I'm not a theologian, just a Catholic with a childlike faith.  So could you kindly simplify this for me?...

When I was in RCIA and asked to be baptized immediately, rather than wait until the Easter Vigil several months away and the priest told me, "No.  You're a catechumen, not a candidate and the Church has catechumens baptized at the Easter Vigil, but if you die before then you'll be considered to have had baptism of desire and be saved" and had I died, what would have happened?

Your priest was right.
