from looking at the EA Deferred thread from last year, in march it changes to Complete as of a particular date (i.e. 03/11) and soon afterwards (maybe a week or so) it will go to decision again which will either be an acceptance, denial, or placement on the reserve list for review again in june.
March!?! -sigh- it's gonna be a long spring eh?
What is the "reserve list"? Is that better than the waitlist?
Thanks for doing the recon on that. Do you have the link to the thread, looks like that's gonna be useful to me.
people on reserve will be re-evaluated in june and will be either accepted, rejected, or placed on the summer waitlist.
though at each stage there a few who get in, the vast majority don't... cornell's deferred/reserve/summer wait-lists are much less active than georgetown's waitlist.
there are some from last year who applied in october, were deferred in december, placed on the reserve list in march, placed on the summer waitlist in june, and then rejected in august....quite depressing.
i really think the best thing deferred/reserve/summerwaitlist applicants can do for themselves is to retake the lsat in feb/june.
