Obviously worse than an A
hold means they havent made a decision yet and will review your application again later. I think some ppl say its a better version of a waitlist
LOCI or no LOCI for hold?
There are about 200 holds on LSD and about 200 acceptances. Bummer

They take the strongest stat apps first and circle back after. They don’t go in order of when you send your app in, so don’t worry unless you have to!

NYU theory : they batch by date UR. some UR dates dont have decisions while some before/ after them. my guess is that theyre batched by date and reader
