It is basically like getting waitlisted but less formal. They will review your file again once they have a better idea of the incoming class. That is my understanding anyway.

Different schools use the words to mean different things, but generally a deferral or a hold are not decisions. Acceptance, denial and waitlist are decisions.

I agree. A deferral is them putting off a decision on you. Where as the others are decisions.

Sometimes it means that you're sprayed with a high pressure fire hose to keep you from doing something. Maybe that's "deterred".

No you've got it all wrong, it means to go under water...or is that submerged?

Isn't it when you meet with some people? No, wait, that's conferred.
