Are the people who got the deferral email ED?

No, I believe Penn took care of all the EDs a while back.  These are RD.

Mine was ED.  They wrote an email 12/21 but forgot to send it until today.  They finally figured it out after I'd followed up with them twice in the past couple of weeks.

I thought that schools can defer you only if you're ED. It seems like everyone on here was RD, so is this more in line with a waitlist? When do they say you'll get a decision?

No, it's a deferral. They're just pushing the decision back until all the applications have been reviewed. If you are waitlisted, you can only be offered a position if others turn down their offer.

TITCR.  a deferral is not such a bad thing.  It means you have a shot for sure.

Okay, that's pretty blatant.
