and he nor anyone else left any message regarding their waitlist status last year when discussing early action?

Don't know.  Don't think he really posted here.

Well, I don't see any mention of a waitlist ANYWHERE else other than after second semester grades are turned in or a deferral. Was this friend waitlisted after sending in his second semester grades? Doesn't seem to make any sense to waitlist people when it is essentially identical to a deferral.

It's a pretty bold statement to make about waitlist before anyone received any type of letter. I wouldn't put so much stock in that before someone/anyone gets a letter.

Yeah, perhaps that's why I've got a problem with the "we've been waitlisted" statement.

I will expect apologies from each of you the moment our letters arrive.

Why so pessimistic? Does your friend even remember if he was ever deferred?

so what, it would be a straight waitlist and pass the deferral stage? that would be surprising as a lot of those numbers are very good.

that's why i'm saying it's horribly unlikely. I've bumped up last year's version of this thread

Maybe your friend meant that he was deferred.  WL and Deferral are essentially the same thing.  Or that he applied RD and got a WL.  

I did a lot of searching the boards/yahoo/etc. and NEVER saw a WL during EA.  This cycle seems different than past cycles.  Last cycle, deferrals got "Decision" which is obviously not the case this year.  I wouldn't be surprised if you guys are acceptances.
