Deferred from Columbia ED

Deferred from Columbia ED
« on: December 15, 2005, 11:48:41 AM »
Just heard today.  I don't think there are too many of us, since most LSD/N-ers did really well with the early decision process this year.

But for those of us who will be waiting for several anxious months to hear back, come hang out here and wait with me!

Sorry to hear that.  You have great numbers and I bet you'll hear something positive from RD.

Thanks, man.  We're super close to being numbers twins, so best of luck to both of us  :)

Your deferral at Penn is making me very nervous... I know everyone is asking this of everyone else, but did you write the "Why Penn" essay (I did, since it's my third choice but also the most likely one for my acceptance... spent two weeks on that bad boy).

Nope, I didn't do the Why Penn, which seems very pivotal to Penn admissions (although I didn't do Why Umich either).  They kind of hinted at this when they said that they accepted additional documentation, so maybe that's why I was waitlisted.

Thanks, Postal. I figure, at least I'm still in the game.

Why do you think relatively few ED applicants who weren't accepted have heard about being deferred/rejected?  LSN only lists a handful.  Do you think the letters were only recently sent out and there will be a bunch today and tomorrow?

Yes. As Spaceman suggested above, it seems that we who have heard are in the tri-state area.
