    Application Status "Hold"

    Advertisements



    Hey guys,

    I just recently applied, had interview in Kansas City, went really well. Have lla my stuff in the only paper they are waiting for is Official LOR, they have the unofficial faxed copy. Could that be a reason why my app was put on hold??? Is this good or bad?? Am I gonna get rejected, after getting this far??
    I am just freaking out!

    LOL, relax. You are fine. The fact that you had an interview means you have a good chance. You are probably right. It's most likely on hold cause of the official letter that is pending. Once they get that letter, then your status will go from "on hold" to active again or in review, whatever application status categories they use nowadays. Being on hold means simply that, it's on hold and probably won't get a final review until that letter comes in.

    If you are really anxious, then your best bet would be to go directly to the source and simply say, "I noticed that my application is on hold until my official letter of rec that is pending arrives. Is there anything else missing that I need to provide you with?" They will tell you up front if there is other stuff missing or other reasons why the app may be on hold if there are any other reasons.

    Good luck.

    both posters are correct. When you had the unofficial letter faxed in I'm sure Ross told you they needed the official one too for the committee. You can interview without official letters, but they can not review ur application for the final decision until they have all the official documents. I know it must have been horrible to see a hold on ur status. If you have sent the official letter in already, see if you can get it overnighted so you won't have to wait too much longer Good luck!
