They put me on that hold as well guys. Is Penn State one of those schools that a hold = a soft R?
I kinda don't think so because they've sent out actual Rs? but I'm pretty sure it's not a good sign :(

Last year's thread seems to show that pre-II hold means you won't be reviewed again until late Feb/early march for a late March interview.

So basically soft R :(

So where does it say hold or rejection in the status? My portal has been messed up since they had to manually fix my LoRs. I have application complete a green check mark then blank space.

I got the complete email and have the layout you just described. I'm assuming (hope) it means we have not yet been reviewed and is not a hold/rejection.

I received an email that I was placed on hold. In your portal where you have all the green checks, if you were placed on hold, it will say "Interview Hold" and have a red exclamation point instead of a green check.

I haven’t got any emails either. If they sent the emails at the same time, maybe we passed this wave of holds...finger crossed

Thanks for the replies guys! Makes me feel not alone and relieved. Very informative too.

What do you mean by this? Is GW's hold known to mean something different
Apparently, GW's hold actually turns into IIs fairly often, but at most other places a hold is essentially a soft R

+1, similar complete date, hoping we get some good news after today’s slaughter
Me, too! I was complete mid-Sept, so watching the August slaughter brings me one step close to the gallows.

For those that received the hold/soft R, was your application portal updated to reflect this?
Yes lmao. Way to rub in that soft R aspect though :1LOL:

What does the application portal say when you are placed on hold?
