No they defer them to regular cycle.

Cause they know with numbers like that you will probably end up at a better school and not pick their school anyway!

Went from "In Committee" on 11/10/11 (I think), to "In Committee" on 12/6/11. Hopefully, this is the real "In Committee".

Held for second review. Did we ever figure out what this means?

ETA: not so much what it means, but why I guess.

I noticed that a lot of people on 2nd review were put off late spring last year

Ok...Decision Mailed...I'm a little nervous since there are nothing but rejections on LSN and my deposits haven't been updated from $0.00. I'm in Las Vegas, so it's not that far to be mailed. Should have something by the end of the week to report.

I'm bummed about this one. I would have considered SCU. Wasn't expecting a waitlist.

Does anyone that was held have the letter from them yet? Is it this a waitlist, or something a little different?

It's not waitlist - they will re-review your app in the regular admissions pool starting in January...

Being on second review is better than being waitlisted. as a wailistee you only have the opportunity to get a seat after everyone else has been reviewed and there happens to be seats open. Whereas a second review gives you the opportunity to have your application reviewed and admitted if you qualify. However, technically, second review is sort of like being waitlisted because by the time you get rereviewed it's going to be pretty late in the cycle and space will be limited.

So is there a difference between 2nd review and deferment to Regular Decision? I should have a decision in my mailbox tomorrow. Will keep you guys posted.

Did anyone else just get an email from the admissions dean? I almost had a heart attack, then realized it was just a newsletter...so evil :evil:

Same here. Quite the emotional rollercoaster until I saw it was a newsletter.

Truly. I applied ED on 10/21, went "In Committee" on 10/31, then to "In Committee" on 11/18 and haven't heard anything since then.
