ah ok, this makes me feel a bit better.  i was imagining i probably wouldn't hear from them until late may or some date like that.  hopefully not, i'd like to know what my options are before i graduate from undergrad!  and apparently a hold is a "good" sign (as good as not getting in can be).  supposedly admissions is known to mostly outright reject or accept -- they only hold people they are still interested in.

Hum, I dreamed of a phone call from Chicago last night :-[. It is all because of a mysterious UNKNOWN NUMBER that I missed last night at 8:00. Darn, I hope it was not from a evil sales person ;D, but actually from a admission office. Hope I can get a call again tonight and do not miss it.

my information is for chicago only...i know an alum who did some research on what it means to be "on hold" through his alumni network.  he says they seriously consider (although obviously don't sometimes admit) applicants on hold.  so basically, it's a bit better than waitlist.

1. obesity, 2. children, 3. book review.

did we all get the same suggestions?

Can you review a book about childhood obesity?  Three for the price of one!
Only if it was a recent best-seller. (!)  The "children" essay is actually about whether you think parents ought to be liable for childrens' actions.
