Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
Kinda sad about missing that first wave lol
Damn a 166 rejection? What the...
what does "hold" mean, any shot you get in after receiving one?
I got put on "hold" too lol the hold email said it could take until April to revisit the apps on the hold
To me it feels like someone that doesn't want to date you, but they want to keep you on the backburner should in case their better options fall through
just in case*
I'll likely just withdraw my application. I did have genuine interest in Miami, but idk something about the hold rubs me the wrong way haha I know it isn't personal, but also know I won't wait around until April/May waiting for them
Is it better than a waitlist, how likely do people get in after a hold
If I had to guess, it seems slightly better than a WL - but also similar. The WL is a decision though whereas the hold isn't, if that makes sense. So maybe slightly better than being WL
@wealthofnations: would you say your application exemplified Miami was one of your top choices? I'm seeing someone with lesser stats than you with an A so I'm bit surprised with your hold lol.
You're out of state and applied to 27 schools so perhaps they're yield protecting.
Miami rejected a 166 this year too though already
And yeah, totally agree that's probably partially true. They were right in assuming that, I would have considered Miami with good $ but they weren't one of my top choices. So no hard feelings, I already withdrew the app.
They said the hold could last until April/May so didn't feel worth waiting
Sorry that first message about the 166 was for the "general" chat lol someone was talking about a 167 rejected today at Miami but it was a late last cycle entry
does everyone get an email with a cane link ID?
@HighfalutinLameKoala: Much better than a WL. A hold is basically them pooling your application with people applying at a later date. A waitlist means you will only get in if seats aren't filled by matriculation time
any predictions on next wave?
hoping today
looks like they send out on Fridays
My application portal says admission offer sent, but i haven't recieved any email from them lol anyone else?
That happened to me a few weeks ago and I got the acceptance email an hour later
has anyone who applied ed get a scholarship?
has anyone here had an interview?
i got an email with the cane ID what does this mean?
@RainySordidStoat: I got one a while ago. no clue
Did anyone else's status and date disappear on your status checker?
I never had a date but my status is there
or substrates it says
mine disappeared then reappeared
