If you are not admitted through ED do you still have a shot in the regular pool?


Well I think they finished interviews yesterday. And they can defer or deny you


Does anyone know what the odds of a deffer-ed candidate being accepted are?

The longer we have to wait the worse I feel about my application!

Does anyone know if you are deferred ED if you actually have any shot making it through regular decision?

Disclaimer: I interviewed on Tuesday but my date changed after the interview too. Did your date change twice after you were interviewed?

I don't think mine ever said "interview completed" but it's probably all the same. This really is torture - but I have a feeling we won't hear anything until tomorrow.

Someone should call anonymously haha

Does anybody know the contact method? Is it email for defer/deny and call for admits?

I'm in court all day. A ONE DAY TRIAL!!!

I'd use this as a distractor but may just turn my phone off
