"The Admission Committee has carefully reviewed your file and the members are impressed by your credentials. At this time, the Committee has voted to defer making a decision on your file until later in the application season. The applicant pool fluctuates dramatically at this time of the year. We have to go slowly until we can get a better sense of how the pool will continue to develop in the weeks to come.
Making decisions about a large number of highly qualified applicants is a painstaking and difficult process for the Committee members. Our goal is to give every applicant full consideration and this often results in a file being read and reviewed a number of times during the cycle. Once a decision is made, it is final. We are careful about making final decisions and as a result, the process can take a longer time" .... (and so on...you get the gist)

You are qualified, but on the cusp and they want to see if they get a lot of more qualified applicants before waitlisting/admitting/rejecting you.
This is where you will probably want to start drafting a letter of continued interest and update any new awards/etc.

My stats were a 3.75 GPA (graduated from Rutgers - New Brunswick) and 156 LSAT. At this point, could any one give their opinion on just how far I actually am to an acceptance? Is there anything I could do to help the situation? And, is this considered waitlist or is it just a delay? Feeling pretty low now given the fact Rutgers was my 1st choice.
