I see my status changed. Got an offer!!
@Aniruddha Dutta Hello, did you get an offer email or did you see an admission recommendation letter which asks you to accept or decline the offer on the application page? I saw the latter one, and when I called in the staff told me that, after I accept, the official admission letter will be sent out later this week or early next week, due to Thanksgiving.

By the way, I also have a conditions checklist that requires I take several courses, do you guys get that too?

Thanks!

@Takei congrats man!! when did you get your result?
@cooldude Last Friday I logged in to the application page and found that the box saying "Your application is submitted, you will be considered for Round 5 (I actually submitted my application after the DDL for Round 4 but this year they have extended the final DDL to Nov 9, don't know why)" disappeared, and I have a condition checklist saying that the committee requires me to take several prerequisite courses. I thought I was put to hold, but this morning I found an update to my application which turned out to be an admission recommendation letter, and I accepted it. I called in and was told that the official admission letter should be sent within several days.

Congrats to @Takei and @Aniruddha Dutta!
Just got my letter this morning... So I assume HOLD means reject? There are several courses I have already taken but still on the condition list. Weird...

Did you get an email or it's just stated on the website?
I got an email asking me to check my status change on the website. That moment I knew it won't be good news; otherwise, they should start with "Congratulations!" lol

I guess it's not true? I also got an email asking me to check my status, and when I logged in to the application page, I got a letter saying that I will be recommended to the Graduate Office for admission and asking me to accept or decline the offer. It's not the official admission letter though.
