Just got the official you're actually on a hold email. Maybe I should call just to triple check, lol.

Wow. So I got the update email today. Apparently the original "On Hold" email I got last week was actually meant for me and the apology following it saying that it was a mistake - was itself a mistake...I think applying to this school may have been the real mistake here.

Lmao just the phrase " you were, in fact, supposed to receive that notification" cracks me up. What a joke.

I would be more hurt if I hadn't, in fact, received so many useless emails that I already wrote the school off.

Just now got the hold email as well. It's just strange because I was complete pretty recently. Also no update in my portal, although I'm one of the ones who doesn't have the "Application Status" line. I assume this one is real?
What does that mean? I just looked mine up and it says "application status: complete". Sounds innocent to me.

Seems like they finally got their email sys figured out so I'd assume it's real.

Just got the "this hold email was actually meant for you email". Pretty upsetting after hearing straight from the admissions office originally that they weren't putting *anyone* on hold until much later and that it was a mistake. Good luck to everyone hold or not. Fingers crossed everything works out for everyone in this thread :)

"Your application has been placed on hold"
“We sincerely apologize, hold was a mistake”
“Hold up, you were actually indeed supposed to be put on hold. Sorry”

The application process is already difficult. I'm IS so this hurts even more. :( ow

It looks like they wanted to send out the actual HOLD emails last Fri, but someone accidentally sent it to all applicants.
It 100% definitely needed to be better worded though. People are going to be put on hold, that's the reality, but ouch that was hard to read.

Why is this school playing with our feelings like this, I wouldn't be surprised if this is just another error considering Friday Admissions told me I wasn't on hold and now I get an email that I am......

Hm, that is strange. I was complete 09/22 and haven't had that line the entire time.

By the way, does anyone know what hold movement usually looks like for Upstate?
Seems like upstate hold is somewhere between soft R and a true hold. Most of people will get rejected but they sent some IIs from their hold pool

Are people on hold assigned priority for who gets off the hold list first? I know West Virginia does that but I’m not sure is SUNY upstate does that too.

Ah ok. That's good to know. I am wondering if the COVID-19 situation and the difficulties associated with remote operations is affecting this at all this year and making it closer to either a R or an actual hold.

honestly, Upstate is kinda weird because someone from last cycle with a hold got an II in late October although upstate said they won’t look at hold apps until december. So I guess our best bet is to forget about this mess and hope for II from other schools

So I just got off the phone with the admissions office. They clarified that applicants who are on hold do not have the "Application Status" line. Hope this helps anyone who was similarly confused!

The question is...well why not LOL

Also got the "yes you are actually on hold" email today. My application status does say hold in banner, so I think it is real.

EDIT: Also just as I said that, my application updated to include the Application Status line (it says "Hold").
ok, that's weird... b/c I received the email this AM saying I was "in fact, supposed to receive that hold" but i do have the "Application Status" column... it just doesn't have anything filled in it..

anyone else?

I didn't have an application status in the portal before, but I just checked and I have one now. It says hold for re-review after dec. 1st in portal.

For people that got an interview, can you explain what the wait list page is? From what I understand you select an interview date and the wait list page is just in case their is an opening before then?

Also, do they put everyone on hold before a rejection or are some people rejected outright?
