of the admission cycle. (very unlikely to happen). Also working on conditions has no impact on the admission result. Many UCB candidates get admitted/enrolled regardless they have completed the "conditions" or not.
also please be advised, UCB admission staffs read quantnet threads. I saw them posting replies. Don't say something you don't want they to know.
