Decision as well.

Top 3 or 4% at a Tier 1 in the north-eastern-ish part of the country.

i dont get it... there is a waitlist for EA applicants? why would they do that when they it is the same as being deferred to the regular decision pool for second semester grades?

Agreed, yak.  The differences between a Waitlist and a Deferral are not so great as to change the status checker for one and leave the other at Complete all summer.

ok, putting my  mad legal research skillz to use, I have been unable to find evidence of anyone who was straight "waitlisted" EA, only deferrals that I imagine became waitlists after second semester grades came in. check the transferapps db

Decision.  Top 10% at a T4.  I know those aren't great stats...hopefully I do not scare you guys too much.

If you folks are deferred or rejected, "soft factors" and strength of recommendations have a much larger role in this process than we have given them credit for. Quite a few of you folks have better stats than people who have already gotten in.

We've been waitlisted.  A current 2L I know who applied to transfer last year was waitlisted, went to decision upon the waitlist and heard back later in the summer.  He was top 10% at a school between 40-50. 

Ended up at a T-10 when he finished the year top 5% or so.
