Got notified I was placed on interview hold today!

"The decision was made after careful study of your application materials. Selection for an interview is limited to those applicants who have met all published prerequisites and standards, have the best overall qualifications, and are considered most suited to our program. Your hold status means that although not selected immediately for an interview, your application moving forward may be selected for an interview at anytime between now and our December interview date. All applicants not selected for an interview will be notified no later than February 1, 2021."

Applied/15, verified 5/18

I also got notified today that I was put on interview-hold. I appreciate the update and I guess now all I can do is hurry up and wait! 
 

Has anyone here heard directly either that they will be getting an interview or that they will not be moving forward?

I applied last year and I was put on interview hold initially and then shortly after was offered an interview! But, I also applied later in the cycle. I was put on interview hold for this year on 6/19. From my past experience, it seems like interview hold is the first step before being offered an interview for the majority of applicants.
