    hey guys! I interviewed on 1/19 and got an email saying that I was placed in a holding pool because Twin Cities has no more open spots. Does anyone know how many people are in this pool? She said there are people from Jan 13th and Jan 19th interviews in the pool but did not say how many actual people/what my spot in line is.

    I don't think they'll tell us how many people are in it. I did ask how/in what order you get out of the holding pool, and they said it is random. Just hope that lots of people are offered spots at Duluth. For every person that gets a spot at Duluth, another person will get out of the holding pool. :/

    so does that mean that there technically are spots left at the Twin Cities campus but it's just not proportional to the amount of spots left at Duluth? or are all of the seats actually already filled? also can people that are still interviewing get an acceptance while there are people in the holding pool, or if you get "accepted" do you automatically go into the holding pool now? sorry lots of questions haha the email was very vague

    No worries, it is pretty confusing, and I think my interview day was the first time they actually explained this whole thing to interviewees.

    Yes, there are still spots left (I am guessing there are still about 30% of spots available) in the Twin Cities, but because they fill the programs proportionally, there is now a holding pool for the Twin Cities, meaning more of the students who have been offered admission picked that campus than Duluth. So also yes, people are still being accepted to the Twin Cities campus, but they are automatically going into the holding pool until Duluth fills proportionally. I think they are trying to encourage people to be open to both campuses from here on out so that Duluth will start to fill up.

    I was wondering, if anyone knows.....if your admitted and placed in the holding pool do you pay the deposit at the time your placed in the holding pool? Or do you pay the deposit when you actually get a seat?

    I'm assuming you wait until you are actually offered a seat. When they emailed me saying that I was in the holding pool, they didn't mention anything about making a deposit, they just said that they would send out more info in a couple weeks!

    Anyone heard back from the 1/27 interview yet?? I am also worried about this whole holding pool deal. Just read some other comments..so in theory if people who interviewed 1/27 get offered a spot at Duluth, people who were in the pool from previous interviews can get pulled out? so hopefully the pool is not dramatically growing in size

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering if any of you who got accepted to the Duluth campus decide to go there? Anyone from CA?

    I havent heard anything yet. I am worried about the holding pool too. They mentioned it during the interview day, but they didn't really emphasize it.

    I have been placed in the holding pool! Not thrilled about that, but I am thrilled about "being an excellent addition to the program!" It says we have to wait until March 3rd for an update regarding the status of the holding pool.

    For anyone who is wondering, just got an email and there are currently 29 people in the holding pool. 10 from 1/19, 8 from 1/20, 4 from 1/27 and then 7 from 1/31 +2/3. All of the people from 1/13 have been offered spots, so that's good! It goes chronologically by interview date and then is randomized within that day.

    I got in too! I am also in the Twin Cities holding pool. In my email it said there are 29 people in it and that people will be pulled out in order of their interview dates, but those from the same interview dates will be in a random order:

    • January 19 (10 applicants)
    • January 20 (8 applicants)
    • January 27 (4 applicants)
    • January 31/February 3 (7 applicants)

    Here's hoping we all make it out of the holding pool and officially into the program!
