I also spoke the dean of admissions about all this deferral business. He explained that there has been a significant uptick in applications (16%). he also said that they were not sure if it was just people applying earlier or more people or what. he also said that during the last recession they ended up with too many students and did not have enough room for them. They are trying to avoid that this year!
sounds like they will probably be trying to raise their #s too if they really do have that many more applicants. interesting, thanks for this info!
Yeah, but still. Deferring a 175/3.7? I mean what are they waiting for?
Prevailing theory so far is they defer people who the know will get into other top schools. They will probably more likely scoop up people for EA who are median/ above and will likely not get into better schools so they can lock them in early. Would make perfect sense to me, but we'll see. Still complete since 11/14.
