Today I received a letter from SUNY Downstate which I initially though was a rejection letter. However, the letter stated that ? The committee reviewed your application and decided to place your application in the ?Hold? category. This means that your credentials will be reviewed again in the Spring.? Now What I would like to know is the following. A)Is this a good or bad sign? B)Is there a good chance I will get invited for an interview later on? C)Is this just a delayed rejection. That I will eventually get rejected anyway? D)Is there a large pool of applicants placed in the ?Hold? category? E)Is this a waitlist? Thank you for your feedback.
