To gobble up people they want early, and increase app numbers?


to feel powerful and make people sad.

Can't figure out why you would be deferred Sentry!

So, are most EA people just deferred instead of outright rejected?

I went from 11/18ish - 11/29 - 12/10 and no news....I am hoping that this could be interrupted as good news in that they still haven't rejected/deferred me! Here is to wishful thinking.

Feels like i'm up in front of a firing squad--no news is good news from Cornell this morning. I updated 12/1--12/10/--12/14.

I got deferred this morning and on my status checker it now says Decision status: Deferred to regular applicant pool and Decision Status Date: 12/14/2010. My last update before this was 12/7 if that helps in any way.

So does Cornell do one round of emails daily in the 10-11 AM hour?

yeah i'm pretty sure, although i've seen a couple days with 2 rounds (the second one being later around 2pm-ish) maybe there will be good news later today!

There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to who they're accepting vs. deferring.

Finally in review 12/13.
Anyone knows how long do they reach a decision?
Also, what does defer mean? It is a EA not a ED, does defer make any sense? Sounds like a waiting list option tho.

I'd much prefer to get a rejection than to have to wait any longer for a final decision.

12/1---->12/7----->12/14

No deferral email yet, but I guess it's on its way. :(

so if there is another wave this afternoon, is it likely to be more bad news?

:( So sorry to those who got deferred today. But, to those who have asked, the general consensus is that deferred =/= waitlist, but means you'll be reconsidered later in the cycle, maybe Feb. And, I'll point out, the afternoon wave that came yesterday was positive. Also, it followed a status update pattern that matched those of others who got deferred, only our statuses changed later on the same day. So, having the same status update pattern as a deferred bunch doesn't necessarily mean you'll be deferred, if you haven't heard yet. Good luck to those waiting!

Finally the ding hammer lended on me from Cornell. Well, when you reach for the stars, you're bound to fall at some point. Good luck to everyone else.
