I was deferred :/
I must not understand your use of deferred
; do you mean held
? Isn't deferral something you elect to do, rather than something that's done to you? Also- any thoughts on what might have been a cause for concern on your app? My PT response is looming and I'm becoming paranoid about the weaknesses in my own app.
I think he means "held." And I doubt it had anything to do with anything in his application being any cause for concern. If you look at LSP for example, almost all of the people who have gotten in through PT are auto-admits, they
are "reaches" for Duke, and its hoping to attract some of them by admitting all of them through PT to up those odds. On the other hand, for some reason, they also grant PT status to some who are "considers" by the numbers. His being held just means that - they are going to actually weigh and consider his application with the larger applicant pool in mind. Whether they even read everything in his application at this point before making the decision to do so....who knows...its possible they didn't and just made the determination based on his numbers profile.
