Specifically the HTE and hold. I keep getting requests for a HTE category but I don’t really understand the difference?
So as far as I understand it:
HTE = Told Tight Email = basically an email saying “we’re being slow so this could take a while. We haven’t forgotten about you but don’t expect a decision next week.”
Hold = For whatever reason they’ve temporarily decided to not review your application (I think? this one is the least clear category for me)
Waitlist = We’ve decided that you’re not getting one of the first seat offers, but if you’re patient some might come your way. Trickle down admissions, if you will.
