Shane, any word on your end?

Are these deferrals coming through email? I haven't been home yet to check the mail but I didn't get any emails today :shock: .

Joe I'm so sorry :cry:

Gaaaah. I tried to stay away from TLS for a little while.. clear my head of application nonsense. But I didnt even last a week :|

It's a little bit killer knowing my app isn't even going to be reviewed for a month, heh. WANT!

Not a bad idea! Yah I applied there too but with my gpa my chances are laughable at best. I wonder if more deferrals are going out tomorrow :/

When you are an ED applicant, they can choose do "defer" your decision and reconsider your application with the regular decision apps in april or something. Unfortunately, what usually happens to deferred applicants is that they get "held" (waitlisted essentially), and then rejected sometime in the summer--hence why it is known as a "soft rejection."

Man, I find myself obsessively checking these threads even though I'm already in. This is madness. I want to move to New York already.

Though I'm mostly checking because I want the rest of you to get good news (and I'm addicted to Columbia)! Good luck to all of you!!!

Morning deferrals in the ED thread. Probably the last time I'll have info to post here. Sigh.

I seriously was so anxious that I couldn't fall asleep last night. And last night was supposed to be the first night of the week that I got a decent night's sleep. :?

I am now just hoping that they forgot to put me in the ED pile and that I'm gonna be considered with the RD folk lol.

Also deferred this morning. Honestly, I'm happy about this -- it means there is more work to do and an opportunity to do it. CLS 2014 - I'm not giving up.

No I meant considered RD the whole time. RD=I have a chance. Deferral=pwnage.

I just can't wait for this thread to turn to RD. So sick of the ED talk.

Yeah, I want some material with which to speculate. Too bad Columbia's status checkers are booooring. (They probably know better than to feed the TLS beast.)
