Are we really expecting any of the 11/20 or 11/24 DR's to be acceptances? I would love to be optimistic about this, but it's a little rough with the decisions people have been getting back so far.

Deferred. I literally cried when I got the letter. My boyfriend started pouring me a glass of wine immediately, looking quite alarmed.

Yes - but so far 100% deferreds is not sounding too promising.

Nope. I mean, they had to give me a decision by the 15th, right? They won't get my score by then.

*sigh*

Its ok. I'm actually really, really bummed but thats ok. So this means I won't get considered again until after February 1st? They say they email them and send in any new information before then.

Or it's just possible that the 11/20 and 11/24 decisions are a mix of deferrals and acceptances, but the deferrals all went out in an earlier batch of mail? I don't know, at this point it's just guessing.

Would acceptances take longer because of larger envelopes!?!??!?!

jk

But avocado is in DC and has yet to receive a decision, which seems kind of random since people all over the East appear to be hearing.

:?: rly? from 11/20 I assume.

edit: Oh, I see on LSN a CA person who was deferred from the 11/24 bunch. I wonder if they are in CA now, though.

I'm so sorry :(


Thanks! Hey, its not a deny, right? Sort of a bummer...it seems like everyone is waiting to tell me if they like me or not. This has happened several times. A few admissions offices have told me point blank its their policy to wait but, *sigh.* I haven't even heard back from a lot of my safeties while people with lower numbers are getting in all over the place. I love William and Mary for telling me whats up. Love them.

...No pressure on the 5th now or anything. :shock:

I think the accepts could take longer, if they are large envelopes/packages instead of just regular mail - and from the numbers we've seen who went dr 11/24, I'd expect at least some accepts. Still, with the numbers we just saw, splitter hatred is not boding well for my type...

Why would these be deffered at Cornell? Especially the second one. Numbers above 75th. Maybe something with the application.

The first person got into CLS, so I doubt there was anything wrong with her app. Maybe they didn't think she'd attend, deferred her, but she wrote a convincing LOCI.

Who knows? This is such a confusing process. I hate being in the dark all of the time. I wish they could just be a little more transparent. I mean, why do they put on the website "decision" but not say what it is? Seems stupid.
