    Post Applications Held

    Two reliable definitions of the verb "hold" are:

    "To have and maintain in one's possession"
    "To defer the immediate handling of"

    Which of the above definitions should I use for the following two examples from the web:

    1 "How Long Is My Application Held?
    All applications are held for six months. All job openings require separate applications."

    2 "Applications for doctoral degree programs in Administrative and Policy Studies are considered during five review periods each year. The review periods begin September 15, November 1, January 15, March 1, and May 15 with applications that are completed by those dates. Incomplete applications are held until the next review period. "
