My letter requested that I send a first quarter transcript back in December. I then received a HOLD status letter in January. I just emailed UCSF about interviewing hold candidates, and will post when I get a response. Are there really only ~ 100 of us on hold?happygirl said:ive been on hold foreeever! i sent an update, but i didnt sent an official transcript. were we supposed to?? uh oh
do any of you know anyone who has come off hold to interview? for UCSF of course, I know at others schools. Are all of you August MCATers?opinionkitten said:im in this boat, ive heard universally horrible things about this hold status, nice to know that anyone of the 100 gets off the list. i sent in a letter of interest, no updates. the hold letter said interviews as late as april 15 so the invites for these should come soon if they come at all. or perhaps they mean an invite for an interview comes as late as april 15, that would be great to interview in may or something. i guess top 10's can do as they please...
My hold letter was dated Jan 25demalo said:when you were put on hold did you do anything beside send in an update and official transcript? Also, when do you think they will send out invites for interview?
heres to hoping....i got three big R's yesterday (sf, harvard, and columbia) but the la status change has me all excited and goddamn top 10's are not going to bring me down. here that, stanford?UCLAstudent said:It's okay, opinionkitten. Hopefully good news is in the mail from you-know-where.
I got the big R's from harvard and sf (after being put on hold) as well, along with the UCLA status change - here's hoping that we both get a huge swing in luck.opinionkitten said:heres to hoping....i got three big R's yesterday (sf, harvard, and columbia) but the la status change has me all excited and goddamn top 10's are not going to bring me down. here that, stanford?
I just got my post-hold rejection dated 3/3/05. It's all good...I'm an out-of-stater.VeggieGal said:sorry to be annoying, but when were your rejection letters (post-hold) postmarked? i just got the big stanford rejection on the 10th, postmarked on the 7th after waiting for FOREVER. i am an out of stater for UCSF, so i was even surprised that they gave me a secondary, much less a hold for interview. i am not expecting much, however. i just wish they wouldn't have the hold category if they only plan on interviewing 5-10 more people. why not just interview them from the beginning and reject everyone else?
