Hey guys,

I recently had a dental interview a few weeks ago and today I received a letter stating that my application has been put "on hold" and will be given further consideration at a later date in the application cycle.
My question is, how long do they usually take before they give you their final decision? Is this a bad sign considering this has happened post-interview:( ? Or do I still have a chance of getting an acceptance?...I fear all the seats will fill up by the time they even re-consider me :(.

I don't think anyone can tell you something you don't already know. You're on a waitlist. It's a worse sign than being accepted and a better sign than being rejected. I'd stay positive about that chance of getting that seat and just wait. It sucks but what can you do? Good luck!:luck:
