I got an email a few days back from Dean Pless stating that my application had been passed on to the 'second round' of admissions. Therefore, not an acceptance, denial or wait list. Does anyone know how long these holds on admissions take usually at U of I? I've heard that UIUC can take a horrid amount of time making their decisions after the first round of decisions are mailed out, and it is even worse for those that are wait listed.
Any news is good news.
