Got my hold letter yesterday :/

I just passed 3 months with no contact. Advice?
I'm approaching that same benchmark.
I wish they'd just reject me already.

Applied early november, e-mailed to say dean's cert would be late since I'm abroad, they said they'd consider me without it and I'm STILL not complete
Yeah, I'm international. It's finny because it wasn't really an acceptance e-mail, it had the admitted student website info and it said that I should have gotten a phone call or letter by now but that if I hadn't that they hoped that this e-mail would make my weekend

I didn't retake, I'm just doing a grad program above. The only thing I really changed was application date and the results have been DRAMATICALLY different. Last cycle, Michigan dinged me and NYU waitlisted me, now I'm in at both. Personal statements, recs, everything is the same as last cycle, which goes to show that timing really does make a difference.
It's a one year MA in Spain, I actually didn't apply to Penn last year so that rule wouldn't apply in this case.
