"on hold" means that your application have not been evaluated until further items are indemonicr said:nova waitlist is considered being "on-hold" by many other schools. i guess what they did was just sugar coated saying an applicant is being "waitlisted" instead of being "on-hold". i know creighton is the same way. they put a few hundred people on the waitlist. so with these schools, if your application status is "waitlisted", unless you have pretty good stats, your chance of being accepted is not good.
"on hold" does not exactly mean your application have not been evaluated until further items are in. it means that at some schools, but i know a lot of schools that doesn't use it for that definition you gave. i know schools like marquette, either accepts, reject, or put student "on-hold". which is to be review agian, just like nova's "waitlist". i guess different schools has different meaning for the terminology of "waitlist" or "on-hold"Yah-E said:"on hold" means that your application have not been evaluated until further items are in
"waitlisted" means that your application have already been evaluated but certain part(s) of your application was/were deemed insufficient
They're not the same and at NSU Dental waitlisted is definitely not "on hold"!
