    So I wake up this morning and get an email from University of Chicago saying that I was placed on hold for a second review, that they will be waiting to receive/review more applicants before they make a decision on my app.

    What does this mean?!?! Not sure how to feel about this....Does anyone have any personal experience about the "on hold" status and whether or not this is overall good or bad?

    thanks.

    I got that same email a week or so ago. I was disappointed because I would love to live in Chicago and I love the school, but on the bright side....at least it's not a rejection. I don't know what the odds are for people in this group eventually getting interviews. I guess the only thing to do is to update them on your classes/activities and maybe write a letter if it is one of your favorite schools.

    I was also put on hold. I think I was complete in late Sept to early Oct. I got put on hold mid Nov.

    Chicago is a killer school; I'd love to go there, too. I'll see what happens.
