No, but they're deferring all sorts of people. They can't assume they will fill their entire class with 168-170, 3.6-3.9s. There just aren't enough of those specific numbers to go around.
Plus, they're currently deferring people with 168-170, 3.6-3.9 numbers. I'm not sure what Cornell is doing, but it's definitely not pure yield protection. (YP might be an element of the strategy, but it doesn't fully explain what we're seeing.)
As we keep saying, we'll know more once we see the kind of people they admit under EA.
