Guess folks are trying to get a sense of those who are EA but didn't get the 11/20 or 11/24 DR. I agree that it's not very useful at this point because of the all the timing differences.

Why is deferred even considered a decision? Would this only happen to EA applicants and does it just mean that you are being help over to the regular pool?

A decision to make a decision...stupid IMO

and it's even more ridiculous when you consider applicants on last years' threads who were deferred, then later placed on reserve, and then summer waitlisted.

plus some people listing stats did get the deferral...it seems like it would be more helpful if people listed their status along with their information.

Yeah, it'd make more sense if in the stat request people specified whether or not they went to decision.

LOL, I'm kidding. But yeah, I did notice some of those people were deferred and didn't say so, adding to the uselessness of that progression. I put status on mine, cuz I'm smooth like that.

I think the original idea was to compile a list of people who hadn't gone to decision yet... Whatever, the stats aren't exactly clarifying anything.

Let's start making some educated guesses and predictions here and see if we can come up with a pattern. If you are still at "EA Complete" then post your stats in the format below.

EA Complete Date:
Stats (simply just say 25,median, below if you don't want to reveal your actual scores):
Unsolicited Fee Waiver: (Yes or No):
Why Cornell:
URM:

EA Complete Date: 11/05
Stats: 25% (both)
Unsolicited Fee Waiver: (Yes or No): Yes
Why Cornell: Yes, very specific one
URM: Black URM Male

this is why some of us started listed their stats, because we were asked to. I guess we're sheep.

Edit: this wasn't originally posted by me, I copied it over for clarity.
